They never made diecast models with the exception of the 375. Everything else is Kyosho. The only reason BBR configures anywhere on the models is pure licensing issues. That aside I think that from anything to ever come out branded as BBR, this is the best model of them all.
It shows four very important things to me.
1) how ridiculously overpriced resin models are
2) what Kyosho is really capable of if they really try
3) there is a way around mattel's monopoly on Ferrari models
4) this really shows how much Ferrari collectors and fans are losing by mattel having exclusive rights

I see.

Quite an amazing contrast to where Kyosho is today :doh:

Though it has taken them years to finally produce some good quality models, I think they are more than capable of producing some great examples. Now if they can harness this greatness into more variety be it Ferrari and beyond, and do it within reasonable production times they could be a contender to knock AUTOart out of first ;)

I don't see them ever knocking AUTOart out of the list. Simply because AUTOart relies solely on models to survive, whether Kyosho's main business is Radiocontrolled items.

I see. My bad. Unfortunately, the reality is that if they give us an AUTOart product it will come with AUTOart price. So actually I am happy with what Mattel offer now. For around $100 their models are unbeatable.

At $100 they can't be beat. Exceptional execution. EVO review to come...
