As of now my holy grails are (all in 1/18):

1) AUTOart Lexus LFA (non-Nur) in white (have it in red);
2) Kyosho F40 Hi-End in red (have it in yellow - original release);
3) AUTOart Aston Martin V8 Vantage in blue (have it in black);
4) AUTOart Lamborghini Reventon in grey;
5) CMC Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in black (have it in silver).

Also there are some other sought after models but they don't deserve to be mentioned here as "holy grails".

After a lot of eBay auctions which I just lost in the final few seconds (damn snipers...), I finally won an auction yesterday.
If all goes well, I finally have one of my current holy grails by the end of this week: Porsche 917 1971 LeMans testcar "Pink Pig" by Minichamps.

Your lucky.Haven't found any of these two.May i ask how much were the Actros and Captiva back when you got them?

I really want this Holden Captiva LTZ 2014 but the 1:18 paudi Chevrolet Captiva First generation is the closes thing i can get.

I was watching it from the start and the night before with all the excitement I put a bid of £265 on it. Next morning suddenly realised that couldn't afford it and was begging for a sniper!! Thankfully one came and since then I've put a limit on how much I will spend in one model
