“ Brand: Hornby „
McLaren cars have been represented in the Scalextric range for nearly 40 years from the M4A of 1969 through M9A, M23 (James Hunt) and then through the highly successful MP4 line from the 1990's to now with the introduction to the Scalextric range of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes race car driven by World Champion Fernando Alonso and sensational newcomer, Lewis Hamilton. As at July '07, with the British Grand Prix having just been run, McLaren lead the constructor's points table and their drivers, Hamilton and Alonso, lead the driver's championship. After 9 races, Hamilton has not missed a place on the podium and has two F1 wins to his name. A truly remarkable record for a rookie driver in his first year of F1! The first ever slot car release of this livery and with exclusive packaging rights to show the driver images means that this Scalextric slot car carries a big advantage over any competitor. Particular attention was made to the special chrome finish on the body which was approved by McLaren. The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is also one of the first cars to benefit from our brand new car packaging case. The new flip-top clear case shows the car to its best advantage on its angled plinth. The display case is ideal for displaying the car. Spare braid plates are attached to the underside of the display case. The case stacks neatly and safely so that columns and rows of cases make a neat and clear display on the shelf.
