I asked a guy I know at the Lexus dealer in my town, he got in touch with Lexus Switzerland but they cannot order them apparently. Anyone willing to help from the U.S. would be much appreciated :occasion14:

I'm willing to help, just nervous shipping to Switzerland will ruin the deal for you. PM me your address and I can get a shipping quote online

It seems that they've re-released the 1968 Le Mans winning car (probably because prices went crazy on them)

Even though I'm not a fan of resins, I'm usually impressed by the looks of Spark's 1/18th releases, but that '67 Gulf Ford GT looks awful toy-like compared to the '68 version. Is that a pre-production model? The wheels and the headlight covers just look...wrong. Maybe that dark blue doesn't accentuate the car's features as well as the later powder blue Gulf primary color.

At first glance, I actually thought it was a 1/43, But then again, It might be a picture of a 43, I've seen lots of sellers post pictures of 43's when they are advertising 18's.

Thats what surprised me, LB emailed me because I had it on pre-order, More so just out of curiosity for when they would have them in stock, Yet when I checked recently, Low and behold... None to be found  :dunno:

Those look awesome as always. I have no doubt they'll release the 2018 911s, and I suspect it is just the angle on those tail pipes. They look impressively metallic too.

I'm waiting on CK or Modelissimo to get in the #90 Aston and the #91 RSR. Those are the only two from Spark I'll be picking up this year
.

I was gutted when Spark announced that they were canceling the Covette art car from last year, I read the artist doesn't want his work reproduced on a model. A shame as that would have been a popular release and a great looking model.
