DEL BOY AND BATMAN JOIN FORCES WITH SCALEXTRIC

Bat-Del and Rob-neyNow, out of curiosity, do you know what the classic British sitcom, 'Only Fools and Horses', and the dynamic duo, Batman and Robin, both have in common? Aside from the fact that they were amalgamated into the following scene first broadcast by the BBC on the 25th of December, 1996!







Well, to answer this question, I would like to draw your attention to a selection of amazing model cars that have been designed and packaged by Scalextric UK. The first model car was based on the classic 1966 version of the Batmobile (which was made famous through its numerous appearances on the sixties 'Batman' television show), while the other two models were based on the Reliant Regal and the Ford Capri Mk III (which likewise hit it big via their appearances on the BBC sitcom, 'Only Fools and Horses'). Now for a quick rundown, here, have a look at this...


The 1966 Version of the Batmobile - 1
Batmobile from the 1966 TV Series (Price: £45.99)

Product Information: This Scalextric slot car was modeled after the classic 1966 version of the Batmobile driven by the Caped Crusader on his vintage television show.

  • Dimensions: ‎25.4x15.24x10.16cm / Weight: 220 grams / Scale: 1:32

The 1966 Version of the Batmobile - 2


Trivia: The Batmobile from the 1966 live-action TV show was originally designed by the famous Hollywood customizer, George Barris, who managed to bring this vigilant vehicle to life by adapting a concept car developed by Ford. The car was a 1955 Lincoln Futura, and according to George, he purchased it for just one dollar.

Pros and Cons:
  • Pros: It's the Batmobile - It looks fantastic - And it flows around the track very well
  • Cons: It isn't the real Batmobile - Robin isn't included - And it can't save me from the Joker 




The Only Fools And Horses Twin Pack - 1
Only Fools and Horses Twin Pack (Price: £85.99)

Product Information: This twin pack contains two cars based on the 'old bangers' Del Boy owned during his time on the popular TV show, 'Only Fools and Horses'. Namely, his Reliant Regal and Ford Capri Mk III, which have been nicely reproduced by the team at Scalextric.

  • Dimensions: ‎28.5x8x21.5cm / Weight: 700 grams / Scale: 1:32
  • Licensed: Yes / Colours: Yellow and Green / Decal Sheet Included: No
  • Compatible with Spark Plug: No / Digital Plug Installed: No
  • Magnatraction: Yes / Xenon Effect Lights: Yes / Rear Lights: Yes
  • Added extras: The Reliant Regal comes with a pair of complementary fluffy dice


The Only Fools And Horses Twin Pack - 2


Trivia: Nobody is quite sure how Del Boy got his hands on the now-infamous three-wheeled Reliant Regal, although it was once suggested by his mate, Boycie, that Del had to sell his old Vespa so he could buy it 'on the cheap'.

Pros and Cons:
  • Pros: No insurance required - No petrol is required - And neither car comes from North London
  • Cons: It costs money - It doesn't smell of fish and chips - And no plonkers are included

You also might like to know that each vehicle comes with a robust outer frame and has been crafted to a high standard. But more importantly, they're fun to play with and a real treat for the eyes! Now for further information, please feel free to check out the official Scalextric Website, Facebook, and Twitter pages. Or better yet, why not pick up one of these models via Amazon (click here for the Batmobile and here for the Reliant Regal and Ford Capri Mk III)!
