1:18 #63 1989 SAUBER C9. LE MANS
An early contender for the most exciting model of 2018 is Norev’s 1:18 replica of the 1989 Le Mans winning Sauber Mercedes C9. It was driven by Jochen Mass, Manuel Reuter and Stanley Dickens.
Although this car was replicated many years ago in 1:18, not many were prepared to remortgage their houses to part with the hundreds of pounds then being asked for Exoto’s all singing, all dancing example.
By contrast, the retail price of Norev’s version is a mere £79.99, which today represents a level of value for money bordering on the unimaginable! Who are we to complain though; bring it on Norev, more of the same please!
