At SpotModel we are always open to the suggestions, needs and ideas of all of you. Thanks to that, we created solutions like PrintLab, we incorporated trucks, we invented functionalities like Color Finder, to name just a few. Now, for several moons many of you have asked us to incorporate 1/18 scale die-cast models into SpotModel. Well, we have rolled up our sleeves and got into it. :)

We are going to start including cars from the French renowned manufacturer Norev, and... what will you find? Basically European cars, especially French, in 1/18 scale. We will announce the new releases several months in advance so that you have time to make your product reservations, but remember that very few units are produced and they are practically discontinued within a few days of being produced. What does this mean? Well, if you are sure that you want a specific model, you'd better reserve it as soon as possible or you may end up without it.

Are you interested in other manufacturers? Maybe other scales? Don't worry, you won't have to wait many more moons to see more die-cast brands and models at SpotModel. :D

Norev Reference: DIE-59686

The Peugeot 205 GTi Griffe is very special, since it was the only limited series that Peugeot launched with this mechanics and, in fact, it was only available in France. Among its particularities were its color, a striking fluorite green, the wheels, similar in design to those of the rest of the 205 GTI 1.9 but with the central part painted in dark gray, the dark gray piping on the bumpers and the side moldings (instead in red), and the 'Griffe' logo in green on the moldings behind the rear window. This reference includes a sliding glass roof (an accessory that the owners used to add), and on the rear window you can read, in white, the legendary slogan: "Un constructor sort ses griffes", which translated means "A manufacturer shows its claws". This model allows you to open the doors and the front hood, revealing its engine. A suction cup type tool is included to make opening the doors easier.
