My name is Alberto. It's an honor for me to make the official presentation of GT Spirit, the new resin line in 1/18 and 1/12 scale. I'm going to handle the communication of the brand. Unfortunately, I can do this only in English or Spanish, my apologies for any inconvenience that this can cause.
During the Nuremberg Toy Fair, GT Spirit introduced the first prototypes. The collection theme will be mainly supercars, modern and classic GTs. According to the feedback received at the Toy Fair, most of you liked the idea.
OttOmobile is doing the engineering, prototypes and moulds, but GT Spirit is doing the production. The models will be more detailed, and the inside packaging will be injected. Each car will be limited and numbered with a metal plate under the chassis. And the main point is that this line will be mainly sold on hobby shops.
The collection will start with Porsche, but other makers will be released later, in order to follow the car actuality.
GT Spirit is still in development process. The website will be running early March (www.gts-models.com), and the first models will hit the market in July 2013.
The list of models that was early filtered is only orientative, to see the potential of some cars, but is not definitive. Some models could not be produced. This can help to see the demand of each car.
I'll keep you informed.

Welcome Alberto I'm glad to see that a manufactirer is so close to the customers. I always like the idea and products of Otto but they just didn't buil something of my interest. So I hope you guys will build some italuen sport cars as well. The miura roadster would beca fantastic start as some older Lamborghini cars such as Jalpa or LM would be wonderfull
I'll try to clarify a little bit some of your questions.
It's very important to difference GT Spirit from OttO. GT Spirit is a different company, with it's own factory.
About the price, OttO is at the same time the manufacturer and retailer of its models, no middlemen, that's why they have a low price. For GT Spirit, the best option to arrive to all the collectors easily, is to use the standard distribution ways. The recommended price for GT Spirit models is 99 euros (not 119 euros, that's the price announced by one retailer).
The models will have more detail and quality.
The GT Club is in process too. I'll keep you informed about this too.
The recommended price for GT Spirit models is 99 euros
best news of the day and its really great to have now info from first hand and not by some online-shops.
And because we cleared the price-question, what about these beauties?
Will they actually come from GT-S and when can we approx. expect them
GT006 1/18 928 - - GTS 1992 99,00
GT015 1/18 MERCEDES NEW C63 AMG BLACK SERIES COUPE 2012 99,00
GT016 1/18 BMW NEW M3 GTS COUPE 2012 99,00
GT017 1/18 "ASTON MARTIN" NEW VANQUISH COUPE 2013 99,00
GT024 8 JAGUAR OLD XJ220 COUPE 1992 99,00
As they already have art.-nr. I´m sure we will see them.
The Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag deserves to be silver and I really hope GT-S brings the Jaaaaaaaaaaaaag XJR-15 one day as well
My latest Venturi showed me that I have no problem in having sealed resin models in my collection when it means that the other alternative would have been to have to model at all from the great real car.
Now, everything sounds good. I would be interested in the future products of your brand. Are you able to give a statement about your focus.............classic cars, sport cars, youngtimer....italian cars, french cars,...................
I really hope to see the M3 GTS,I think that if You will produce it,will be sold-out in a few days.
But I have a question for you: can you tell me what do you mean with "the models will be more detalied"?Thank you!
