I do not like race cars (by default), but I think I could make something streetable out of this. Say, if I cut back that front dam a little and dug some seats and door panels out of the spares box. And then of course, lost the monkey bars and bottles - I could call it a tuner. 

I'm interested but on the fence for now. I feel the need to see the price tag and a review first.

Touring Cars, GT Cars (Tudor, Le Mans, DTM, V8s etc.) is what NASCAR used to be. Production based race cars that fans and the consumer can identify with. I will buy this kit and just about any other production based race car kit.  And if I could make a suggestion why has no kit manufacturer produced one of Alex Zanardi's touring cars?  He is a supremely talented and popular driver.  And the things he has accomplished on and off the track since he lost his legs is an inspiration to us all.  Please please some one step and make a plastic or resin kit.

Wow, I'm getting one or two of these. Ray Mallock's race workshops are about 20 miles from me in Northamptonshire were they have built, tested and perfected the Cruze for racing and Robb Huff, an aquantance is an ex-WTCC World Champion in these cars. (the closest car in the picture above)

A superb race car for the World stage and a superb looking kit with plenty of racing detail.

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

I'm with Charlie on this one. I'd love to more kits of modern, ordinary cars, like the Chevy Cruze offered in model form. And like Charlie, the more I look at this kit. The more likely I'll be passing on it.

Wonder what ignition key system it has?

Never seen one of them running pass my house.

of course I came home one day to find one of the first runs had run into the ditch in front of my house. I had the first wreck debris from a Cruze

As per Beemax's Facebook page:

1/24 CHEVROLET CRUZE WTCC - JUNE 2014
1/24 1991 ST165 RALLY MONTE CARLO - AUGUST 2014
1/20 McLaren MP4 /2 - DECEMBER 2014


The Cruze is nice, but I'm far more interested in that Celica Rally car.

Nice to see new faces and new ideas being added to the model making side of things.

The Celica GT-4 Rally car is slated to come out this month - OFFICIALLY - unlike the ever shifting sands of release time on this Cruze.  The kit itself is pretty much the same as the existing Celica Rally car that BeeMax/Aoshima did last year as the Australian Rally Spec, but instead it will be modified to reflect the Monte Carlo Rally which required a new tarmac suspension (as opposed to a more "off road" gravel setup in the first kit) as well as a night lighting package for the front.

 

BeeMax has said this is a Trilogy of Celicas, so it remains to be seen what their 3rd and final variant will be in 2015.

Guess I missed the earlier Celica kit. I don't see Aoshima kits much, guess I need to start paying more attention to HLJ.
