The UK shop MRE - posted some photos in their latest update - and Facebook has some photos as well
They are fine looking cars.

I have raced the pre-production models of these and I must say they are a blast to race.

Would be a great thing if those that already have these would take photos and make a full report here.

I am in, I hope they are sold to the local shops and don't come from just one place...

I don't have any of these cars. I was able to participate in a 24 hour race last year that showcased these cars.

I imagine the US distributor will want to sell as many of these as they can - they are in partnership with BRM so its in there interest to get them out there. I am guessing BRM will market them in Europe and rest of the world. They look great - whilst I have a lot of 1/32 cars I prefer the 1/24 - I think that if 1/24 were as readily available (and as inexpensive LOL) as 1/32 I would buy lots more - there is something extra special racing a big car around the track. I have been impressed with the quality and drivability of the 3 BRM chassis car that I have so I expect that these will run just as well. Looking forward to picking up a couple or 3 :)

Hard to tell but does the #9 Donohue Camaro have a vinyl roof? I mean, I hope so.

Pendles in the UK offering pre-orderd @ 120.00 pounds ($160 +/-). Looks nice, too rich for me.

It looks like the little chrome strip trim for a vinyl roof. Let's see if they noticed the oddity of a vinyl roof that matched the color of the car. Nearly all of them were either white or black on GM cars. Mopar had matching colors to the paint. Our 1969 Plymouth Fury III had a bronze roof to match the Turbine bronze paint. I still remember my father stylin' in that car. Of course, I wrecked it. I drove perfectly for over 2 years without a scratch in a city known for bad wreckless drivers, and the first time I drove Dad's car, I wrecked it.

Anyway, here's the actual car:
