Somehow the Spark Audi R18 Le Mans winners of 2013 and 2014 seem to be going for ridiculous prices. Anyone know where to buy these for near-normal prices?
I believe the LM winners are a recurring release from Spark once first produced. May take a little while but they will come around again.

Cheers

Remember that many of Sparks Audi's are also distributed through Audi dealers in different packaging. See if you can order them through your local Audi dealer.

For the past couple of weeks I've been trying to track down Spark's 2015 GTE Pro Class winning Corvette C7 with no luck, every where seems to be sold out at the moment.

If anyone knows where there is one for sale please get in touch.

Spark model number: S4662

Thanks
Stu

That's actually really reasonable compared to the handful I've found for sale recently!

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Hi guys,
I am trying to locate a Spark Jaguar E Type 2+2 in blue. They are on eBay but are outside of the EU and will cost around £25 extra in duty and PO handling costs. I have tried Miniboutik & Grand Prix models. Any other suggestions?
Cheers,
David
