Cool...Chevy dominated the last 4 years in WTCC--the last 4 WTCC championships were won in a Cruze, 3 by the great Yvan Muller (now teamed w/ 9 time WRC champion Sebastian Loeb at Citroen) and one by Rob Huff.

This is the first mock-up, so depending on revisions it's probably a 3Q release.  One of the things Revell has "picked up" on with their announcing releases Quarterly is that kits seem to come to market a lot "faster" if you don't announce them until they're 2/3rds of the way done.  This is not part of Aoshima's Shizouka Hobby Show display, but rather something they just dropped to churn up speculation and interest on their way out of the office for Golden Week on Friday.

If it can be built as a U.S.-spec consumer car, (or can be with little headache,) I'm in.

Hmmm....

 

Well, it's got the LHD dashboard, that's the major part.

 

Everything else can be....massaged. Yeah, that's the word. Massaged.

You would also have to rework the body, as its not a showroom stock body,  as it has a WTCC wide body kit added, the entire front clip is different , along with a the rear bumper , here, this will give you and idea

Oh.....oy gevalt.

 

I'll revert to my previous stance. If all that ground effect stuff is molded in, we have a serious problem.

 

Otherwise, it's still a handful.

 

Hmmm....may have to take a pass, at least on this version. Hopefully, they'll do a little closer to normal down the road.

I saw these race at Sonoma in 2012, was impressed how they dominated the field, especially against BMWs. Not sure if I would build one but glad to see these subjects come to market. There is a huge variety of kits available to us modelers so everyone has something to build!
