Nürnberg Toy Fair Updates from HPI Racing for 2017!

Mon, 30th January 2017


HPI Racing is once again coming to you LIVE from the world's biggest toy fair, the Spielwarenmesse, otherwise known as the Nürnberg Toy Fair! Every year, thousands of manufacturers from around the globe descend on the Bavarian city of Nürnberg to show off their latest and greatest releases. From Lego and Disney to one-person operations, the Nürnberg Toy Fair is a week of frantic activity and excitement, and HPI Racing is there! 

Although the general public is not able to attend the Toy Fair in person, below you'll find just a taster of our upcoming car and truck kits, and you'll also find links where we'll be highlighting a selection of these latest models! You'll also be able to find details of each model on the HPI Racing Facebook page, so join the HPI fans online and share the excitement of our new releases with your friends! 


Venture scale crawler

As a new platform for scale crawling fanatics, the Venture combines a realistic front-motor position, metal chassis rails and realistic suspension and drivetrain with the looks of the Toyota FJ Cruiser for a fantastic off-road experience only HPI can deliver! With a fully licensed replica body that includes front and rear bumpers, mirrors, functional roof rack and swinging rear tire mount, the Venture brings total scale realism to crawler fans right out of the box. Underneath the body, the steel chassis rails support a front-mounted motor and transmission, central transfer case, telescoping driveshafts and solid axles with metal diff covers. Authentically scaled oil-filled shock absorbers and full-time locked differentials work with the realistically treaded tires for confident driving in all off-road situations.

Join the Venture Facebook group to get access to exclusive up-close pictures and parts features, and take part in discussions with other scale crawler fans!
