I wonder how much these 1:8 racers will cost? If the price is reasonable, say €1000, then these would be terrific alternates to Amalgam 1:8 models that cost upward of €3000.

Just saw the price tag in the last photo, it IS €3000 on the Audi e-tron at least. They could have cornered the large scale market, but obviously only the wealthy collectors will get their 1:8 models, just like Amalgam.

I read on diecastsociety that the 1985 Lancia LC2 1000KM Spa is comming soon still not a release date yet.
Its not the lemans car and limited to 500 pieces but i think it will be a nice add for the collection

GPL have it listed as the le mans car but the diecast society post shows it's the '85 1000km spa version. I do actually like the later car on gold rims more though...

To be honest i was expecting the 1984 Le Mans car (Nannini/Wollek) which Spark has produced in 1/43 scale.It's far more beautiful compare to the '85 version from my point of view(i prefer the front headlights in '84 LM version a lot more).

But anyway,these are great news :drool5:

Dealers like CK or modelissimo will get some (they also got the 918 Prototype which was a Porsche Shop Only car) but they will sell it for arround 299€ which is 50€ more than from Porsche

OK cool - thanks.  My 918 Prototype came from CK but I wasn't sure if they always get these Porsche Dealer models.  Worked out around 220Euro after removal of VAT and discount so that seems to be the cheapest option for me.  Dealer here charges AUD$479 (330 Euro) for them :gaah: .

i really don't get Spark's pricing for road cars. They're no more detailed than thier regular race cars, but they charge a premium. In this case nearly twice as much.

I don't understand it either. I like the car a lot, but not for that price!

Press release
Spark have announced their range of 2014 Le Mans models in 1:18 scale and we're very happy to confirm that Mark Webber's Porsche 919 Hybrid will be produced in 1:18 scale. Along with Mark's Porsche Spark will also be producing the winning Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro plus the second place Audi and the third placed Toyota TS040.

In addition to the LMP1 cars we also have two cars from the LMP2 category and the ever popular GTE Category is well catered for with 1:18 scale models of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage , Porsche 911 RSR (991 Series - GTE-PRO) and GT3R (997 Series - GTE-AM), and the awesome Chevrolet Corvette C7.R.

Items are expected to begin arriving early next year.

Cool!!
I don't think we will see the Audi till around May / June though as they tend to come out shortly before the next Le Mans. I will be getting it though, and maybe the 919.

i will be getting most of the LM cars, especially the V8 Vantage. I would suspect most, if not all, get released around Le Mans next June, same as what happened with all the 2013 cars they released this year.

Thanks goodness for Spark, no one else caters for modern LM fans

I wonder if they'll make the Nissan ZEOD RC or if they'll make the chrome version of the Deltawing since they already released the black one in 1/18. I know they aren't super popular but they look cool.
