Very impressive. Actually am looking toward their P1 GTR. Hopefully the price on that will not sky rocket and will be similar to this.

A full chassis and engine, for the price this is impressive. AUTOart's recent signature releases don't even look this good.

Apart from CMC nobody's releases look this good.

I think they look quite nice, but I'm not convinced, I just don't think they're as good as I was expecting them to be :dunno:

Meshed grill at the lower front! When was the last time a 1:18 modern Bentley has this feature? The Arnage R from Minichamps?

They look very nice (especially the magenta one) but how much are these going to cost? And are they going to be more worthwhile than the GTS version jsut because they open up? I don't think so.

I'm interested in these 3 colors.... Blue/Passion Pink/Pale Blue...because they are really dramatic looking contrast wise against Black wheels & Carbonfiber bits on this car..

Of course they are worth more. They are DIE-CAST, fully opening ones too. It's good when someone tries, but it's still bad that they do. No, we don't all love sealed chunks of resin and still want old-school die-casts. And this is what AR seems intent on delivering. 160 euro doesn't sound as much when compared to AUTOart's plastic crap, so consider me convinced.

Wow, thx for that pic Dave. The green and blue ones look crazy.

The Blue for sure!!...but I actually am sure of my manhood and I  think Passion Pink is the hottest color on this model! :occasion14:

Does that mean they will be sold under the minichamps brand?

Interesting photos, thanks as ever for sharing. Really looking forward to seeing these models first hand, though I'm waiting for the McLarens so will likely be seeing other people's impressions beforehand.

Er, couple of small issues - is the model LHD?  The real car is RHD (as you'd expect from a car with a UK registration).  Also, the interior is closer to black, not grey with black seat inserts.

Posted Image

All I can guess is that either the new overseas buyer converted it to have the steering wheel on the wrong side - or that AR used the same tooling as they're using for other Defenders and forgot this one is unique...

Umm, yeah it should be RHD! It looks pretty good overall though, but I don't know if good enough to warrant the price ? :dunno:

Looks pretty good, I'm seeing it between Norev and AUTOart, about $120 ish.  What are they asking for it?
