MAN Renntransporter "Porsche", 1:18

Opel Blitz racing transporter "Porsche" 1:18

The Opel Blitz double-cab articulated truck of the third post-war generation (1960 to 1965) was a further development of the Opel Blitz built between 1952 and 1960, and was designed for a payload of 1.9 tons. Under the much shorter and sloping bonnet
you could expect to find the 70 bhp, 2.6 liter, six-cylinder petrol engine of the Opel Kapitän.

The 'sloping bonnet' Blitz was available in various shapes and sizes, including a pick-up and box van version and a minibus. Furthermore, it was used as a truck tractor unit along with various special superstructures. The Opel Blitz was therefore also used in the world of motor racing to transport cars. Even though it was not suitable for transporting really heavy objects, it was ideal for some lighter-weight racing cars. As a result, the Porsche Racing Team from Stuttgart transformed an Opel Blitz articulated truck into a racing transporter for the safe transportation of three cars at the start of the sixties.

Like all the other service vehicles of the Porsche Racing Team at that time, the Opel Blitz racing transporter was painted in the attractive guards red livery.

Racing cars such as the Porsche 718, the Porsche 904 GTS and the Porsche 906 Carrera were thus transported from the factory in Stuttgart to legendary circuits like Targa Florio in Sicily, Le Mans in France, the renowned Hockenheimring and the Nürburgring.

This famed Opel Blitz 'Porsche' racing transporter is now available from Schuco as a miniature model on a scale of 1:18 in the PRO.R line. This series has become established as a small series model line made of resin that stands for extraordinary and highly sophisticated models. Thanks to this top quality model-making material, it is possible to create extremely rare and exotic model vehicles in perfect quality and with never-before-seen precision.

Set "Edition 70 Jahre Porsche" racing transporter with Porsche 908 short and long tail, 1:43

In the early days of motor sport, racing cars were still transported under their own steam to races in Le Mans and Monza or to the Targa Florio or the Mille Miglia. However, the increasing professionalism of motor sport in the 1950s and the growing amount of equipment which was needed led the racing teams of the day to start using transport vehicles.

In the mid-60s, Porsche came up with the idea for two transport vehicles that were specially designed to meet the requirements of motor sport and able to transport the additionally required engines, gearboxes and chassis parts.

The technical basis for the new Porsche racing transporter was the Mercedes-Benz O317 underfloor-engine bus, produced between 1957 and 1972. Its self-supporting design meant it was ideal for the complex conversion by the Stuttgart-based company Robert Schenk.

The Porsche engineers presented their newly developed 3-litre, eightcylinder race car, the Porsche 908, in October 1967. The model was available as a short and long-tail version. The short-tail 908 had a movable rear flap and an additional spoiler at the front, the long-tail 908 was fitted with a longer tail section, larger tail fins and a movable traverse wing. The decision on which version to use was based on the properties and condition of the individual race tracks.

To mark ‘70 Years of Porsche’, Schuco presents the Mercedes-Benz O 317 racing transporter of the Porsche factory race team as an exclusive miniature in a 1:43 set that also includes metal models of a Porsche 908 short-tail and a Porsche 908 long-tail. The model of the racing transporter is very appealing due to a number of lovingly created details and is just as impressive as the original. Opening the rear door allows you to slide out the ramps to load the racing cars on to the racing transporter, just like the real thing. The truck is able to hold two racing cars. This jubilee edition is limited to just 700 models and comes in a wooden presentation box.

VW T3 "Joker" Campingbus, 1:18

The Volkswagen T3 Transporter, which was unveiled in 1979, set new standards for recreational and family activities. In contrast to the first two generations of the VW Transporter, the very squarish and matterof-fact shape of the T3 was far from charming for many customers. Nonetheless, its powerful boxer engine, greater comfort and the large amount of available space ensured the Volkswagen T3 soon became a firm favourite with customers. Manufactured between 1979 and 1992 as a bus, box van and flat-bed truck, it offered lots of opportunities to stamp your personal mark on the vehicle. Due to the great success of the VW T2 Westfalia camper van, the T3 was also designed as a Westfalia.

During its production period, there were a number of camping variants such as the ‘Joker’ basic model and the slightly more elaborately equipped ‘Club Joker’. In later years, the ‘Joker’ model was also marketed under the name ‘California’. Volkswagen subsequently
launched the ‘Atlantic’, which was a more luxurious mobile home. Today, the original T3 ‘Joker’, ‘Club Joker’, ‘California’ and ‘Atlantic’ versions are an integral part of the Vdub scene and fetch high prices among collectors and fans.

Schuco presents the VW T3a ‘Joker’ Westfalia with high roof as a top quality 1:18 scale metal model. The model is very appealing due to a number of lovingly created details. For instance, removing the engine cover hidden behind the tailgate provides a clear view of the highly detailed miniature engine. Just as perfect is the complete interior of the camper van that can be marvelled at through the side window and the opening and closing side door.

Due to its true-to-life detail and mechanical functions, such as functioning steering, prototypical suspension, perfectly reproduced folding roof and replica sliding door, the Volkswagen T3 ‘Joker’ from the Schuco Edition 1:18 is a top quality and highly sought-after collectible full of automotive emotion and charm.
