Toy Fair – Serpent Motorsport

Serpent S120

As shown on Red RC on Tuesday, Serpent had lots of new products on their booth this year including the new S240 and the S120. Unfortunately the S500 electric 4wd buggy is not yet on the booth, but is expect to arrive later on in the fair. The S120 was not being shown to press, only distributors, as we are told that it features some unique design features, in particular the lateral damper and central tweak adjuster, that Serpent are keen to keep out of sight from competitors.

Serpent S240

What we did get to see was the S240, this 1/24th scale pan car is a very simple, all carbon fibre car that takes tiny LiPo cells to power its miniature motor. The best thing about these cars is the body shell, the Group C type shell sports all sorts of scoops and air intakes, all just for looks. Serpent will also release an ALMS version as well as a GT/Touring car type body. Serpent were also displaying the 08 versions of their S960 and S720 as well as the company’s new line of Central designed GT bodyshells. The F180 was also on show as well as the S400 touring car, however there are no new updates on these cars for 2008.

Xceed Tools

Other items of note on the stand was the Xceed line of tools, tires and products.
