Next introduction, apart from a steady stream of modern and classic rally cars, is the 1980s Ford Granada mk.2 Estate car in metallic grey. While a nice model, I wish they'd picked a different colour.

Will the MK II Granada Turnier be an all-new casting? The only Mk II wagon that I can think of is the Neo version. I imagine the over time several versions will be issued.

Looks like a new casting to me, but PCT's stock continues to amaze me. They've also announced a Bastos rally support version.

Apparently the Escort is now available in a new colour

The dark blue of the PW version is a familiar colour on the Escort, this one not so much. It is attractive though.

I agree about the color of this retail version.

Next up is a hobby release of the PW Sierra XR4i in dark metallic blue and this facelifted mk.3 Escort which will be a welcome addition, even though it doesn't seem entirely correct to me.

Interesting. This model first appeared in the Argentine part-work series.

That Escort is tempting model indeed, most likely ends up in my collection at some point :)

Uh-oh...

Upcoming Ixo releases: Fiat 242 van 'Martini rally team' and several Lancia Delta S4 Martini rally cars. Guess which rally car's still missing from my collection? :?

Also several Escort mk.3 rally cars that look quite tasty.

I just saw that IXO has released a new Shelby Mustang GT. It is a 1965 model with the unique to 1966 Hertz black and gold color scheme -- so close but so far. Frustrating because IXO does have a proper 1966 body in their part-work back catalog. I wish that they would use their 1965 fastback body to to a nice 1965 Mustang GT.

I also see that IXO is going to issue a beautiful blue on black version of the European spec 1984 Sierra XR4i. I want that one.

It doesn't, but my Ixo PW does. I think this is some photo mock-up.

I would like a blue XR4i as a replacement for my black one, and the Granada looks great.

Hi Julio,

I too thought of you too with this model. However, didn't you spend time in Germany after this was released? Didn't an you and associate have a hand in the Mondeo? Pardon me if I'm wrong about this?

Either way, that IXO Sierra does look splendid! Would like to add this on the right 'terms' :P

Thanks for thinking of me, guys!

I worked on the Mondeo! However, I’ve always liked the Sierra and I feel that it was a much cooler design than that of the Mondeo! :?

A transporter that a few forum members might like (especially if its EUR50 as indicated)

Unfortunately I have nothing in my collection to put with this, but I must say I'm happy to see IXO producing so many transporters, especially as Spark seems to have abandoned this segment.
