If you see another car like this that has a DIN #, then most likely you have a sample.

I would say yes, it is a sample. Being a 2007 (DIN's were instituted in 2006), and having no DIN, but not having the prototype stickers, it would be classified as a sample. Is that a trackside elite (HO only)?

I would say yes it is a pre-production sample. RCCA would run about 6 of these sample's and fly them to the states to be inspected and approved so actual production could start. And that may have been the last year the samples were done in the Elite. All samples now are ARC's because of cost...............................................the Dawg

Karl, Yes it is a Trackside Elite with hood open only. I was asked, why do they make samples and what it would be worth. I couldn't answer that question so I'm looking for the right answer.

Thanks Michael. I now know why they made samples but what is it worth?

Value is based on driver and desire mostly. I wouldn't say that one's worth a lot, although the right person might give a little more for that one. As always, it's worth what someone's willing to pay for it, but I don't think it would fetch, at best, more than $75-$100 bucks. Of course, you never can tell. It could go for $25 and it could go for $200+. Who knows in today's market?

kspool...Karl answer your question the BEST. Depending on driver, paint scheme, fan base..ect it can go for BIG BUCKS or not much more than a regular diecast. Haa collectors ego and bragging rights come into play also.
