Post by Jager »

For anyone who bought the IXO 'Almeras Freres' Berliet Transporter, IXO have just released a complimentary Citroen van to go with it.

Brought the whole set (Merc+Citroen+Peugeot 504 "Esso"+2 911SC's) from one shop last week. Already have the Berliet Stradair, and two Almeras rally Porsche 911's, I expect them to look stunning together. I'll get back with pictures when I get my hands on them.

That's a stolen image from the ABC Brianza catalogue, which is a bit awkward. That one was listed at 7-800 euros, I doubt the Altaya guys will make an order for that for loyal customers. I assume they're going to knock it off, but how come they allowed themselves to just pick an image from another registered manufacturer for their own publicity?

I've seen the Lancia transporter before, but figured with the cost of the models to get it and shipping, it would be more than buying the ABC model. Besides, I'd like mine in red. :)

My Almeras Frere Mercedes van arrived from France this week. It looks pretty good, but I think could possibly even look a little better with a bit of paint on some of the spare rims (ie black centres on the Fuchs):

It is the golden age for race support trucks. How wonderful that it has come about just as I have run out of room.

Just to help get you over the line Jerry, the van has a tow hook which is a perfect match for the trailer IXO released last year.
