The ManicSlot Mini Review
- Carrera are still the only slot car manufacture to make the Ferrari 512BB
- Strong 'from the box' performance
- Impressively detailed slot car
- Front and rear lights
- 2 adjustable magnets
- Reverse direction switch
- Average non magnetic performance
The Carrera 512BB was popular when released but has not achieved the fame of Fly classics or the likes of Scalextric GT40s. This means you can still manage to pick up one of these beauties for a modest price although mint condition 512BBs are getting harder to find. The car is fun to drive although it does feel a little heavy.
The 512BB has awesome magnetic track performance (as tested on my Carrera track) - this car features in the ManicSlot's top 10 magnetic lap times alongside the likes of Slot.it and Sideways, no small achievement!
