Lots of nice models. Buckminster Fuller's car looks so tempting! ;)

Well, spark did announce the Bentley years ago. And it is only fair to expect them to build a better and cheaper one than Neo does... But this unfortunately is a LWB version.
And yes, the Buckminster Fuller car is a great model, do get it ;)

Just saw this news: P 959 Komfort. looks damn good!!!

They alreay issued the golden car so its great to see they are expanding the color range. Once they make a white or silver one (or maybe red with white sport wheels) I'll swap it with my MC diecast.

959 is one of my all-time faves, this would be a nice replacement for my old NZG.

I blame the Japanese site I copied it from. ;) On closer inspection it is on the base.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I wonder what the difference is between the B1051 Blue Bird Land Speed Record and the Bizarre BZ433 1935 Blue Bird Presentation version? They look exactly the same.

I have to say I'm absolutely gutted after buying one of the Bizarre record cars released in 2015 - It has no plexicover. All my other Bizarre and Spark record cars (which are 95% of all released) are displayed on my desk. But this one is still in its box as I can't display it. Thanks a lot Spark!

I'll be sure to hurry and buy the new record cars so I can store them in a box and never display them!

The Twizy F1 will most probably end up in my display case to accompany the Espace F1 :mrgreen:

BTW I am surprised they made the Diamond T Texaco tanker, just right this same year AutoCult made it, too!

Spark, if you are reading this, why not make some concept trucks as you are now into trucks too :mrgreen:

Funny how its taken them so long to produce the 2014 Le Mans Nissan Zeod RC.

I'm guessing there were some licencing hold ups. Note that the model is missing it's "Nissan" and "Nismo" logos and Bizarre have conveniently referred to this as the 'Garage 56" entry rather than calling the car by its propper name. It was pretty much a failure and I guess Nissan don't want to be reminded of the fact.

Good point about the missing branding, Ian. I am certainly willing to believe that theory. But did you see the Nissan stand at this years Le Mans? The Zeod was prominently displayed there. So why display it a Le Mans and then not allow a model to be manufactured. That is so strange. I don't know what to think of that.

Found a pic of the 2015 race display:

Additionally, Nissan's 2015 Le Mans racer was also a failure, but Spark is knocking out those products pretty fast.

Good pickup. I didn't know Nissan were still promoting the Zeod RC.

Another complication could be the ongoing court case between Panoz and Nissan over the design :
