All-metal castings. Real Riders wheels. Mixes designed especially with collectors in mind. That's the deal with our Car Culture series, and the fourth mix for 2020 is going vertical! "Thrill Climbers" celebrates one of the oldest forms of car racing – going up an inclined road course as fast as you can.
If there's one other awesome thing for which Car Culture is known – it's known for a lot of awesome things, actually, but ride with us on this – it's known for premium authentic styling and details. In the case of this mix, the deco is inspired by the liveries of real-life hill-climbing racers. And this mix features two new castings, and two other cars sporting die-cast chassis for the first time. This hill-climbing business is a big deal!

- '84 Audi Sport Quattro (New die-cast chassis!)
- Ford RS 200
- Lancia 037 (New casting!)
- Porsche 934.5 (New die-cast chassis!)
