I still have my MIB 288 GTO HWF sitting at my parents' house. They're going for crazy money now! Part of me is tempted to sell it to fund another car in my theme now, but it's hard to let go of such an iconic car from my younger years.

I don't collect Ferrari anymore (or else I'd spend even more on models), but I'm also curious to see what the new license holders come up with!

Only time will tell as they say. I have to say I'm happy with the news in certain cases as their production is faster than Mattel and the cost will certainly be lower. The accuracy on details...well nothing is ever perfect. As the recent elite and heritage line releases have been showing endless QC issues maybe Maisto and Bburago will do a better job or maybe it will just increase the business for the modders out there to create accurate parts for the models haha.

Have to say though, the recent stingray and mustang release are pretty decent for the budget level. Lines are clean minus the dog legs but hey if you don't want to spend $500 on BBR then maybe it will be a better choice for all.

See them hinges on the hood to support open and close motion them are commonly known as dog legs. A similar engineered hinges in commonly used on doors too.

They're not as realistic for most parts as a proper pin hinge, such as AUTOart usually uses.

ok.....let me ask you this. Has anyone had the chance to review/look at the Bburago Lamborghini Reventon yet. Ive only seen pics of it in its box and it actually looks decent. I would say that Auto Art's will blow it out of the water but the price difference might be the eqalizer

No, but it won't be anywhere near the detail. It also may be out scale too. That being said their best effort In my opinion is the Dodge Viper done under the Maisto brand:

as much as I'm eager to see at the end of the month what Bburago does with Ferrari, I'm just as eager to see what Hot Wheels Elite does?

Agreed...the exterior looks great for a $20 model. The C7 is also nice. Had my '10 Mustang out this weekend & forgot how nice that is.

I just Hope Bburago re issues the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale BUT does it right. One of my favourite Ferrari's but man did Hot Wheels Elite @&*% it up.

How could they make such a nice Scuderia but screw up the Challenge Stradale

The Scuderia is a much newer model compared to the Stradale. I used to have a Stradale too. Feels like ancient history now.

also...the Scuderia was made as an Elite first & then the Foundation was made.

The CS was made before the Elite line even came out and then details were added when the Elite line ramped up.

I hear Ya, it's just that somebody has to do this model right. It's to cool of a ferrari not have a model that does it right.

Kyosho should do it, to the same detail that they did there F40
