NEWS: Cursa Alfa 33-2

Cursa Models release the 1/32 Alfa 33-2 "Periscopica"

The Cursa Alfa 33-2 Periscopia is one beautiful looking slot car and what can I say about that wooden base, absolutely stunning!

From the Cursa Models: "Cursa Models have been producing slot cars since 1990. In a new move, Cursa Models will be producing "ready to run" 1/32 scale models made from our composite materials known for their lightness and strength that have had much success in 1/24 scale to date."

"Our latest model, created by Juanjo Moya (Mini Replicas in its early stages, and currently Cursa Models and Power Slot manager and modeller) and Albert Jobal (Slot Adictos spanish forum administrator), and the car of the Slot Adictos Forum 2009: the Alfa Romeo 33-2 "Periscopica", which gets it's nickname from the periscope-like central air intake."

"The car will be delivered with the wooden base and metal name-plate as in the photos. The series will be limited to 300 units, numbered and including a certificate signed by the designers and builders. The "Periscope" is a model considered by many experts as one of the most beautiful race cars ever built. Despite it's short racing history it made a remarkable début victory at the Fléron Hill Climb, 1967 in Belgium as well as 5th place in the 1000 Kilometres of Nürburgring in 1967, being the only vehicle capable of following the Porsche 910, and staying ahead of a competitive Ford GT40."
