Carrera have published some very exciting photos of their 2011 line up from Nuremberg. The photos show Carrera Go, 1:32 and 1:24 scale up coming releases.

It looks like Carrera will be releasing quite a few 1:32 DTM cars this year, Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4 which are always a big hit especially in Europe. The Bosch chrome Mercedes DTM looks particularly bloody impressive I must say and I'm also a pretty big fan of the driver, a certain someone's brother!

Coming as no big surprise, Carrera will also be releasing several more liveries of the Audi R8 and they all look fantastic! As I had also greatly hoped for, Carrera will also be releasing the new Mercedes SLS AMG as a Safety Car (see below) for all the F1 fans out there, excellent work Carrera.

Next come some photos of the Carrera 'Go' range of cars due for release in 2011. Looks like Carrera might be taking their Go range in a new direction with BMW X3 RAID cars (including a Dakar livery), Dune Buggies and Subaru WRC releases.

Carrera will also be releasing quite a few new 1:24 scale cars and if you're into this scale you may find it difficult picking which one to get! After the huge success of the 1:32 Ferrari 599XX, Carrera will also be releasing it in 1:24 scale. While a very impressive looking slot, the 1:24 show is completely stolen by Carreras release of the Ferrari 250 GT, what an amazing looking slot car! The red 250 GT is featured in the below photos but I have a feeling that the silver GT in the background will be the most striking of the liveries.

So it looks like Carrera are well on track for an impressive 2011. You can find out more about Carrera products on the Carrera Website Here
