Now I am actually interested in California.
CMC model doesn't impress me. I think it has something wrong in the shape. Also the price is :o
What are the differences between red and other colours? Is it because red car is from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"?
Leaning towards black.

The Kyosho Lamborghini Urraco Rally some-what under-appreciated. Still can be had for a steal and maybe of the last real complete models that came from Kyosho before the turbulent times. Detail inside and out is beautiful. Maybe there isn't a lot of classic Lambo fans out there, but if you are the fence with this one don't be! Oh, and what a beautiful ass!

I agree with that one as well...though I will say, even the non-Rally versions are worth adding for a Lambo fan.

Also available in orange...

yup...that's a good one. I've meant to buy this one, but something has always come up. Red is my favorite color, by a long shot.

Btw...it wasn't a concept car. 25 were produced, according to Callaway's site. http://www.callawaycars.com/the-company ... -cars/c12/

The Callaway Corvettes definitely exist. At least three of them are in this private collection.

WARNING!!!! Please try not to hurt your jaw when it drops. And yes, all this cars are owned by one person, who is a very nice guy by the way.

That's a great one. I have the black non-R Coupe...beautiful model.

I'll also add the AA XJS. I don't have one, but they are relatively cheap.

I had both once, sold the non-R version shortly after I got the R. Both are exceptionally done!

Well if you're into concept car's here's a nice edition by an iconic brand SHELBY. The Shelby Cobra Concept by AUTOart is beautifully crafted. A model that can be sourced for less than $40.
