Scalextric launches McLaren supercar slot car
McLaren 720s model slot car announced as supercar is unveiled at Geneva International Motor Show 2017
Scalextric will be the first manufacturer to produce a slot car version of the new McLaren 720S, revealed officially to the public this week at the Geneva International Motor Show.
The slot car model has been developed by British brand Scalextric under strict conditions for several months, allowing the slot version to be announced simultaneously with the McLaren supercar.
Ricky Black, Head of Brand for Scalextric said: “Our relationship with McLaren dates back to the 1960’s when Scalextric was first established, and we produced their first McLaren M4A as a slot car. As McLaren Automotive established, we have continued our license arrangement with them, first with the McLaren 12C and then the iconic McLaren P1. Scalextric is now extremely excited to be announcing the first slot car model of the McLaren 720S.”
The McLaren 720S is going to be on the wish-list for car enthusiasts all over the world, but for those for whom the supercar is outside their budget, the next best thing is undoubtedly taking it for a spin on a Scalextric track.
The Scalextric McLaren 720S is available to pre-order worldwide at www.scalextric.com from today (Friday 10 March), or from Scalextric stockists, with delivery expected in late 2017. The model will be available in the two new McLaren launch colours - Glacier White and Azores Orange with further products to launch in 2018.
