Greenlight Dodge Charger R/T from movie 'Bullitt9(Normal version)'

I bought this model BNIB a year ago for U$50. Now they are going for U$100+. I think it was a limited edition of 5000 pieces.

Also these 2 models have become quite rare nowadays :

AUTOart Honda Integra Type R Mugen

Norev Golf Mk6 GTi in white

I agree on the AUTOart Lancia. The Monte Carlo car pictured is getting quite rare.

I can't believe the prices for 3.0 in general..but I can see why. I use to know a seller who could barely give these away.. :shame:

Out of all the models you posted only one belongs to the topic.
All the other have become rare very long time ago.
This topic is for the models which have become rare recently.
Yesterday widely available, today hard to find.

Porsche 964 Carrera RS by AutoArt.
Couple of months ago there were many of them on eBay.
Now very hard to find for adequate price except for Jelly Bean Green.
Happy I picked up one in the colour I want.

What about the HPI McLaren's? Since HPI is no longer in the diecast business I am sure the 1:18's they produced would be pretty rare to find and if found - people will be asking an arm and 2 legs for them.

I'd say Autoart's #18 Mazda 787B, Le Mans 1991 is becoming a rarer sight. The #55 car and certainly the Gran Turismo version are still readily available, but the #18 car doesn't turn up all that often.

I really liked the 18 car but seemed to sell out quicker than I could imagine.

I have this one coming to me now. I got a fair price considering these are going for 3 times as much as its release date.
