Sideways Ford Mustang Turbo Gtp 1982

02 Aug 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
Another new model, this time from Sideways is the Ford Mustang Turbo GTP 1982. There are actually two of these that have been released together, the other a 1981 version which is really just a different livery overall. As is usual these are very well put together and beautifully detailed. They will go well alongside all the other Group 5 cars Sideways has been releasing over the last few years.

Slot.it Alfa Romeo 155 V6

02 Aug 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
A little late putting this up but it is well worth mentioning that Slot.it have released their first sedan in the Alfa Romeo 155 V6 DTM car. In typical Slot.it fashion it is a very good representation of the real car and also great out of the box. I will attempt to have a bit more in depth look at the car in the next week or so.

Wynns Porsche 962

16 Dec 2015

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
HAH, and you thought you had enough 956 and 962 liveries. This one is so so pretty.

The Porsche 962 is a sport-prototype racing car created to replace the already successful Porsche 956, in order to allow it to race the IMSA and WSC Group C competitions.
It was one of the most successful racing cars ever and it won several competitions all over the world:
- World Sport-Prototype Championship in 1985 and 1986

- 24h Le Mans in 1986, 1987 and 1994
- IMSA GTP Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988
- 24h Daytona in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1991
- 12h Sebring in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988
The IMSA 'GTP' regulations required some modifications in comparison with Porsches designed for the Group C.
Front axle was shifted 12 centimetres ahead, so that driver's feet could stay behind the hubs of the wheels. The boxer 6 cylinders engine had a displacement of 3.2 litres, was air-cooled, with only one turbo, 2 valves per cylinder and one single overhead camshaft.
This car, driven by John Hotchkis, Jim Adams, John Hotchkis Jr, reached 5th place at the 1987 Daytona 24 Hours racing for the Hotchkis Racing Team.
