Based in Böblingen, near Stuttgart, Germany, Fola Osu’s Slotfabrik outfit have earned a loyal following among the 1:24 slot racing community as producers of high-performance 1:24 chassis and highly-detailed LMP, GT3 and Gp.5 bodies. More recently, they’ve started producing smaller components to compliment that range… parts I can only describe as ‘jewellery for slot cars’!
It’s said that “…if clothes make the man, then the wheels make the car” – so, for me, the highlight of Slotfabrik’s range are definitely these gorgeous new aluminium BBS rims, designed specifically to complement their awesome Porsche 919 LMP racer. Meticulously manufactured and simply stunning to look at, these rims will enhance the look of any car and, weighing in at only 3.0gr (rear) and 1.5gr (front), they won’t do anything to stunt performance.

A set of these are on the wishlist for our 2016 1:24 GT Sprint entry – of course, we’ll still have to race with the standard hand-out Scaleauto rims and rubber, and it’s not ‘officially’ the correct wheel for the car, but – we simply cannot resist the temptation of being able to take photos of our freshly-liveried Audi R8 sat on a set of these stunning BBS rims… definitely the perfect finishing touch.
