Scalextric C3013 Jaguar XKRS
Johnson Controls Rocketsports

Soon to be released is Johnson Controls liveried Jaguar XKRS from Scalextric. I purchased the very first XKRS, (green and silver) but haven't been temped by Scalextrics past 3 livery offerings but that's just changed!

The black Jag looks stunning especialy with the big cat livery down the sides. The XKRS is one of the fastest Scalextric slots on my track and has the highest level of internal detail I have seen in any Scalextric offering.

This from Scalextric: "Scalextric introduces driver Paul Gentilozzi’s No. 3 Johnson Controls Jaguar XKRS as the fourth livery of this modern muscle car bearing the famous Jaguar badge. A very wide rear axle width of 62mm ensures fantastic road-holding performance. The interior includes full cockpit detail.

High detail, magnatraction and quick change braid plate. Digital ready chassis. Wide rear axle gives excellent road-holding attributes which will make this car a must for the racer.
Scalextric are the only manufacturer to produce this car.
High build-quality specification with equal high performance straight out of the box. Superior livery paintwork. Huge collector fan base for Jaguar cars."
