A Great Find At A Budget Price Scalextric GT-R White

2 min read

Since the beginning of January, I’ve been looking for a red Nissan GT-R at a budget price. I’ve been keeping an eye on a red one that seems to keep getting re-listed with no buyer on eBay. The issue with the car is that it’s listed for $60 and the shipping is $14. This makes the car out of reach in my opinion; the car may be worth that in the next one or two years.

Being unaware that Scalextric (Hornby Hobbies) created a white Nissan GT-R I was only focused on the red. This one appeared at the right time with a buy-it-now price on eBay. In total, I was able to pick this car up for $27. It’s truly a testament to always be patient and diligent.

The car isn’t in mint condition, there appears to be something wrong with the rear axle. Maybe the clips that keep it attached to the frame have broken off somehow. I’ll take it apart and compare it to my silver GT-R. Then I’ll know if it’s something that I can fix or not. Regardless it came with a DPR chip installed so I got my $27 worth.

I believe these toy cars will have a valuable future but it’s too soon to be asking for money in the $70 range. I will continue patiently looking for the red car to add to my collection. If you know of any other colors made of this car leave me a comment in this post.

I have a love for all things toy car-related whether it's Lamborghini toy cars, Corvette C8 toy cars, or big car toys for adults. My specialty is looking for the best deals in the right places.

Vintage toy cars are something that fascinates me. What makes old toy cars worth money? The desire to have the car that you dreamed about as a kid. Having the income to purchase the car now that you've found, imagining the joy that it will bring.

What toy car brands are hot right now?

There are RC cars for beginners and slot car racing for those with smaller budgets.

I also love to do home automation in my spare time for fun. I love to consult on all things computers but mostly for family. Technology has always been a passion of mine so I've always studied information systems. I have over 20 years of experience in this function and love it because it's challenging but also rewarding.
