BRM Show Sauber C9 at Slotlandia

BRM (Italy) Model Cars showed pre-production test shots of their upcoming Sauber-Mercedes C9 1/24 slot car at the Slotlandia 2013 show.

Both the upcoming chassis and undecorated body were on display, with the body shown in high downforce and low downforce (LeMans) styles. Because of the details on the low downforce bodies, it is assumed that they will eventually model the 1989 LeMans winner (shown above) which had a unique appearance compared to the other two team cars.

A BRM representative was quoted at the Nuremberg show that the C9 would be on dealers shelves before the end of 2013, but I am guessing that 1st quarter 2014 is a better estimate.
