AUTOart’s Sixth Element

posted in Diecast, Other Cars |

Today AUTOart delivered five new 1:18 subjects, and we also put the rest of Spark’s 1:18 announcements onto our website.

The highlight from AUTOart was the stunning 1:18 2010 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (AA74671), which looks fantastic with its carbon fibre bodywork. It also has opening doors and a removable rear engine cover.

A very close second in the excitement stakes was AUTOart’s extremely intricate 1:18 2011 Pagani Huayra in white (AA78267). You actually have to undo some screws in order to open up the front and rear bodywork. It’s very fiddly, but worth the effort as the detail is stunning.

AUTOart also released the 1:18 2010 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in three colours: Carbon Black (AA70937), Dark Blue (AA70938), and blue and white (AA70939).

In other news, all of Spark’s 2014 1:18 announcements are now on our website.  The most interesting subjects took the form of three Aston Martin road cars: the DB4 (SPA18S132), DB4 convertible (SPA18S133), and DB4 GT (SPA18S134).

There were some great endurance subjects too, including the Ford GT40 that David Hobbs and Mike Hailwood drove to third place in the 1968 Le Mans 24 Hours (SPA18S128), the Mazda MXR-01 that raced at Le Mans in 1992 in the hands of Johnny Herbert, Bertrand Gachot and Volker Weidler (SPA18S127), and the 1987 Daytona 24 Hours winning Porsche 962 of Al Holbert, Derek Bell, Chip Robinson and Al Unser Jnr(SPA18DA87).
