Retailer Hawkin's Bazaar is launching a host of toy car and F1 products this weekend.

It is stocking lines from die-cast toy car manufacturers Maisto and Bburago during the current Formula 1 season, with the products available on its website from April 19th.

These "will be a welcome addition to Hawkin’s ever-growing range of gadgets, gizmos and toys", read a statement.

Bburago is set to release a detailed replica of the Red Bull RB9 F1 car during this season - "a first" for the model car industry. 

The Ferrari Race & Play collection will also be available, including an array of models along with single and dual loop track play-sets, play-mats and even a parking garage with a car elevator and moveable car wash.

Bburago’s new range for 2013 is GoGears. This line of pull-back vehicles reach scale speeds of up to 200mph.

Also set to make an impact at Hawkin’s Bazaar is the Maisto brand which recently celebrated its 45th anniversary. The line includes 1/18 scale models, the 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500K TYP Specialroadster replica, R/C toys and more.

“We are thrilled to introduce these highly diverse model ranges to our portfolio,” said David Mordecai, Managing Director at Hawkin’s Bazaar. 

“Of the 200-plus lines being introduced from the two brands, we’re especially looking forward to the introduction of Bburago’s Red Bull cars, due to be a big success thanks to the exciting 2013 Formula 1 season.”
