This year it was no exception and the 42000 Grand Prix Racer is now available for online ordering in UK. Some fans have already received it and started to publish photos at Eurobricks from the model, new parts, etc.
We finally come to see also the new wheel hub housings in full detail. Two different ones, for the front and rear wheels as expected.
And finally we get to see the motor crankshafts changing from LBG into Tan (which I had noticed somewhere else too). The reasoning behind the change, no one knows! Maybe to make the parts easier to distinguish and find, as it is the usual excuse.
Bellow some other photos of the complete model and the motorization proposed with set 8293.
As it seems the motorization allows to raise the fake engine cover or to adjust the rear wing tilt, according to the selection on the side gearbox.
Don't know about you, but that Battery Box behind the rear wing on the motorized version, does not fit!...
