Along Came a Spyder: Hot Wheels Elite’s 1:43 458 Italia

Hot Wheels Elite 2012 Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder  1:43 | $44.99  Ferrari needed two years to develop a topless version of their 458 Italia, but fortunately for those of us who can’t afford a copy of the $257,000.00 car (magnificent though it may be), Hot Wheels Elite has created this beautifully made diecast model in […]
A “Heyer” Power: Minichamps’ 1:43  “Heyer Tribute Set”

A “Heyer” Power: Minichamps’ 1:43 “Heyer Tribute Set”

Minichamps “Heyer Tribute Set”  1:43 | $149.50  Watching vintage footage of Hans Heyer bombing around circa 1971 in a four-door, AMG-prepped Mercedes 300SEL is a lot of fun, and realizing that he had a monster 6.8 liter V8 motor under the car’s hood (all the better to suck the headlights out of his track mates) […]

S2, Brute? Minichamps 1:43 Bentley S2 Cabriolet

S2, Brute? Minichamps 1:43 Bentley S2 Cabriolet

 Minichamps Bentley S2 Cabriolet  1:43 | $72.00  Bentley made a big change in October 1959, when it added a new 6.2 Liter V8 as its main power source. The OHV motor offered better performance, for sure – but adding the aluminum engine to the mix also did much to improve the car’s somewhat cranky accessories, […]

SHIELDS!: Hot Wheels Elite 1:43 1989 Batmobile

Hot Wheels Elite 1989 Batmobile  1:43 | $65.99   What’s long, low, black, and powered by a jet engine? No, not the SR-71 Blackbird – but you’d deserve partial credit for thinking so. It’s the Batmobile created for the 1989 movie Batman and the follow-up Batman Returns. Yes, in reality, the car was powered by […]

If you’ve never heard of model maker “ESVAL”, welcome to the club. But don’t be too hard on yourself.

Kyosho sees a Ghost.. and a Phantom.. in 1:43

Kyosho’s 1:18 Rolls Royce is getting some company in 1:43, thanks to this pair of extended wheelbase variants. First up is the 1:43 Rolls Royce Ghost, in “extended wheelbase” form, wearing a color called “Darkest Tungsten” – a fitting scheme for this more sporting Rolls. We like the added pieces all over the car – […]

Highway 61 Debuts 1:43! Meet the Boss…

Highway 61 Debuts 1:43! Meet the Boss…

Highway 61 made the scene several years ago with American classics like the 1951/51 Studebaker, a Hudson Hornet, and even a Nash or three. In between, they also broke out very detailed 1:18 muscle, carrying the torch for the Ertl releases that had founded the hobby. That shouldn’t have been a surprise: the company’s president […]
The Great Cerritos Shrinking Machine: AUTOart’s Incredible 1:43 Countach

The Great Cerritos Shrinking Machine: AUTOart’s Incredible 1:43 Countach

It’s a fair bet that somewhere in Cerritos, California, there exists a massive – though well-hidden – machine that is capable of reducing full sized automobiles to scale models you can palm. We haven’t seen it – yet – but we’re pretty sure that it exists somewhere deep below the warehouses and offices of Gateway […]

FIRST SAMPLES: Minichamps 1:43 “Mullin Museum” 1939 Delage D8-120 Cabrio

Henri Chapron couldn’t have dreamed the real life story that would be written around the creation he delivered on June 21, 1939; Delage D8-120 chassis number 51760 had been fashioned into a cabriolet with an eight cylinder engine of just over 115 horsepower, and its mechanicals and frame were of the latest design from Courbevoie […]
