Nostalgie is a new series which has recently been released.
Evidently the project has been planned for several years, but release was postponed several times.

Name: Renault R16 TL 1966
Scale: 1:43
Material: Metal
Prod. years: 2004
Comments: This is the same model as the Vitesse R16, which was released a few months later.
Main differences are the color, absences of mirrors and of course the case.
Unfortunately both models have the same fault... the taillights are wrong!
This is supposed to be an early R16 (1965-1970) which has the lights in a higher position and the orange turn indicators should be towards the center.
And as all R16 experts know the TL model was first released as 1971 year model.

But on the whole it is one of the best R16 models made, second only to the Minichamps.
