Talked to Derrick at Toronto Motorsports today and he thinks there might be another brand doing the high end line. He says the Signature Maisto or Burago or whatever line is below the level of even Hot Wheels, so someone might fill that gap. Autoart apparently had three meetings with Ferrari but at the end of the day it was too costly for them. But now apparently they had two more meetings, which is an extremely exciting prospect indeed. Then again, this doesn't mean anything. Guess we'll find out in the next few months.

Too much of a rumor! Be still my heart! Just dreaming of an AUTOart 288 GTO or F50... or FXX K to go with my Zonda Revo...

I selfishly hope the Autoart thingy doesnt happen, as that will mean a landslide of nearly identical Ferraris ala the Lambo thing they have been doing for a while now, and ignoring/postponing cars that I find interesting.

I'm happy with a lot of Hot Wheels Elite Ferrais........but some, like the ENZO, Challenge Stradale should be re done.

Plus Hot Wheels Elite missed sooooo many Ferrari road cars and F1 cars that should have been made.

If Auto Art ever did Ferraris then Hot Wheels Elite model would come crashing down in price

Jeez, definitely look toy-like and VERY basic to the eye. Recycled moulds at best!?! :(

Thanks for sorting out the pics as always...I never have the time to start with the links etc.

The tyres and alloys look positively terrible, but I think the paint looks quite a nice deep red
