    The newest I got is the 3 vectras from 2008
    GIOS from 2007
    Platos from 2008

    Don't think theres been any for general sale sadly.
    I know theres a guy over on another forum who reliveries certain ones for himself and theres people you can send the details of graphics to in order to do it yourself, but its not easy to find the right people to do it and they certainly don't come cheap.
    One guy I contacted wanted about £25 for just a set of names in white lettering and numbers for the door stickers (I wanted to change the name and number to my own).

    Very surprised the likes of Chevrolet havent brought out a model considering they had cars in both the BTCC and WTCC this year.

    Not exactly upto date, but there are three auctions on a popular site for TOC's 2007 RAC BMW and also another for Carl Breezes 2004 Alfa Romeo 156.

    Don't think so, I don't think Minichamps have made models of BTCC cars since the 90's.

    The nearest you can get to an Aon Focus is a 1:18 scale model you can get off the same auction site from China. The model works out at over £70 inc. shipping, but then you'd have to strip the livery off the car, make alterations to the shell to match the BTCC car then get decals made to suit.

    GPL have always been overpriced, sometimes the same models can be found alot cheaper in local model shops or online.
    I bought the Stewart Fords and the Jaguars, both by Hotwheels but very good detailed models, but GPL wanted alot more money for them than I got them for, from a small independant Model shop that used to be near me. I bought a few models off a bloke who knew someone who sold models more as a hobby rather than having a shop but he reckoned he put on in excess of 100% mark up his models and they were still alot cheaper and he wasn't able to buy so many as bulk.

    Is that the correct model for the AON car from last year?
