Newsletter 187: Martini "on the rocks"...

Martini "on the rocks"...

Martini "on the rocks"...
There was a time where "a Martini" was THE drink you ordered everywhere, and there was a huge number of different recipes and variations :) Model Factory Hiro know it well, and has prepared us the most perfect mix to sit back and relax on all the post-vacational rush, quietly listening Group B's engines roaring ;)

Do you want a dry Martini? Just ask the waiter for the Tour de corse / Sanremo B version. Want it with four olives? Ask for the additional headlamps on the Monte Carlo A version. Want it reAaAaAally shaken (and not stirred)? Have the 1984 C version, with the additional horsepower and reduced weight ;) Want it in a shot glass? Get the 1/24 version by Hasegawa. Want it with a twist? The 917K Martini Porsche by Fujimi is now also back in stock ;) Want to spice it up to your personal taste and make it unique? We also have white decal injet and laser paper to print your own designs, and a few new Zero Paints Mercedes colors if you are not so into the Martini colors at all ;)

Now, get your perfect martini in one hand, sit back in your favorite couch, and join us in a wonderful afternoon in the quietness of a grass pier, watching the CMA CGM Jules Verne cargo arriving safely and smoothly at Southampton port, carrying a handful of containers with our long awaited VW Polo R WRC by Belkits last Monday :) (exclusive footage here!) YESSS!!! They're in Europe now (finally), and will be at the store in very few days... Make sure you preorder yours now, they won't last for more than a few hours :)

The bar is open, our bartenders are ready to serve your orders, but... can you choose just one? ;)
