Latest Replicarz Marmon Wasp spy photos

1911 Indy winning Wasp nears finish line1911 Indy 500 winner, Marmon Wasp

OK, so they aren’t really spy shots, but someone we know who is close to the project has sent us  more “spy photos” of the new Replicarz Marmon Wasp. This is the racer that won the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911 with Ray Harroun aboard.

Paint details are still being worked out, but you can see here that the car looks great with the No. 32 now in place on both sides of the car and on the grille. Replicarz will be the first to produce the Wasp in 1:18 scale and the folks at the Vermont-based diecast firm expect it to be something special.

The announced price is $229.99, but don’t let that scare you off. This promises to be the centerpiece of many Indy 500 collectors’ display. Hope we can tell you exactly when it will arrive soon. I’m seeing Christmas present here for a lot of collectors.

Remember too, Replicarz is the company that is bringing back the Indy laydown roadsters along with some 1980s March and other racers that formerly were made by Carousel 1. So keep watching this site and Scale Auto magazine’s site for the latest updates on these historic Indy racers as they roll out of the factory.
