Don't think it complies with his vision of 4 open wheels as the epitome of design :lol:

Given the highlighting on Playlife's original post I would suggest it is the idea of going to Nuremberg (sp) and not visiting the spark stand, bit like going to a Motor Show and not visiting the Ital Design stand.

I got this confirmed by 2 dealers today:

Spark is increasing prices on their models starting from march 1st.
A 2 to 3 € increase for a 1:43 and also an increase in 1:18 models.

This is all the info i have at the moment.
I will look further in to this and keep you guys posted.

Ironic when we in Britain are told that inflation is the lowest it's been for ages and how energy prices are falling..... Not much sign of any of that in model manufacturer price lists.

They're mostly claiming an increase in labour costs. Maybe in a couple of years we'll start seeing models 'made in Europe' again.

Unlikely. They'll move production to India or another place.

Maybe it's just the bad picture but Spark didn't capture the shape right as the actual concept looks pretty good.
