Isn't this a bit premature? We still have a month to go. To be honest, I would have liked to make a new thread myself seeing as I add most news and can never change the title or something :bawling:. Or is the new policy that recurring threads are made my admins?

If it's not die-cast, it won't have a crumple zone

No, not at all!

Better early than late!

Nice one, Matthew....:)

Can't wait to see what's in store from BBR in the 15'!!

With a model as sought after as that, they'd be mad to only do 100 of them, even 200 isn't that high a number. The thing is with them (and MR etc) is that they're always doing extra releases with limited numbers, they may even do one that's limited to 10 pieces or something. :twocents:

F**k you Photobucket.

Ok, I understand, but if they write 100 pz so be…..then write immediately 500 pz, how to do them incorrectly, when BBR for me lose confidence.

Anyone know where to get a Top Marques Maserati Granturismo Cabrio? No updates from carmodelz and I heard the coupe been sold out on ck models and other Euripean sites. Am I missing anything here? I thought Europe has not received any copies yet...

I hope they make the California T with some nice looking wheels on it! I like the ones that MR have used on some of theirs, the five spoke ones are boring!

Not too bad huh, the blue masser racer looks pretty good, but I think BBR is starting to blur the line between Topmarques and BBR premium quality, in the direction of TM. The interior of the Alfa 4C is dreadful, just a sticker for the whole buttons panel (my BBR 4C concept is miles ahead of this), making it all set for the TM treatment as soon as the BBR premium market is decreamed. Also comparing the blue speciale with teh blue masser, hardly any quality difference to make up for the 150 euro difference. In Asia there is no TM, just BBR with various price levels. The whole Toyota-Lexus scheme seems to be for the Western market.

Finally some 458 speciales without plain configurations! The silver one with red stripes and gold wheels is a stunner. The pink one also looks a bit chrome too, quite cool.

That hot pink looks HOT on a hot lady but not on the 458 Speciale LOL! The other Speciale combo is a nice touch.

Those Maserati's and Speciale's are great! But I think those Speciale are limited to just 3-5 if I'm not mistaken?

And those Maserati's....are they under BBR or TopMarques?

I don't know if it is a piece of news or already widely known, but I was chatting yesterday with a German model reseller and he told me that after the Ferrari 208/308 Turbo and the 288 GTO, BBR will make lots of F40 versions: street, GT, GTE, Competizione, Le Mans and some others they may find interesting. Unfortunatelly they still believe that it's too early to return to diecast so all of them will be made of used PET bottles :nice:.

I have every F40s that are (or was) available from Kyosho and Mattel, but hopefully BBR will make something like the IGOL F40 GTEs (in red).

That's news to me and I've been pitching that to BBR and MR for ages now, that's GREAT news to me. I'd love a resin F40 with low stance and sharp lines. Awesome!

Blue Maserati looks wonderful...

Matte Black California is a winner as well...

Artemis Green on a Ferrari?!?  What the hell they thinking?!

That's a Lambo color....And painted on anything BUT a Lambo should be considered a cardinal sin...:)

If they're made in Italy from their BBR18 handmade line, they will be pretty expensive. Those 365 California's, 250 GTOs and 275s are all beautiful pieces but way out of my price range.
A high end 288 GTO will be almost impossible to pass up on however :nice:
