Looking for 1:18 Lamborghini recommendation

Post by DiegoF » Wed Dec 07, 2016 4:32 am

Hello. I'd like to buy a 1:18 Lamborghini model. I see it's a quite popular choice as I'm seeing right now a turquoise Aventador in the forum banner ;)

The first one that I saw in pictures was the Kyosho Ousia Aventador SV in white color. It looks great and the price is ok, but the reason why I still didn't buy it is because it's sealed.

The second option I considered is Autoart. It's more expensive, but it's open and they have several options: LP700-4, roadster, J, LP720-4.

As many of you probably know them much better than I (never seen one apart from pictures and videos), which would you recommend me?

Thank you for the advise. I've been reading the review and it seems a great choice. Anyway, in case of buying Autoart, maybe I like more the LP720-4:

I agree with kraftig, and I am not even a fan of lambos.

At the end of the day buy what YOU like best. AUTOart does the Lamborghini marque well.

Thank you. It's a pity I can't see any before purchasing. I'm sure it would be easier.

Read the many reviews here. More than enough information and detail to make a wise purchasing decision

I finally ordered the AutoART Aventador LP720-4 white (the only one available at autoart website). It's been a difficult decision as there are several options and altough the SV look is the one I like more, this one also looks great and I can enjoy the engine and the interior by opening doors.

I also decided for AutoART because in many reviews it's considered as the best option for Lamborghini models. Even the keychain included had some influence...

Good choice, but why did you order from their website? Our sponsors offer better pricing and discounts, and usually better overall assortment.

These are fast pictures taken with a mobile phone. I'll try to find the time to take some with a better camera to show the details.
