NEWS: Scaleauto SLS AMG


Scaleauto have just fired a warning shot across the bow of the slot car world's heavy weights and it's a warning they will need to heed.  Scaleauto have released some 1/32 scale slot cars in the past but they haven't really been aiming at the mass slot car market, until now! 

The Scaleauto Mercedes SLS AMG is here and it looks absolutely awesome!  Carrera has already released the SLS AMG but Carrera's offering is aimed more at the hobby slotter, not the hardcore racer!  The first Scaleauto release will be the 2010 Presentation car which models the SLS AMG GT3 that was releases by Mercedes Benz in Mexico to honour the success of the SL badge during the 1950's 3100km Carrera Panamerica races across Mexico.

The 1:1 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT3 was designed in accordance with FIA GT3 specifications as a racing sports car for customers competing in both sprints and endurance races.  Detail levels of the Scaleauto model look great and accurately reflect the 1:1 car beautifully.  I've never been a huge fan of white liveries but we all know that they make for fantastically highly visible slot cars.

The chassis design looks impressive and being a Scaleauto we can expect that this slot will perform as well as the real thing on the track.
