AUTOart Aventador LP750/4 SV – Metallic Orange

Team AUTOart gives us a first look at their Arancio Atlas/Metallic Orange Lamborghini Aventador LP750/4 SV.  The model is completed in 1:18 scale and features their new composite material exterior panels.  Also the replica shines with full access to the motor, interior and storage bits.  Only time will tell if the model lives up to speed based on past metal exteriors.  We’ll place one underneath the microscope ASAP, the Aventador LP750/4 SV is expected this coming June.

    From the pictures, the model looks fantastic. I have the regular diecast LP700 Aventador by AUTOArt and it’s one of the best models I’ve ever seen but it has so many parts, it must cost a lot to build and paint. That AUTOart have decided to go for a composite not diecast on a model they released with the same chassis a few years back shows how much it must cost to make a good diecast model these days. The real car is Carbon fibre, so perhaps in a way, plastic is more realistic. I look forward to your review, particularly if you have the diecast Aventador alongside for a direct comparison. Probably the most important review of the year for the future of the hobby.

      Yes, I totally agree. I have the LP700-4 and the Veneno, both costing above $200, are worth it.

    • Dankguy95 says:

      Agree! I think composite panels will give it a more realistic touch with sharper body and angles, I also had an Aventador Roadster comming from signature series with a beautiful Azzuro Thetis paint job.

      Visually they always look good. Up close and in hand you feel and see the flaws, mainly they free cheap and fragile and we find the paint work isn’t a vivid as with past metal models. Hence the large assortment of MATT colours.

    Can we PLEASE stop calling the ABS plastic panels as “composite”? By doing so we buy into Autoart’s facetious marketing tactic of calling this plastic with a name that is meant for carbon fiber composites or fiberglass composites. “Composite material” can ONLY mean a material that is a composite i.e. physical matrix of two or more materials. ABS plastic (or any other plastic for that matter) is as far from being a composite material as it is from being concrete or stainless steel.

    I suspect the reason Autoart use the term composite for what are actually hybrid models i.e. metal chassis and plastic body is exactly so customers (and enthusiast sites such as DS) somehow conflate the models as similar to the real carbon fiber bodied cars. I find this very shady on Autoart’s side and as a scientist the continuous use of the term “composite material” for plastics rather irksome and dishonest.

    • kitefighter says:

      Yes, Uzair is quite right. By the same reasoning, diecast models are also composite because they have a metal body and plastic parts. If we call a model diecast when the bodywork is made of metal cast in a die, then we should call the model plastic when the models are made of injection moulded plastic. Plastic models have a proud heritage in scale model cars from companies such as Tamiya and Fujimi.

      • Uzair says:

        Quite so Kitefighter, quite so.

        There is nothing wrong with a model being made of plastic. It is the shady attempt misleading advertising that gets my goat!

    • DS Team says:

      LOL, I love the passion. We/I will continue to call as we see fit. But you continue to call it plastic.

      • Uzair says:

        Your site, your rules :)

      • Moondawn says:

        And the funny thing is that it is both right. Gentleman, every plastic is a composite, i.e. made out of more then one base material. I really don’t get the fuss and I’m amused by the ever ongoing discussion. I think AA must be amused as well. Is it really that difficult to understand? They just don’t like to call there models plastic. And by definition, where does plastic begin and where does it end? And what for crying out loud does it matter? If I like a model I buy it. If I don’t like it I don’t buy it. Life can be so simple.

    • Atalante says:

      You are right but Autoart uses the term “Composite Series” for models that are actually hybrid diecast chassis with ABS body. To my knowledge they never said their new models had “composite material exterior panel”. So out of respect for the manufacturer naming convention AND the many Collectors here I would propose that Diecastsociety sticks to “Composite Series” instead of pure fantasy material names.
