Guiloy Hispano Suiza HS21 GTS

Post by [KRAFTIG] » Sun Aug 12, 2012 9:45 am

One car that's painful to find has been the Hispano Suiza HS21 GTS from Guiloy. Considered one of the best if not the best release from Guiloy this car is must have for any Supercar/Exotic collector. The wait is over, thanks to a DS member littlerockshhd who posted one was available on eBay. The auction had just under four hours remaining, no bids, and a starting price of $49US. The best part the seller was local to Toronto and would allow pick up! I won the auction at $60US which equates to ~$58CND. A score for one rare model today!

I'm not going to comment of the model except to say this is by far the heaviest model I've ever had the pleasure of holding. A solid piece of die cast indeed... I'll let the images speak for themselves. Enjoy the pics!

This model is next to impossible to find our days. I have one too. It is not very good quality, but the over-the-top looks make up for it. There was only one made in 1:1 and Guilloy are the only ones that ever made it in scale.

A very rare bird, I was hunting one down for years, and then I ended up getting for near pennies compared to what we pay for models today.

If you're a supercar collector this one is a must have, happy hunting!

If only the tires were better made...

Very interesting cars they made actually, i like their choices.

What is wrong with the tires. Actually the tires are the least that needs worry on this model.

Two pieces for one tire. I know it's a cheap model but these are way too much toy-like. Interior and engine details are good in my opinion but every time i open the front or rear compartment, these tires will always gonna disturb me.

I had to look on my model to see what are you talking about. I am assuming that it is the mold line running down the center. Because they are one piece with a mold line in the middle, which when brand new, is exactly how some real tires are made too. It is really easy to make them look used and without that line, but just scuffing them a little
