Hey guys, looking for a little help. I'm looking at AUTOart 1991 Mazda 787B Le Mans Winners and I can't tell how many releases there have been, I see some with the winner trophy and some without. Anyone have any incite into this one?

As far as Im aware, there have been two releases, the original did not have the trophy, that came with the second release.
I don't think there is any difference between the two. I have the original which I bought in 2008, for US $ 150.00. The white version
is harder to find, and there is the matt black Stealth version which is not a real car. I have all three, love them.

Don't worry about the trophy, it looks awful. I ended up buying a couple of TSM made Le Mans trophies.

I'd buy whichever one I could get my hands on for the best price. I've got the original one and I paid a lot for it, then they re released it with the trophy etc, but I don't really care about that.

Also be aware with the original ones, most now are either missing things, like the wheel covers and roof antennas or they have broken mirrors and rear spoiler. In un damaged / like new condition cars still sell for a lot of money.

F**k you Photobucket.

There was the original release without display case or trophy. Then a re-release of that. Then the one with the case and trophy. I owned 2 of the 3. Sold my regular one as soon as the one with the trophy and case came out. Fantastic model
I mod stuff

From what I can tell they all should come with two antennas and front wheel covers, correct?

The prices on these from what I can find are hovering around $500 USD, that is a big chunk of change!
