i have had this car for a very long time (my first autoart) and i have noticed this issue ever since i got it, but it just dawned on me as i was looking through the autoart diecast disasters. so i wanted to see if anyone had a similar problem like this.

so the rear diffuser was forgotten about when they finished screwing in the model, and i am unable to snap it in place. I know it is a very easy fix but i just wanted to show it.

I am not surprised the CCX is kinda flimsy, I had to send the first one I got back for an issue with a loose rear wheel. I have had no issues with the other 40 or so Autoart models I have bought, well one little one. But this is not the first time I have seen somebody have problems with the CCX. It makes sense I guess because it is a rather mental car and I can see why nobody has bothered doing anything other than sealed resins of K'egg's. I am glad that Autoart tackled it, as I still really like the car and the company, but I passed on the Agera.

I had 4 CCX'S that were all faulty in some shocking ways. Each one I sent back for an exchange and got sent another faulty one. The one I kept is crap. Don't know why I did keep it tbh. AUTOart rushed them by the looks of things.. I'll show you some pics later.

Someone didn't put chassis back to body properly..
You will have to unscrew the chassis, and put it on the model again. You have to stuck that rear part behind the bumper..

thanks, thats kind off what i assumed but it seems like a big commitment and something that is beyond my skill level (lol yes unscrewing some thing then putting it back is hard for me)

The CCX is a very interesting subject matter as we all love it and I too think AUTOart didnot do the car any justice. It doesnot feel solid like a signature should(compare to their Bugatti Veyrons). Luckily mine came with minor issue(one of the rear wheels doesnot roll much).
