All of this week's new arrivals, re-stocks & sale items are detailed in the FSW Weekly #24/2021 PDF here!

 

A quiet week for the number of brands making deliveries but that hasn't stopped the new model news flow which is detailed in the daily "This Week's Headlines" below. Well worth checking and putting in pre-orders before it is too late.  We have new releases from just four ranges this week but in two of those there is a significant number of subjects to choose from. We’ll start though with a range we’ve not had a new release from for a while - Carbone, whose latest exquisite hand built for discerning collectors of inter-war road cars is this beautiful 1933 Horch open tourer.

Horch 750 Typ8 1933 Offener Tourenwagen 1933 Blue - Reference CAR43148

Datsun 240Z 10th Laguna Seca 1980 #49 Anderson - Reference ARE1102M

 

Next up Arena. A couple of weeks ago it sent through a typically large list of new releases due and the first delivery took no time at all in arriving. Regular themes in Valerio’s range are the Lancia Stratos and Porsche rally cars and IMSA 935s and he doesn’t disappoint on this front. Going off on a slight tangent from the stock class Carrera Panaerica entries in recent deliveries is a Chrysler Saratoga driven on the Mille Miglia by Paul Frere, not the most obvious choice of weapon for the event. There are also European and IMSA Ferraris, a selection of rally support vans and for Trans-Am fans, colourful Corvette and Datsun 240Z subjects.

 

KK Scale has added to is previous 1:18 Ferrari Daytona diecast release by adding the Series 2 version in both Coupe and Spider versions.  Last week we said that there was more coming from Spark and we received two consignments in three days. The first included an unusual hillclimb Lotus 21 for Jim Clark along with other classic Arrows & Cooper Formula 1s, Monte Carlo rally Alpines, Porsche and Alfa Romeo classic Le Mans entries.  Shipment two also included classic Formula 1 Lotus subjects but the rest are unashamedly modern with George Russell’s Mercedes from Sakhir last year, Ogier’s Rally Monza and championship winning Toyota and winners of the three most important 24 Hour races in Europe (we’re not talking about Citroen C1s this time!) from Spa, Nurburgring and, of course, Le Mans.

If you missed it, here is the previous edition of FSW Weekly, the current Future Production listings, Sale Department and our Rarities Department too.

On the subject of sports prototypes,  Alpine took an early lead in the Algarve 8 Hours but at the finish, Toyota were back at the top of the time sheets. Formula 1 refugee Marcus Ericsson won the first of the IndyCar races in Detroit, O’Ward taking the second and this weekend Kevin Magnussen gets his first taste at Road America, having won the Detroit IMSA race. The BTCC saw three different winners in three marques at Snetterton, Hyundai joining BMW and Honda. This weekend’s main focus will be the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard, there's the IndyCars previously mentioned, Formula E from Mexico, the first round of the new GT3 DTM, Aussie Supercars in Darwin plus NASCAR, F3, TCR, GT Open and more.
