Scalextric Jaguar XKRS

The ManicSlot Mini Review


  • Impressive 'from the box' magnetic performance,
  • High level of detail, (excellent internal dash and driver's cockpit)
  • High level paint finish and decal detail
  • Forced centring, quick change glide
  • Fantastic looking wheel
  • Rubber roof aerial


  • The 1:1 Jaguar doesn't have lights and as a result the Scalestric model also doesn't have lights, (lights are stickers). This is not a weakness as such, however other Scalextric models do represent better value as they come standard with front and rear lights
  • Rear wing is a little on the fragile side and my not survive a serious crash


The Jaguar XKRS is an impressive looking slot car particularly in the British racing green/silver livery. This is one of the fastest Scalextric cars on my Carrera layout achieving sub 6 second lap times. The XKRS is a fun slot car to drive and race, Scalextric have recently released a 4th livery so it looks like the XKRS will be available for some time.
