I had heard Scalextric were thinking of doing a V8 Esprit too but the damn thing kept stopping around the track and proved too expensive to tool right.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Looks like a the S1 is slated for release in the Summer and the JPS S2 in the Autumn.

I wonder if the FYEO or Essex turbos are going to follow in the not too distant future too?

Looks decent but I’m sure they could’ve done a better job with the front bumper design! The rear lip spoiler looks a bit lacking in the pic shown too. Pity when you look at the detail of the wheels, and the body generally…..but overall nice to see😎

That might not be the final render. The JPS car picture wasn't very good when first announced back in January last year, but a subsequent release of an updated image later in the year looked much better, so hopefully the inaccuracies on this will be addressed before release later this year. Either way it's nice to be able to add another Esprit to my Scalextric collection :)

Did you watch the series about Hornby? They own Scalextric - it showed how the designers make the models and the lengths they go to to get the accuracy right. Indeed they made a model of a Formula E car and used the actual design drawings of the real car to make the model.

Great series actually Dave as it included Airfix as well as Hornby and Scalextric. If anyone is interested you can see the episodes here for free (you may to register, but nothing to pay and no auto opt-in to advertising):   https://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/shows/hornby-a-model-world/watch-online/6284300923001
