Z-Cars- 1:1 and 1:32 scales

I waved goodbye to the Lotus today but said hello to a 2006 Nissan 350Z Roadster GT.  Specification includes: 300 bhp 3.5 litre V6, azure blue metallic paintwork, charcoal leather seats, electric hood, electric heated seats, air conditioning, 18" Rays alloys, Brembo brakes, cruise control, 7 speaker Bose music system.  And yes, I am rather fond of it already ;-)

Nobody makes a 350Z Roadster as a slot car but several manufacturers make versions of the Coupe.  I wondered about attempting a conversion with a cheap Scalextric model but in the end went for a rally version from Powerslot, which has the same base blue paintwork as my car.

It arrived a few days before the real one.  Another nicely detailed model that drives very swiftly with moderate magnatraction so the back end gets out nicely on the corners.
