All About Norev Diecast

The popular French diecast model car manufacturer Norev was named after its founders, the Veron brothers, with the name spelled in reverse. The company first began production with plastic infant toys, and by 1953 were making 1/43 scale plastic cars with red hubs, white tires, and no windows. It wasn't until 1965 that Norev started making diecast models out of metal.

While Norev made many cost-saving decisions that kept them more in the realm of toys rather than collector cars for quite a while, all their models were incredibly detail-oriented and accurate. After many acquisitions and spin-offs, Norev is now creating models aimed at older collectors, producing both new models and recreating historic French and English brands. Take a look here to see the many Norev offerings we have available.

NOREV 2007 PORSCHE 911 GT2 1/18 WHITEAble to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and reach top speeds of 204.5 mph, the 2007 Porsche 911 GT2 was the priciest of the 911s. This was due in part to the lighter weight caused by the change from all-wheel to rear-wheel drive. Based off the 911 Turbo, the GT2 had many upgrades and adjustments, from lighter interior parts to an improved Boxer-6 Turbo engine. With 550 hp at its disposal, it's easy to see why this 2-door sports car was so desirable.

While the real 2007 Porsche 911 GT2 may be out of most collectors' price ranges, Norev has created a much more affordable version for car lovers to enjoy. This 1/18 scale model is a simple and elegant white color to accentuate its sleek body and exterior design.

NOREV RENAULT ALPINE A110-50 1/18 BLUE ORANGEThe Renault Alpine A110-50 was released as a revival tribute for the 50th anniversary of the original Alpine A110. This gorgeous vehicle really stands out with its unique coloring and body design. At only 1940 pounds, the car is incredibly light-weight and gets a base of 395 hp from its 3.5 L V6 engine, with more hp at each of the 6 transmission speeds. Computational fluid dynamics are to thank for the aerodynamic and modern design of the exterior, while the interior is simple and uncluttered, with a single seat and a color screen on the wheel.

From the half-domed lamps to the recognizable rear engine window, Norev has recreated every detail of this masterpiece beautifully. This 1/18 scale model comes in Alpine blue with orange accents that show off every curve of this work of art.

NOREV 1:18 1953 SIMCA ARONDE BLACKA 4-door saloon filled to the brim with classic style, the Simca Aronde quickly became one of the most popular Simca vehicles, bringing them a lot of success during the '50s. A plastic dashboard replaced the metal ones seen in other vehicles of the time. This vehicle also sported chrome headlights, a 4-speed manual transmission, and a 1221 cc 44.5 bhp engine. Independent suspension and a live axle were just a couple of the other characteristic features of this classic car.

This 1953 version of the popular Simca Aronde comes in a sophisticated black. On a 1/18 scale, Norev has done it once again, creating a wonderful model perfect for any car lover's collection. This model is a wonderful tribute to a highly-beloved classic car.

    I collect 1/18 scale models. All the good ones seem to be 1/24 scale. Like the red Lincoln, I would like to see 1/18 scale models of the 50's and 60's.
