If I could find the Tamiya 288 GTO for a nice price, the Hot Wheels Elite would be gone in a second, although I do like its engine bay. As for the FXX, the "super" elite has a few nice added details, which I like it for. The body is the same though.

+1

Only model i ever wanted from Hot Wheels is the 458 GT2. And i liked the F12 but i didn't want to buy it because i can't put it next to the Giallo Orion Aventador made by Autoart. I didn't buy the Minichamps SLS Black for same reason. This two are on my wishlist, and looks like they only stay on it for a long time, maybe forever.

For me, the Elite series are on its own way. They look nice all together -if i want a modern Ferrari collection only, i would go this way than the overpriced Kyoshos and BBRs- and probably the best low cost models on the market. But they don't mix with Autoarts on the same shelf, in my opinion.


I hope the 'signature' models are gonna be good.

I don't know what are you guys smoking, but my Hot Wheels Elite 250 California Spider is mixing just fine with my CMC Ferraris on the same shelf.

That's nuts! Their most recent releases are on par or exceed AUTOart. Then I'll mention price around $100-$120, well below the other brand.

anyone ever stop and think about this........

If Bburago models are a hit and better then the older Hot Wheels Elite, the older Hot Wheels Elite models(like the 288 GTO and F40) could drop in value in the used market.

.....or

visa versa. If they are worse and this is the only Ferrari's we will see for years then the Hot Wheels Elite might go up more!!

oh one last thing..........If Mattel had the Ferrari license for 15 years, then how could other companies like BBR and Kyosho make Ferrari models?

Something I've been scratching my head about. Im assuming that they paided Mattel a fee per model.

I think our resident Ferrari license expert can answer that for you (Lucky13)

As for the Tamiya or the Kyosho, the 288 GTO is only made by Tamiya.

Basically the Mattel's license entitled them to "budget" or "mass" market channels. Anyone else had to create models in the "high-end" spectrum, $200+
