    That Ferrari is sweet Dave. And I am sure someone will find a way to add those cool nose lights. Any shots of the car from all angles? We missed you out at Area 51 this year btw.

      These are the official photos. I won't have the Ferrari because it's only in the set and I don't get any samples of "set only" cars to take photos of since... well.. they're only in the set

              Why set only

              Dave,

              It is all well and good to make a special car to induce new racers, but what about us old timers that have had sets for years and do not need any more track and bits.

              Why not also release in general the "special car", like in this set and the 1/24 Porsche 917, 6 months or a year later so the LOYAL Carrera people can have a shot at them, and not pay "robber" prices to get one from broken sets?

                Because there would be no point to making it only in a set. I personally don't like the idea of set only cars but it's something that has always been done in the toy industry.

                  I hear you but it sucks for those of us that have permenant layouts and dont need the track pieces.

                    Bill I noticed the just the pair of cars on German eBay already. Price wasn't outrageous if I recall but I don't remember the price.

                      Too bad the Corvette was not made to be the "#4" Team car then we could have 2 new set cars!
