We ordered four of these two weeks ago. They came in last weekend the parts guy at the dealer took one for himself and they sold two before the postcard came to me telling me my special order had arrived. The guy in parts had to call me to check (thankfully) if I had picked mine up and then put my name on it. They had it on display and probably could have sold more. This is a beautifully detailed model. The pictures we have take don't do it justice.

Just makes me wish this car was out beating up on Porsches. Maybe next year.

If you're interested they can be ordered from Germany.

Thanks to VinceTopasBlau3 for posting the PN.

No problem, Steve! :)

I wished I can keep one, but my cabinets are full of these. :(

that's only like a 1/4 of it, isn't it? or less?

More like 1/3 of my collection. Still have a compartment of models that are still in their boxes... :( I actually modified some of the touring cars to in order to "lower their suspension". Tough job for 1/43s.


Anyhoo, here's a rarity:

I just got mine today.

Vince, thanks again for posting the p/n. In restropect, I should have taken up on your offer. The dealer's price, after the 10% rebate from CCA, came to $95 plus tax. Anyway, it is a beautiful model. The first one the dealership had and the parts guy was showing it to others (I felt the model has accumulated 5 miles before I took possession).

Hey Dave! Glad you got it. :)

I am still trying to figure where I can place another 1/18. :( Perhaps in the kitchen? hrm....

If you are running out of space, I am more than willing to let you park them in my house (no charge). :D

Thanks Vince! I just ordered an Black M3 1:18th model made by Kyosho earlier today. I really love the GT3 model. I guess I should talk to my dealer about getting it.

Ah, that would be nice. 5-6 years and I'll be looking at the M4.
