Have you ever imagined what it was like driving a race car?

As little kids, many of us dreamt of being in the cockpit of an F1 car or speeding through all kinds of terrains in a rally car. Even when we were too young to drive, it never stopped us from racing each other with toy cars, or saving up money to collect some toy models. 

Well, we've got good news, 'cause you can bring this to reality with Shell's all-new limited edition motorsports collection! :D

If you're an avid car collector, you will be dying to add these seven models from Shell's prestigious partnerships in the motorsport scene to your collection!

To showcase the performance of their differentiated fuel, Shell V-power, the collection will feature seven high-performance toy model cars from some of the world's top motorsports teams like Ferrari, Nissan, BMW, Ford, Hyundai, and more.

Shell's partnerships with these motorsports teams showcase how incredible their products are made to perform in extreme conditions and ensure that these cars achieve their best abilities on the track.

For example, their partnership with Scuderia Ferrari has been one of the longest and most successful in motorsports. After over 70 years of working together, Shell still continues to sample and test their fuel and lubricants each race weekend to provide only the best.

More excitingly, we got a first-hand experience driving the whole collection with our smartphones, wheee!

The really cool thing about these cars is that they are innovatively designed with a smart battery, which includes a Bluetooth chip that can transform each car to become remote-controlled. How cool is that? :O

All we had to do was download the free Shell Racing App on our smartphone, and we were able to seamlessly control the racing cars. From there, we just became like little kids, trying out every little feature and pushing the cars to their limit.

For instance, some of the cars have lights that you can turn on, so you can challenge your buddies to a night race, as well as a honk feature which you can use to alert other racers to make way for the champ. :P

And, the coolest feature has to be turbo mode, which really makes you feel as if you're a real racer! The whole experience was so addicting, that we were actually sad to have to leave the cars behind after our little trial run. :')

Here's a closer look at each of the beautiful cars in the collection:
