Scalextric Ford GT40
German Limited Edition

The ManicSlot Mini Review


  • The Scalextric Ford GT40 is a very collectable slot car especially in limited edition form, (the German GT40 cars are limited to only 2,000 releases each)
  • Strong 'from the box' performance,
  • Stunningly detailed slot car
  • Fantastic paint and decal finish
  • Front lights
  • 2 magnet positions


  • Average non magnetic performance


The Scalextric GT40 is one of the most popular slot cars ever released. Scalextric struck a pot of gold when they decided to release this beauty. Gt40s are very popular and as a result limited edition releases sell out quickly and soon become very collectible. The German limited edition cars are limited to 2,000 editions each and have all but sold out Worldwide. If you are lucky enough to find one of these for sale, buy it.

It will be very interesting to see if the Scalextric releases retain their collectability now that and NSR are going to release their own versions of the popular mark.
