Item Year Information

1982 An extremely well detailed and decorated model the 13 Austin Metro is the first of the modern styled hatchback cars to be produced by Scalextric. The operating hatchback actually lifts to reveal the interior of the car and its detail. The 1981 season saw the Metro competing in both the Tricentrol British Saloon Car Championships and the Metro Challenge. The two car team sponsored by Datapost, Hepolite and Esso put up some good performances and this Scalextric model is a fine representation of the team cars.
1983 Driven during the Tricentrol series by Richard Longman and Alan Cumow, the Datapost Esso sponsored Metros put up some fine performances, with Longman achieving 5 wins in the 11 race series. The aerodynamic efficiency helps the Metro achieve speeds of up to 122m.p.h. on the track. With its fine detailing, LIFTING HATCHBACK and authentic liveries the Metro is one of the most popular models in the Scalextric range.
