Big things with little cars

Presenting your IMSA GTLM champion (in red)

Was stunned last week to see the entire Gran Turismo premium series hanging on the pegs at my Walmart. At $6 per it was an easy choice not to grab all of them, so I went with the one I’ve been waiting for since the series was announced.

It’s nice to finally have a premium C7.R with Real Riders and a metal base. The new base improves the dreaded track-ready, up-sloped chin and hides the squish face well enough. I think the dark red paint helps too.

Here it is compared to the original (and my mildly customized) C7.R.

I kind of have mixed feelings about the cast anyway. I really hope Greenlight gets the license to do a C7.R in the future. Their C6.R casting was perfect.

Here is the C7.R with Hot Wheels’ take on the C6.R (clearly from an era before HW cared about being track-ready).

I love the Corvette Racing team’s yellow livery, but I’m also a big fan of red Corvettes. I think this shade works quite well on this cast.
