C2774 Scalextric Ford Mustang FR 500C

I just received some news from Cathy at Armchair Racer, due for Australian release in February the all new Scalextric Ford Mustang FR 500C. This from Scalextric:

"History: The Ford Racing Mustang FR500C is a highly tuned race variant of the 2005 Ford Mustang. The car has a 5.0L engine delivering 420hp. The No.5 Ford Mustang GT of Ian James and Tom Nastasi was victorious in the VIR 200 Grand American Road Racing Grand Am Cup race at Virginia International Raceway, October 8, 2005. The win enabled Ford to claim the 2005 Grand Am Cup Manufacturer's Championship with drivers Empringham, Nastasi and James."

"The Scalextric model: The high detailed car has a full driver interior, finely detailed livery, working head and tail lights and is digital ready. This means that the car can be used on standard Scalextric straight out of the box or converted for use on the Scalextric Digital system in just a few seconds, as you prefer."

"Features: Digital Plug Ready (DPR) – allows conversion for use with our SCALEXTRIC DIGITAL range in 30 seconds using C8515 Digital Plug! Adjustable Magnatraction positions. Quick change guide braid plate. Head lights and Brake lights."
