I'm surprised no one mentioned The Graduate! Made this car, in this color, fairly famous. Of course it also made the Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon pair pretty well known as well.

I've always liked this Alfa, especially the earlier boat-tail shown on this example. Beautiful cars.

It is one of the few sports cars that remained in production for several decades using the original chassis. These Alfas were made until the nineties using the same chassis. Porsche 911 and Lotus Esprit also enjoyed ~30 year production runs.

If I wanted a 1/12 scale model right now I would probably select this. It appears to be worth the price, just not for me.

One of the few cars of which I am quite fond and don't have a scale model.

? about the Autocraft Lykan Hypersport. Is this model going to be distributed in the US? I am not terribly in love with this car, but I feel compelled to support this new company making quality diecast supercar models for under $100! It looks to be a really good model!

If I remember correctly it might be in works. Europe is their first priority.

Well I would think they would want to tap into the NA market but I guess I might have to pay the extra for shipping across the big pond. Where is the best deal for this one?
