Avant Slot Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X - Gulf and Repsol liveries
#1

   

Avant Slot 50806 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X 'Gulf' Mitsubishi Ralliart Finland #49 Rally Finland 2010 - Juha Salo / Jarkko Kalliolepo
Avant Slot 50807 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X Mitsubishi Repsol #1 Rally Comunidad de Madrid RACE 2016 - Cristian García / Rebeca Liso

Avant Slot have two new liveries on their lovely Group-N Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X due in the UK next week - only 60 units of each will be available here. The Gulf and Repsol liveries are bound to popular, but both represent national championship-winning drivers.

       

The #49 'Gulf' car is one of the Mitsubishi Ralliart Finland entries in the 2010 Rally Finland, driven by Juha Salo. Salo and and co-driver Jarkko Kalliolepo crashed out of the rally on stage seven, but the Gulf colours looked fabulous...

   

   

Salo won the 2010 Finnish Rally Championship with the Evo X, his fifth national championship in a Lancer. Between 1996 and 2016, Salo won ten Finnish rally championships and made eleven appearances at Rally Finland...

       

The Avant Slot car will look great on any slot car track...

   



       

The second car is a model of the Repsol-sponsored Evo X that took Cristian García and Rebeca Liso to victory at the 2016 Madrid Rally and clinched that year's Spanish Asphalt Rally Championship for the Mitsubishi pair...

       

The #1 Repsol Evo X took seven victories from ten races in 2016, heralding the end of the Porsche 997 era.

       

The Avant Slot model is sensational - definitely my favourite of the pair...

       

Here's some video of the car in action - plus an interview with Cristian García for Spanish-speakers...




And here's the model on the Avant Slot track...

   

Underneath both cars is the previously-updated Avant Slot Evo X chassis...

   

It features pulley-driven all-wheel-drive and a new 'hard' motor pod.

Both cars are expected in the UK next week - only 60 unit each. RRP is £81.99. MRE and Pendles have the cars available on pre-order for £69.69 (club price) and £74.95 respectively.

A big thanks to Steve at Staffs Slot Cars UK for sending us the pictures and release details.
