Scalextric Plan Two Limited Edition USA Only Releases for 2014

Scalextric have released details of two Limited Edition cars exclusive to the USA to be produced in 2014.

The #12 Lotus 49B sporting Gold Leaf livery and the high rear wing had a guest driver when Mario Andretti joined Team Lotus in the third car entered in the 1968 USGP at Watkins Glen. Andretti took pole position on the second day of qualifying, 0.07 seconds ahead of Jackie Stewart. This was Andretti's first ever Formula One Grand Prix and his first time driving at Watkins Glen.

The second USA special edition is the #2 Shelby Trans-Am Boss 302 Mustang in "Mustang Clubs" livery that was driven in the 1969 SCCA Trans Am series by Dan Gurney at Pacific Raceways International (Australian Horst Kwech at other events). This model is similar to the #1 Peter Revson limited edition Mustang of a few years ago that is very much sought after by collectors. We assume this will have the new DPR chassis but do not yet have confirmation.
