Nuremberg 2011 - Scalextric: New Beetle, MGB, Lotus Cortina, McLaren, Kits & More

Posted by: LaToya in Member Blogs

The Scalextric stand was extra impressive this year, with a huge amount of great new stuff on show in ready-to-go and pre-production form. The new models include a classic early-sixties Beetle, MGB and the new McLaren, while there are also new kits and sets that tie in with Cars to appeal to younger slot car racers. Plenty of great high-detail sets for the collector too, though, including themes like Aston-Martins and Brawn GP. A bit of Bond too! Here's the pictures:
