The blog of ck-modelcars.de starts today with a note in its own right: Miniatures of the noble sports cars from McLaren are currently offered inexpensively in the shop. It is the ultimate chance to get models in scale 1:43 as well as in format 1:18 at a price as lovers of exclusive sports cars rarely find it. So cheap that it is totally worth to create a proper collection to the topic McLaren and to build up a "partial fleet"! McLaren Automotive, so the correct designation of the brand that was founded in 1989, emerged from the racing stable McLaren Racing as McLaren Cars. The first project was the F1 produced from 1993 to 1997 by designer Gordon Murray. After the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, the brand took off with the self-developed MP4 12C and in 2014 with the McLaren 650S.
And since then, the sports car manufacturer based in Woking, England, has been a fixture in this segment. It divides its model range into "series": Currently these are the Supercar, Super Series and Ultimate Series. It goes without saying that a brand that is so fixated on sports cars is a hit for the manufacturers of modelcars. TrueScale and Minichamps love these vehicles and reproduce them from high quality polyurethane cast resin as well as from diecast. Due to a clever calculation at the time of writing this article, some of the modelcars are available for a strong price. Clicking the link embedded below will take you to these miniatures. However, we would like to briefly present some highlights to you at this point. Let's start with TrueScale and the format 1:18.
An absolute eye catcher for example is the McLaren Speedtail in the color liquid crystal from model year 2019, which TrueScale offers under item number 23QA027CP. The models come to the collector in a white McLaren packaging, including a high quality showcase. The model year shows that it is not about discontinued models, but about modlecars of current vehicles. This applies also to the McLaren 600LT Spider 2019, which is available under item number 13QA717CP in chicane grey. Or in lime green (13QA716CP). The McLaren Senna from 2018 has been released by TrueScale under item numbers 180OEM15 in victory grey or 15QA097CP in mira orange; the McLaren GT 2019 under number 22QA247GP in copper metallic or burnished copper. With the 675LT Spider 2016, Minichamps goes a little further back in time. Have fun with this kind of time travel!
