Turns out it is really cool, the Larbre Competition team colours work really well together and they are highly visible running around the track. And the lights are really awesome, fewer manufactures include lights these days, Scalextric, SCX and Carrera with Carrera not including lights in all models.
Performance is excellent, ok you won't find a floating motor pod in this chassis but it does come standard with great 'from-the-box' track pace. True the rear rubber and remove the 1-2mm rear axle play with a shim and you'll find 0.5-1 second on a 20 metre lap track! Detail levels are impressive, front and rear grills, various intakes, brake discs, significant internal cockpit and driver detail - did I mention the lights!?
In 2009 the factory backed racing effort chose to step down into the GT2 category in order to compete with the same cars on the track that the production model competes with in showrooms. The Corvette race cars are powered by 6.0 litre GM small block that is based on the 7.0 litre LS7R that powered the outgoing GT1 version. The engine output is a relatively conservative 470 HP.'
The below video from Youtube gives you a small indication that perhaps the Larbre Competition team is a little happy with their GT2 win at Le Mans in 2012.
