C2885 Peugeot 307 WRC Team Expert H.Solberg
The Peugeot 307 WRC was designed to replace the triple title winning 206 WRC for the 2004 season. The car features new engine, suspension and gear box with power of around 300bhp at an engine speed of 5250rpm. Despite early teething problems the 307 achieved its first victory with Marcus Gronholm driving car no.5 in Finland. Peugeot went on to claim 4th place in the 2004 Manufacturer’s Championship. The version modelled is the Peugeot 307 Exide/Team Expert sponsored orange livery No.8 car driven by Norwegian Henning Solberg.
The Scalextric car
Exclusively produced by Scalextric as a front mounted sidewinder motor, four-wheel drive chassis.
Fitted with lights front and rear. Ideal to race against all of the Rally cars. This car has excellent road handling characteristics.
Superior detail in the crispness of the body lines and of the livery decoration. The front mounted motor provides weight over the guide blade thereby helping the blade to stay in the slot. This makes the car very satisfying to rally drive through corners as the back of the car can slide out but the car will not easily de-slot. The front driven wheels are always pulling the rear wheels back in to line from a skid. The 4-wheel drive rubber belt provides quiet and smooth power, a far more pleasing option than other designs.
Front mounted, sidewinder motor driving front axle with drive belt driving rear axle.
4-wheel drive – Sprung guide blade – Adjustable magnatraction positions –
Front & Rear lights – Quick change braid plate.
