NSR Ford GT40s
1055 - 24hr Le Mans 1966
SET04 - 24hr Le Mans 1966 (Winner)

When NSR (and announced they would be adding the GT40 to their line-up, I had my reservations, Scalextric had been successfully releasing GT40 liveries for many years and I had many Scalextric GT40 in my collection.  Of course NSR's focus was on creating a highly engineered and performing slot car and as such, I don't really compare the NSR and Scalextric GT40 with numerous liveries of each in my collection.

NSR's GT40 is an absolutely beautiful slot car to drive on the track, particularly in non-magnetic trim.  if you don't have one in your collection, NSR's GT40 is a worthwhile addition for sure.  

From NSR: 'The Ford GT40 is an innovative model with high tech components, highly performing on track still respecting the scale modellistic aspect.

Ford GT40 comes in sidewinder setup. The motor is Shark 20k which has 20000 rpm @ 12 Volts 164 gr/cm.

NSR's objective is to make a Classic car using modern technology, so high tech ‘Ready To Race’. It needed to be competitive straight out the box.

The Ford GT40 was created in the streamline of the Mosler GT project which has dominated in the GT top class either in National and International competitions since it was born in 2006.

In according with our NSR philosophy, we have worked to obtain the best performances without any compromise. The NSR “Classic” model cars are without doubts the fastest in the world.'
