@mac47 I'm glad that Hot Wheels Elite finally did full windows. would be disappointing seeing windowless like the Enzo

Credit MR, who I've heard did the engineering for the Hot Wheels Elite Laugher-arri.

And I agree, half-open windows are bad. That's one thing I don't like about AA's Koenigseggs: they avoid the problems of difficult shutlines by not having window glass at all.

My first GT Spirit has arrived. My impression is WOW it is a beauty! Freaking gorgeus in person.
Pity it has some minor QC issues and package sucks.
But Arena Red paint is an eye candy. Didn't know it is metallic. Need to take some pics!

Today's pickup. The F40 was 140, the rest 80 a piece. The Yenko is blue (and it's epic)

Yea I'm quite happy with all of them, lots of eye candy. However, honestly, I really think AA's One-77 should be in the performance series price range/packaging. I think the model lacks for being a signature series.

I'm with you on this one. Based on the photos I've seen it should. I guess cornering the market with an upscale version has created some excite, personally one of my most anticipated models for 2014

Will sell the Yenko to you for 300. Lol jk. I wasn't even aware of these ads. Randomly checked kijiji and I was at his house 30 mins later. He had a yellow NSX R but sadly it was sold.

I saw the ad hours after it was live. If he could of met me early Sat morning, I would have spent a small fortune that day :lol:

Couple paint scratches above front left wheel. Need to work with Tamiya polish wax over it I think.
