Slot Classic was born in 1995, as César Jiménez's brainchild. He was not only a big fan of classic cars and a slot car collector, but also a self-taught model maker. He realised his long-time dream of offering to other collectors the models he created for his own collection and amusement.The brand’s philosophy was to recreate, in limited and numbered series, those legends of motor racing history which were unappealing to the big manufacturers due to their minority following.
The early years were a tribute to the legacy of Spanish brands like Pegaso and SEAT. Eventually the first foreign models were produced, with brands like Alfa Romeo, BMW or Ferrari, which were fundamental to promote the company in the international slot car racing scene.
The XXI century arrived and the brand was firmly established as the world leading manufacturer of handmade slot cars, selling out all the production amongst subscribers and usual retailers. Besides, a series of three luxury book was started, written by the german collector and brand expert, Uwe Kitza.
On top of that, the brand has been acknowledged by the slot car specialized media: the CJ-26 “Lancia Aurelia B20” was awarded as the best resin slot car of 2006 by the magazine Más Slot and the CJ-47 “Alfa Romeo 2900B 8C spider” was honoured as the best slot car of 2018 by the American website Model Car Hall of Fame.
Each new release is a challenge not only for improving but also to surprise all those passionate slot car fans with brand new models which are not part of their collection yet.
