Here, I am comparing an approx $45 1/18 Hot Wheels (foundation/heritage) Ferrari FF to an approx. $90 1/18 Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari FF.
See for yourself (TOP: HOT WHEELS; BOTTOM: HOT WHEELS ELITE)
Attention, the first pic shows the interior of the black HWF Ferrari FF, which has red seats. The red FF has an all black interior:
Conclusion: For double the price, you get half-raised door window panels on the Hot Wheels Elite, more expensive looking rims, perforated grill on the exterior vents, a thinner looking front grill due to black paint, a painted interior, a hood that opens with a detailed engine, a trunk that opens, defroster on the rear windshield, a Ferrari FF license plate on the back, and, if you look closely, slightly different (more detailed) tail lights with accents as well.
Here's where things get even more obvious: in most places you cannot buy the HWF Ferrari FF for just $45. Usually they sell in the 50s, meaning they are more than just half the price. Therefore, I can only recommend to get the Hot Wheels Elite, because you're getting so many more features for just 30something more bucks.
One small catch, though: Given that this HWE does not have carpeting, and if you're a guy who paints miniatures and therefore has paints in his house, you could buy the HWF, take it apart, paint the interior to look like the HWE, put it back together, and then you'd only have to contend with a hood and trunk that dont open, no window panel glass, no defroster, and no perforated grills. In such a case it's your call which version you want to buy, though keep in mind that painting is a lot of work, especially because beige requires several thin coats to look good, and you'll still not have a "Ferrari" and "FF" badge on the dashboard and rear license plate.
