I've noticed that the latest Premium X releases (I'm thinking of the 1971 Mustang Mach I and the 1966 Mustang GT rallye car) are available on the MCW site ($10 dearer than earlier PX release), but not available on Premium X's own website. Wired.

Some more IXO rally announcements. Something's not right with the first one...

IXO is saying it's the 1971 RAC Rally car but car #2 in that rally was Blomqvist's Saab. Mäkinen's Escort in that rally was #16. I checked a few other years and Mäkinen did not drive the #2 RS1600 in the RAC rally in what I checked. Maybe some of our other rally fans can shed some light on the conflicting info?

That RS1600 that's in the picture is Roger Clarks Escort , reg number LVX 942J , which won the 1973 Scottish rally.

Makinen drove an RS1600 in the 1971 RAC which was reg number PVX 398K in the white and red Embassy livery , car number 16

In the 1972 RAC he drove an RS1600which was reg number PVX 400K in the white and red Embassy livery , car number 15

In the 1973 RAC he drove an RS1600 which was reg number 000 98M in the sky blue and white Milk livery, car number 13.

In the 1974 RAC he drove an RS1600 which was reg number GVX 883N in the brown (purple) Colibri livery , car number 1

Thanks for the detailed info. So it will be interesting to see if IXO changes the car or the description. :lol:

Whitebox will do an Alfa GTV in red. That will please a few people here, me included.

If only it were a good model. Which, unfortunately, it's not. So let's hope there will be a maxichamps of the good minichamps model.

More rally releases announced:

WHI R022 Peugeot 208 R2 #29 2013 Condroz Abbring
WHI R023 Hyundai i20 WRC #7 Rallye Germany '13 Neuv
WHI R024 VW Polo R, No.2, Rallye Sweden 2014
WHI R025 Peugeot 208 T16 R5, No.2, Rallye Acropolis
WHI R026 Ford Fiesta RS , No.5, WRC, Rallye Germany

Neuville I20 previously released as a part work but will be better quality obviously. Highlight here for me is the 208 T16 as its the Craig Breen Acropolis winner.

Interesting that all these models were shown on Ixo's stand at Nuremburg back in February and are being released as WB rather than full Ixo. Having said that no doubt they will be shown as RAM releases on Ixo's website as well! Still not sure what is going on with this company :?: :roll:

Thanks Douglas - that picture on that website is the test car rather than the actual race car, but hey, who knows what magic IXO/Premium X/Diecast Club/Altaya/Triple 9/WhiteBox will spring in 2016!!

I need this one. I was present at this rally and I admired the car and Craig Breen as well. Hope they release it soon.
