Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 - AUTOart

As soon as the AUTOart 1:18 Gallardo LP60-4 was released in Dec 2009, I hesitated to get one because the only colors available were black & yellow. While I was eagerly waiting for the white one to be released, I learned from our local diecast shops that its release was going to take sometime later which made me impatient. So 2010 came, I bought a yellow version right away and told myself that I would just sell it in case the white version comes out.

Surprisingly a week later after I purchased the yellow LP560, the white one was released. On that day, my friends and I hurried to one of our favorite diecast stores and I got the white one. When I placed the 2 (yellow & white) Gallardo LP560 models side by side, I was amazed how the yellow version stood out. Which is why I have decided not to sell it anymore and just keep it together with the white one.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

Lamborghini Diablo VT - AUTOart

The AUTOart Lamborghini Diablo VT is one of my two holy grails. I've searched for more than two years for this model. Thankfully, a good friend and collector, Mike Cortez, helped me acquire one.

This model is one of AUTOart's earliest release. The model itself is fantastic. Special mention on the very realistic interior. The exterior lines, stance, angles, and shape are all perfect and no other model maker have produced a Diablo model this good.

The 1:43 version is also made by AUTOart.

Lamborghini Countach LP400 - Kyosho

The Lamborghini Countach is the first true exotic supercar. It inspired many other car manufacturers to step up to the next level in building sport cars. Although Lamborghini admittedly knew that the Countach's major flaw is its aerodynamics, still it became an icon and a legend in the automotive industry worldwide.

Below are pictures of the LP400. Blue metallic with white interior. This 1:18 model is excellently made by Kyosho which has always been my choice when it comes to Countach and Miura models. The 1:43 version on the otherhand is made by Minichamps.
