With humble apologies to Mattel's Hot Wheels, once you've seen these luxury slot car raceways, it's hard not to move them to the top of any slot-car hobbiest's wish list.
Slot Mods creates museum quality hand-crafted custom and replica raceway slot car tracks (of some of the world's most famous raceways) for serious slot car racing enthusiasts. Whether you're a NASCAR, Formula One or Vintage Car racing fan, these miniature scaled functioning raceways will blow you away.
From the pole position to the pit-stop, incredible detailing and beautiful craftsmanship make these perfect for commercial applications, showrooms or simply the ultimate man cave. Founded by David Beattie, the creations start at $15,000 and can go as high as $75,000.
A video of one of their custom slot car raceways in action:
Born from their passion of vintage racing, Slot Mods is now offering limited-edition replicas of cars from one of the greatest eras of racing inside which is a slot car raceway.
Their first offering: the RCR 917 that Vic Elford and Gerald Larrousse drove to victory at the 1971 12 Hours of Sebring. With just a push of a button, the body opens to reveal the ultimate slot car racing experience!
The RCR 917 is a faithful reproduction with fiberglass body panels true to its original shape. Specifications: rolling aluminum 3-piece original-style center lock wheels, race-worn tires, working headlights and taillights, and inside…a beautiful 1/32 scale wooden slot car raceway, featuring handcrafted, period-correct signs, banners, aluminum Armco railing, trees and structures.
But they couldn’t stop there. Also available to test your endurance, they’re offering the RCR GT40, RCR P4, and RCR T70. Choose period livery, or your own design.
"This is slot racing at it’s best!…combining the fun of slot car racing with the great tracks and history of the sport." Derek Hill – Race Drive & son of legendary Phil Hill
