The Bugatti Veyron...

We ALL know what kind of car the Bugatti Veyron is.. First impression is definitely the grandness of it. I mean, where can you stumble upon a car that is worth 1.2 - 1.7 million POUNDS? That is huge money. Well, the Bugatti company decided to break the laws of physics and technology and decided to whip up a car called the Bugatti Veyron. Years of development, finally the Veyron can be seen on roads today. The only place you can spot a Veyron easily is perhaps Dubai. Or maybe London.

Today, i'm proud to present to you, the Hotwheels Bugatti Veyron. Matte blue with black rims with a chrome silver lining. Honestly, it may not be a very accurate casting, but i really like it. Reasons is because .. IT'S A DAMN BUGATTI VEYRON! Besides Autoart (which makes really insanely epic diecast), all i can afford for now is a Hotwheels Veyron. Rm6.50 that time only mahhh =)

The front is a bit disappointing because i believe that the front headlamps should be placed higher. The grill should positioned lower as well.

The rims with chrome stripes... i might swap it with co-mold wheels, perhaps it'll look much better.
The back however is pretty good! I especially love those HUGE panels that houses the tyres. I also like how Mattel has painted the spoiler.
The Engine.. well, plastic but it's all good.

The W16 layout engine.. 16 cylinders. You don't get that much in normal cars. With a price tag of 1.7 million pounds, it BETTER be fast.

More pictures for my dear subscribers. Not following me? FOLLOW NOW!

When night falls, it unleashes it's 1001HP ... trying to reach that Veyron benchmark speed : 407km/h

Overall rating : 7/10 (Main appeal to me is the matte blue paint)

Ferrari 288 GTO (Phil's Garage)

The Ferrari 288 GTO is one of the best looking Ferrari out there. Flat, wide, low, and aggressive. A true supercar.

For this particular diecast.. it looks ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! I guess the main appeal that i actually bought this is because of the rims. It looks so good! Try to observe the mini fog lights just below the pop up lights. Insane details.

However, the back tampo wasn't exactly printed correctly so i was kinda upset. But the rims kept me satisfied. The base of the car is metal so the whole thing is kinda heavy. Not forgetting the rubber wheels! This is my first uncarded car with rubber wheels.

I love this 288 GTO's side profile. It's so damn photogenic! The yellow 288 GTO i bought from many moons ago.I also bought the black 288 GTO. Looks stunning as well!

The metal base. So much better than plastic base. The whole diecast is really heavy!

Look at the rims!! Fantastic! Most importantly, shiny.Overall, this is actually a pretty heavy diecast which is very appealing to us collectors because it feels solid and worth the price. More metal, the better.

So if you collectors out there wanna get this, i highly recommend you get it. I'm lucky i was able to still get this masterpiece.

10/10 (I can't find anything to fault this diecast)

Reventon again, but the white one.

Same model from Takara Tomy but the white one (limited). Fellow forumer "Cinta Laura" told me it was limited and i straight away rush to Jusco to buy it. People are selling these for as much as USD 11.00 on ebay and is selling at RM35!! I'm glad i bought these two Reventons at only RM10.90 each. I guess i'm lucky + the fact that the white one is limited! Kinda happy !

Anyways, gonna photoshoot these two soon enough.. Having finals in 3 days. Stay tuned yeah?!
P/s : i also realized the last 3 posts are about the Reventon.. Heh :)

Reventon. Takara Tomy style.

Always wanted this and tonight i got it!
I have to say, i really like this sticker. Shiny and a big Lamborghini logo there "Official product" Hehe.
Would you look at that matte paint? It's bloody amazing. The proportion of this car is pretty much accurate too but it seems a bit fat from the side view no? The part near the engine.
Still though, it looks damn good for RM10.90. The paint is good, no chipped paint, perfectly detailed lights *no misalignment*, yadi yada~
Engine cover also nicely detailed with the glass layers. Also, the seam lines are nice and fine.. not too fat.

But i don't get one thing though,

Thank you "Y U NO" guy for expressing my feelings.

Well, if it isn't for the rims, i'd give this a 10/10.. but final verdict? 8/10

Money well spent.

The Reventon..

Lamborghini Reventon, one of the most epic Lamborghinis ever produced by the Italians! Comes in stock Matte black (grey), and a 6.5L V12 engine. I can't tell you how amazing this car looks even though it's in toy form. I can't imagine how the real thing would look like. Scissors are a must for typical insane Lamborghini tradition! Everything about the Reventon looks epic. From the carbon fibre rims, digital tachometers(inspired from jet fighters), and it's edgy design. Only available 20 worldwide. (excluding Roadster)

Estimated to be one of the world's most expensive road car.. ever. Ranging from 850,000 Euros to 1.5million!!

(Brand is Burago)
