Despite not competing in any actual class, Chevrolet and NASCAR's Garage 56 Camaro was the star of the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Hendrick Motorsports team built a stock car safe enough to run with a full field of sports cars at Le Mans, blew fans away with the car's ridiculous sound, and found a way to win a pit-stop competition as the only team using a floor jack. All of that meant that everyone involved achieved the goal of showing the world what makes NASCAR great, but the car was still missing one NASCAR tradition: A die-cast model car. That is finally about to change.

Hendrick Motorsports, the team that ran the Garage 56 car, is now offering four different die-cast models of the winglet-heavy Camaro on its team shop. Models come in both 1:43 and 1:18 sizes, with both sizes available in either pre-race or post-race condition. Both are produced by the parent company of TSM Model, although the larger 1:18ths are part of the group's Top Speed line.

Unfortunately, the model cars are not exactly as reasonably priced as a traditional stock car die-cast. The smaller 1:43 models are available at just under $100, while the larger 1:18 models come in at over $200. Both are currently available for pre-order with an expected ship date in mid-June, just in time for this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans.
