I've wanted the Autoart Merc S63 AMG 1 18 for a while now but the prices are quite high. I can't pull the trigger for 400$+
Why is it that so expensive?? I would get the Maybach instead. S63 is SWB and would be better if it was LWB.

That's one lovely LFA you have there! I have to admit I have been eyeballing one of these Autoart LFA for some time now! I think one in white or even an orange Nurburgring Edition would sit well in my cabinet! :nice:
I want that wing! The Nurburg does not have it.

I have the Southern Speed & Marine Rat Rod, it was one of mine too, they're just too hard to find outside of the US.
As you're in the US check eBay, a seller on there still has them.

Yeah, I have them on my watch list but the price is too expensive for me until I get some play cash! Thanks for the info though!

Wow that Holden model is gorgeous!!!

My "holy grail" consists of two models:
  • 1/18 scale: Ricko 1954 Maserati A6GCS berlinetta
  • 1/43 scale: Spark 1937 Delage D6 #19 (4th @ Le Mans) - was a limited edition.
Hey, Lub, did you ever get your Maserati?  If not, I've got two of them - both NIB, never displayed, one with a box that's a little rough - which I'd be willing to sell.  Feel free to contact me via PM or directly at: Craigj3534@optonline.net  Cheers!

After thinking about it a lot - the Fairlady Z-L S30....but I think that is more inspired by my love for Wangan Midnight. So I greatly look forward to the future release by AUTOart but I honestly wont hold my breathe as I am betting that will be a very limited release.

I've got 2 grails, and both of them were loose when I bought them. Autoart Mitsubishi Evo IX Ralliart, which I bought for $200 just yesterday, and a Kyosho Ferrari F40 Light weight (black) which I bought at a local toy shop for around $55.
