  1. Toyota Tacoma Pikes Peak Special 1998 The earlier Celica record driver the New Zealander Rod Millen built and drove this car. It is a 2.1 litre about 1000HP turbocharged, mid-engined AWD monster but only 885 Kg light. The plastic body of car not very much suggests a Toyota Tacoma. Millens time was 10 min 04.2 sec. The model is made by Hotwheels 3” in the regular line. I completed the car with a streamlined profile which isn`t originaly behind the cabin. I removed the originaly pad printed design and replaced and completed by decals. Enjoy the pictures.
  2. Toyota Celica Pikes Peak 1997 Toyota set a track record with a similar car in 1994 soon. The car of 1997 was powered by a 2.1 litre turbo engine upwards of 850 HP. The lay out is front engine with all wheel drive. Rod Millen arrived the checkered flag only a half second slower than his 1994 track record but more than 30 second befor the second best. The model is made by Hotwheels in Regular Line with rather good decoration. I corrected and completed the whole decoration and completed the details by painting inside. Enjoy the pictures.
  3. Peugeot 208 T16 GR Pikes Peak 2013 The car has a V6 bi-turbo mid-rear engine with 875 hp and with an acceleration to 100 kph in 1.8 sec. Peugeot had won the Pikes Peak with Ari Vatanen soon in 1988 and a year later with Robby Unser both driving a Peugeot 405 T16. The Peugeot 208 not only won with Sebastian Loeb but set a new record with a 8:13 run which is more than 1 ½ min quicker as the best up to the present time. The model made by Norev 1:64 scale. The little car was good decorated on the sides and on top. The front, the rear and the wing were empty. I completed the liver
  4. Audi Sport Quattro S1 Pikes Peak 1986 The Audi Quattro revolutionized rallying. It was the first rally car to successfully use all-wheel drive. But the car was relatively heavy and long. There were several parts made easier and a section of 320 mm was cut from the chassis behind the doors to shorten the car. The Sport Quattro was born. The S1 had in competiton trim for the Pikes Peak race 598 bhp from the turbocharged 2,110 cc engine. Walter Rhörl won on the 19.99 km long mountain track - which at that time was mainly covered with gravel - in a record time of 10 minutes and 47.85 seco
  5. I got it yesterday from post: Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, scale 1:24 made in China by Che Zhi The model is a toycar with pullback drive, light front and rear and motor sound with grinding brakes at the end . But for a toycar the details are very fine and rich. Even the tyres are fitted with correct direction of rotation. I can say negativ only that the breakediscs with caliper are rotating with the wheels together. And the mirrors are painted silver only.
  6. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport 2010 The car was introduced in 2010 and is a faster, more powerful – 1200 PS - version of the earlier Bugatti Veyron 16.4. The Super Sport has been driven as fast as 431.072 km/h and making it the fastest production road car in the world at the time of its introduction. The production Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport World Record Edition 2010 was limited to five units and sold out within just 45 minutes during the IAA in Frankfurt in 2007. Oh yes – the price was approx. 1.6m GBP. The model is produced by an anonym manufacturer in China. The car is
  7. Jensen Interceptor FF Mk III 1971 The Interceptor was a steel bodied car against the earlier glas fiber reinforced plastic bodies. The body is designed by Carrozzeria Touring of Italy and was buit by Vignale in Italy. Later the production went to England and some mofications were made on body design. The engine is a V8 7.2-litre 440ci from the Chrysler production and driving the rear wheels. There was only 15 Mark III produced. The model is a Corgi Rockets 3” size. Originaly was the car too high on wheels. I must make a new section of base with the suspension in proper height for t
  8. Ferrari 250 LM 1964 The 250 Le Mans was designed by Scaglietti and was the first mid-engined car of Ferrari. The car looked like a racecar but was intended for a road-going GT. As Enzo Ferrari couldn`t agree with the FIA about the starting in GT category without to produce all of the 100 GT-s the car raced first in Le Mans in 1965 and won. But the cars of different teams were not competitive with the latest factory prototypes in the following years. The model is made by BBurago in 1:24 scale. The car has everyting to open but was blank red and I found it dull. So I made the Scu
  9. Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa 1958 The 250 Testa Rossa (TR) prototype from 1957 was rebodied by Scaglietti and Chiti with a spectacular design for the 1958 season. The car has a cut-away nose reminiscent of a Formula 1 car. There are deep channels between nose and headlamps for take air to cool better the front brakes. The headlamps are under a streamlined plexi cover in front of the pontoon-like fenders. The lower body was recessed inwards behind the front wheels in order to vent heat from the brakes and exhaust. The cars won countless races and championships. In turn this design generated gr
  10. Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider 1956 The Gulietta Spider is a Pininfarina design and the Serie 1 was built at Pininfarina too. Basically the same car remained in production for almost three decades with technical and design modifications named Guilia Spider. The model is made by Lone Star with juwel headlights, suspension, opening doors, lid and trunk in about 1:64 scale. It was rather play worn so I gave a full repaint and detailing. Enjoy the pictures.
  11. Chrysler ME 4-12 Concept 2004 Chrysler built this car as a mid-engine, four turbo, twelve cylinder concept but in fact it was a prototype which should go in production in two years with 300 car/year. The engine was a Mercedes V12 and the rest is by Chrysler. The performance was very high even better as of the Mercedes V12 cars. The project was cancelled, reportedly as an embarrassment to Mercedes. The model is made by Maisto in 1:24. The detailing is good , doors and hood are to open. The interieur could be made by some detail paint much better. The engine compartment is the usuall
  12. Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar 1986 Porsche started again with 3 racecars in the Paris-Algiers-Dakar Rally 1986. As the cars in 1985 were not successful now they sported a more sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and a 2.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 similar to the 959 road-car. The engine gave „only” 400 horsepower because of the unavailability of high-octane fuel along the desert race course. They finished the race on first, second and sixth place. It was enought for Porsche and the 959s never started again on a rally. But one of the unsuccessful 959 from 1985 was sold for nearly $6 milli
  13. Porsche 914 Safari There was never built a Safari but Porsche built 16 examples of 914/6 GT in 1970 by the racing department. One of these arrived good race results and won some championships in the 70-es and 80-es. The car was sold slightly below 1.0 million $ on an auction in 2020. Hotwheels liveried the car with a similar decoration as this car. Other side they made great wheels, a roof rack and an open engine compartment with additional bracing, etc. I completed the liverie and detiled engine compartment, roof rack, the head and rear lights and the interieur. Enjoy
  14. Lamborghini Centenario 2016 The Lamborghini Centenario technicaly based on the Aventador and built in a limited series. It commemorates the 100th birthday of the company's founder Ferrucio Lamborghini . The Centenario is the first car of Lamborghini with 4 wheel-steering for added maneuverability at low speed, in a city driving, and improved stability at high speed. This system was further developed in the Aventador SVJ. The Lamborghini Centenario model is made by Jada 1:24 scale in the Transformers Line. The model is really fine, I like the darkgrey metalic color, the inside is go
