I really don't understand the die cast car business. Why would they not make a 1/18th of the 2015-17 Shelby 350/350R???. I see all these requests for odd ball cars, but not one for what would be a very popular model .

GT spirit have just released a sealed resin GT350-R in white with black stripes. I know it's a sealed resin model, but it does look good.

If you want a traditional 'all opening' diecast, it will need time to get accuracy right, and operating features to be close tolerance. And if you don't like dog legs, expect it to be at the higher end of the price market. My GT Spirit version cost me €100 inc shipping. If Norev were to do one in the same price bracket and it was around the same quality as their recent best efforts I would be at the head of the queue......
