Well after watching the Bathurst 12 hour race;

race video here

I wonder if we'll get a model of a 2020 racing Bentley?

Luciano,
I heard that Platz is coming out with a Porsche 911 R 2019 GT3 which the 2020 looks identical to. NuNu also has listed the Audi R8 LMS GT3 car, but I haven't seen anything about a Bentley current or past years.

It would be a great looking addition to the display cabinet, but that paint job




Cheers, D

D,
Those schemes are getting more and more like body painting/art then ever before. Only BMW GT3 teams seem to stay on the conservative side. Personally, I don't care for any of them. And haven't ordered any models that have decals to reproduce those schemes. Just not my cup of tea.

Even the most extensive schemes are being produced by AM Asian Decal Companies. Unfortunately, they get applied like a full body wrap.

Given the option, I'd much rather go back to the days of pre-sponsorship colors. I still remember after seeing Lotus after Lotus in it's BRG/Yellow stripe change for the 1968 season wearing that gaudy Red/Gold scheme. Talk about sticker shock.
