Apex Replicas have also announced that they are taking pre-orders for 1:43 versions of this year’s Le Mans 24 Hour-winning LMP1 Toyota TS050 Hybrid from Toyota GAZOO Racing.

In addition to the outright winner, each of the class-winning cars from the French endurance classic, including the LMP2, LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am cars will also be produced.
