Thanks to Mac47 for this insightful review: http://www.diecastsociety.com/review-au ... evolucion/

Mac47's closing paragraph and his remarks regarding "shelf presence" helped me to decide that this is the Zonda for my collection.

Love the pearl white and the downward slant from back to front, gives the car an aggressive look. Grabs my eye even from across the room.
Nice one! I also chose the white/black Revo over the black/blue carbon precisely because of the greater shelf presence. And I did not regret the decision.
Fist bump for you my friend. :beer:

Great additions all around, gents! :rockon:
Yep Volvo in the series, but this year will be the last.

The singer does look really great. If a diecast ever comes out (most likely won't), I might get one

Mine just arrived. The colour is truly brilliant! GTS has their painting done to a fine art. Just wow! Review to come!

Today I'm pretty excited cause my holiest of grails, the whale of grails, has arrived. The Exoto 917/30 Mark Donohue Sunoco car.

I have a book on Mark Donohue and he's on the cover in this same car. Back when I first started buying Exotos, I used to look at pics of this one and dreamt of adding it some day. The detail is insane. The car itself had like 1000 hp, and the driver had a knob he would turn to increase boost and turn the power up to 1200 hp+. That's in a car that weighs less than a shoe lol. The flat 12 engine is crazy. It won in Can-Am, not sure what year, and nothing else could touch it. It's a monster and the model does it justice. Remember that holy grail thread you made? This was mine.

The year you are referring to is 1973. It certainly would've won even more but Can-Am's organizers imposed a fuel limit on turbocharged cars to effectively stop the Porsche 917/30.

Congratulations on your holiest of grails. Beautiful car, real life and the model!

I hope to add my own grail one day which is the Gulf liveried 917 McQueen drove in the movie LeMans. In the meantime, I'll just live vicariously through your enthusiasm. :okay:

Thanks for the info! Are you looking for the Gulf 917 in 1/43?
