NEWS: Carrera LMP lineup

Carrera has become serious about LMP Prototype class slots in 2007. The first releases where the Audi R10 TDI and Porsche RS Spyder. The Peugeot 908 HDI is the 3rd LMP release from Carrera in the last 3 months.
Carrera are not alone in releasing the Peugeot 908 HDI, both SCX and Avant Slot are also releasing the model. With such competition for fans of the 908 hard earned dollars, it will be interesting to see how Carrera fare. Carrera will find themselves mid way between the SCX 908 and the Avant offering as far as cost goes. Interestingly enough, of all these releases the Carrera car looks the most impressive and the Carrera wheel detail if far superior.

The Peugeot 908 HDI comes with front light (Xenon) and rear light function. I'm assuming there will be no chassis change from the recent Carrera releases so we see 2 adjustable magnet positions along with the unique Carrera direction change switch.

The Carrera 908 will be released in 2 liveries, the striking straight black FAP test version and the FAP race version. The xenon lights and the striking black release might just be enough to give Carrera the sales advantage. Either way, the manufacture that can get the 908 out first stands to do well.
