I know that the Senna and Lauda cars and the DTM racers are the poster boys of AUTOart’s 190 range, but what about these three? I’d love one of these - heavily weathered and caked in brake dust - in 1:18. Significant 190s, yet over looked I think.

Good stuff!
The 190E was also used in production saloon racing, rallycross and rallying.

Although unless AUTOart take a leaf out of the Minichamps book I can't see it happening.
Seal everything, simplify the chassis and use solid plastic grills. :bawling:

i love the Nardo 190s :-) I suspect that they're a part of the car's history that few folks know about. Maybe we will see them in diecast, but i won;t hold my breath :-)

I always wanted the 190E Sonax DTM car, along with the R129 final edition that never came :bawling:  and other classic racing porsches & BMW. I think is hard to see that happening man. Among other announces, I will love to hear that a new batch of E28 M5 are coming in fully diecast openable and detailed version. As the one I pass and really regret. Autoart business is now focused in what's more popular; hypercars, some JDM and that crap of LB cars.

Me too!
It's years I'm waiting for other DTM 190s!

I was hoping to see the 1986 ETCC cars, or this 1988 DTM car in particular.
Sometimes a car looks best in the right colour scheme.
