Unfortunately not Vangelis. I really don't know why there are so few Acropoplis winners. :(

Don't think it would be that easy to do the 2012 winner because Citroen ran different roof liveries for each rally, but the 2013 polo wrc should be straightforward - buy a latvala car from another rally and use Colorado decals who do an set covering the acropolis rally to change the rally plates on the doors, bonnet and boot - not a difficult conversion at all.

Is it just for France? Can we find any other info? I am interested but I haven't spoken French for a long time and I can't understand much. Any help from French speakers here?

The subscription page does allow you to specify countries other than France. I just stumbled through it using Google Translate.

Its depressingly quiet on the model release front, but found this Luso Toys Fiat 131 1980 Monte Carlo model. I believe looking at my records that this is reference K-15:

Hi Douglas - I'm guessing you are removing the HPI references as HPI went bankrupt before building these, but interested to know why you have removed the IXO Saab 96 1976 Swedish Rally winner reference? I know that wasn't in the 1H 2014 catalogue, but they had a mock up of the model at the german toy fair earlier this year?

Isn't IXO RAM549 the Portugal Rally winner?

Douglas - you may need to track back and recheck the Passione Rally reference numbers - looks like some of the more recent ones have changed from the original release indications.

That's exactly why I finally removed the HPI references. As for the Saab - oops. Thanks for keeping me honest here. It was a mistake in my master spreadsheet and it has been re-added to the reference.

Yes. Yes, it is. I don't know how I got that one wrong. I even already had it listed as Portugal and I still added it as Finland. Getting old, I guess. :lol: :(

Thanks! Yes, there have been some updates. Most noticeably the images are now too small to see the rally details. :(

Another good catch. I can't find a catalog number on it but I did find a few Japanese sites with this model - a lot of blogs and this one that has it for sale: http://www.minicar-tmt.com/product/4176.
