Fancy something a bit more vintage for your slot car racing collection? Take a look at these stunning creations from Spanish start-up manufacturer Velasor.
The firm aims to take slot car modelling to a new level, and its first offerings are more than a bit special. The chosen subject is the 1922 Austro-Daimler ‘Sascha’, which was one of the first cars designed by Ferdinand Porsche when he was still working for Daimler. The intricately scaled models are made from over 200 pieces, with materials ranging from wood and metal to leather. The four cars entered for the 1922 Targa Florio are depicted with the ‘four aces’ at the wheel – Alexander Kolowrat, Lambert Pocher, Fritz Kulm and Alfred Neubauer, and each comes complete with a co-driver in various stages of bracing themselves. They come complete with a wooden plinth and presentation box. Race, or crash, them at your peril…
€440 (individual), €1750 (Four Aces Legendary box set), velasor.com.
