Scalextric Aston Martin DBR9

The ManicSlot Mini Review


  • The Scalextric Aston Martin DBR9 is a very popular slot, it has good potential to become collectible
  • Rubber aerials and rear-vision mirrors
  • Front and rear lights
  • Impressive 'from the box' performance, (sub 6 seconds on my track!)
  • High level of detail
  • Fantastic paint finish
  • Strong non magnetic performer


  • Significant play in rear axle, (can be fixed with a few shims)
  • Rear tail prone to break


The Aston Martin DBR9 is an excellent release from Scalextric. A slot that looks as good as it performs on the track. I love the body detail, the countless vents, rubber aerials and rear vision mirrors and internal detail.

If you're a GT fan then a few of these is a must have for your collection.
