Seems decent for $5.99 for first issue and $12.99 for second. The rest will retail at $21.99. Bugatti Chiron coming in 3rd issue and there will be more soon and some interesting gifts for subscribers. Apparently UK had this since late last year and they are up to 14th now according to their FB site. The LaFerrari somehow reminds me of the Bburago 1/43 signature. Considering Bburago has been producing models for various mags I am not surprised if they sourced this particular one from Bburago? This new series reminds me of the previous 1/43 supercars series under GE Fabbri which stopped abruptly after 5 issues. The biggest improvement I can see is that the models from this new series have disc calipers.

Here are some pics of the previous series which came out in 2011.

The price is not bad and they look pretty decent for 1:43, too good to have been made by BBurago actually.

I'd say they're probably Ixo/Altaya as this article here suggests.

I bought the McLaren P1 you have from my local supermarket back in September 2018 when it was released. Not bad for £5.99.

As a side note. I actually cleaned out 2 different news agents of their LaFerrari's at $5.99. (I got 8 in the end)  I'll keep the display cases and give the cars away as stocking stuffers for my girlfriends nephews at xmas.

For the record, I've also disassembled one and painted it white.

I couldn't find any hint of a manufacturer anywhere on it either,  but from everything I can tell I think it is the burago model made under license. It seems to have identical detail on everything from the misproportioned front openings, the detail on the wheels to the plastic seatbelts.

Thats a pretty smart idea to get those perspex cases. They fit nicely onto some of the 1/43 plinth. I should have spent my $7.80 on another LaFerrari when i bought the second issue instead of the useless lotto. :( I am not the type that buy lottery regularly but considering i made an effort to stop by newsagency for the mag thought it might be my lucky day and turned out it wasn't. I dont have any 1/43 Bburago but that LaFerrari definitely looks like the one from their signature range. And the so called premium subscription 1/24 gift cars pretty sure they are Bburago too. Probably excess stock from the 1/24 Ferrari partwork mag which ran in Italy a while back.
