This looks really cool! Someone in France made 50 custom cars off Maisto's R8 body. If it weren't for the price, I'd grab one.

Holy molly! The job looks really well done, but that price just kills it.

I wish Maisto would do more R8 liveries...

Not that I've read of. That could be such a cash cow!! I bet there's a licencing issue that's preventing Maisto from going ahead. Someone should go e-mail them to see what the story is.

That looks great but you'd have to really, really, really like it to hand over that kind of money and I don't. :giggle

A couple of years back, there was a small UK company that modded Maisto's R8s to look like the Gulf R8 and it was rather nicely done. It was on the pricy side but not as much as this LM 2004 winner. :cheers

Not to long before the finish, I think 3 hours, the winning Audi caught fire at there pits stop. A bit of fuel reached the hot parts of the car. The driver got out fast, they put out the fire in seconds and away they went. I was hanging above with my camera on tribune 34 right above the pits.

:iagree What an awesome place to be perched to take pictures peter! Just out of curiosity, what exactly is a "tribune"?

If you don't mind me asking, how much money did it cost for you to have access to the tribune area for taking photographs?

:feedback Thanks in advance
