Yes, they have finally released their second long-awaited, and much overdue MG Metro 6R4 model! affraid 

Originally coded RAC116, it has been brought right bang up to date with a new code - RAC116.13 - Oooooooooo, the ingenuity of IXO into making people think that they've only just allocated a new code to this model! Wink 

Anyway here it is, RAC116.13 - MG METRO 6R4 - #23 - Tony Teesdale / Greg Horne - RAC Rally 1986

I was talking to Andy earlier today, and we both reckoned that the red will have been sprayed, so it might not be that easily stripable. It's still another version for the ever growing collection however! Wink

Make it into the pre-rally version, it still had Engine Rebuilders on the side instead of Repco.

I think I just found a use for one of my decal sets. Laughing

Yes!

I should check which ones I have because I think I have some RAC decals too. Or maybe it's just RAC decals, which would be even worse.

Another model to make? I can only come up with 1 RAC and 2 NZ models.

You can't use the RAC model as a base for a Barton, Wood or Shand model, or any other white/red 6R4 I can think of, as the red/white parts never match and you'd still need to paint half the car.

You started it with suggesting a night version!

Imagine how we could expand our collections with such double versions. Shocked

I might buy some more because of the Clubman door mirrors.

It's a big expense just for some mirrors though mate - especially as the RRP is now £39.99! Shocked

£39.99 for a set of mirrors, and you get a free 6R4 with it. Laughing

The tailgate requires painting (ok, you could decal it, it's just the flat bits), but I'm more worried about the shade of red being different?

Nice find though, I hadn't looked at the more recent 6R4's.
