1999 EVO VI Rally of New Zealand - Tommi Makinen

tommi makinen fans...

don't know if anybody saw this... looks like kyosho might be coming out with another lancer evo vi with the 1999 rally new zealand livery...

prototype pics according to my source...
too bad production didn't make it in time for the tokyo hobby show...
i figure licencing issues? barring any other issues, source said release may be in december or jan...

kinda made me excited to dig up some info on tommi...

from wiki...
Tommi Antero Mäkinen (Finnish pronunciation:ˈtommi ˈmækinen) is a now retired Finnish rally driver, born in Puuppola, Finland near Jyväskylä on 26 June 1964. As of 1999 he lived in both Monaco and Jyväskylä, married, with two children. Mäkinen is one of the most successful WRC drivers of all time, ranking second in championships (4), tied with Juha Kankkunen and behind Sébastien Loeb (9), and fifth in wins (24). He is a four-time World Rally Champion, a series he first won, and then successfully defended, continuously throughout 1996 (EVO III), 1997 (EVO IV), 1998 (EVO IV & V) and 1999 (EVO VI), on all occasions driving the Ralliart Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. He also aided Mitsubishi to the 1998 world constructors' title as well as winning the 2000 Race of Champions. Mäkinen's navigators include compatriots Seppo Harjanne and Risto Mannisenmäki, the former retiring from alongside Mäkinen having previously served 1985 champion, and fellow "Flying Finn", Peugeot's Timo Salonen.

who knows, it possible it could be just a hold over till licensing was approved or just some production run that got lost somewhere in the chain. hard to explain why the finished packaging has reference to outdated model other than it sat storage for some deal of time.
