I see this has been released (pics from CK, obviously):

Looks great in the photos and video, and it's nice to see breaks in the number roundel across the panel gaps.  My only reservation is the area where the windscreen meets the tarpaulin over the passenger seat, which looks a bit rough.  If anyone picks this up it would be great to see a review, I'm halfway to pulling the trigger.  Beats the hell out of the Shelby Collectibles version anyway.

got mine from its post office holding pen today.  Paint is beautiful, as is the car. Very happy with it.  A BBR-style leather seat finish, and maybe less plastic-y looking wire wheels would be nice, but paid £110 for it, which for models these days doesn't seem too bad.

Also have 1970 and 2015 on pre-order, just don't release them at the same tine, please Spark!

The Vantage was driven by Hong Kong's most well-known race car driver, plus it is a limited edition Spark only sold at the Macau GP, this thing won't be cheap at eBay or anywhere else. So unless you are a fan of the Vita livery or Darryl O'Young(or you must collect every single Vantages out there) its not worth the money IMO.

I wonder why Spark haven't added the number board, looks an unfinished livery without it
