NEWS: Scalextric Lotus F1 2011 LE

Lotus-Renault F1 R31 2011
C3269A 'Bruno Senna', 1500 Limited Edition

WOW, WOW, WOW!  Call me behind the times (and ok this is old news) but I just stumbled across these photos of Scalextric's limited boxed edition of the Lotus-Renault R31 F1 car driven by Bruno Senna in 2011 and words to describe how beautiful the slot is completely fail me.  Just look at the pictures, what an awesome looking slot car.  It appears that the LE slot is only available directly through the Scalextric website or from Lotus.

From Scalextric: 'The Renault F1 Team was reborn as Lotus Renault GP for 2011 under a change of ownership and the signing of a major sponsorship deal with Lotus. The world of Formula One embraced the return of the iconic and distinctive black and gold livery that was last seen on track when Lotus and Renault joined forces back in the 1980s.

On 29th July the Brazilian Bruno Senna, nephew of the legendary 3-time Champion Ayrton Senna, made his first appearance for Lotus Renault GP by performing testing duties for the team on the Friday of the Hungarian GP. Bruno went on to secure his position as a race driver for the team for the remainder of the season and scored his first points in F1 by finishing ninth at the Italian GP.

This Scalextric Limited Edition model is fitted with a high performance 20,000rpm motor, hardened rear axles and enhanced decoration detail to the driver’s helmet.

This is a limited edition of 1,500 models.'
