Engine and wire wheels do look upgraded, also I think the headlamp/ sidelight configuration.....

...but what other differences are there to the earlier release??

The engine looks more detailed in a 'used more shades of paint' kind of way, but other from that it's hard to tell from the AUTOart photos. To be honest with you, I prefer the wheels on the old version.

I think the wheels look very wrong. I see one of these on a daily basis, they're well off.

Here are some pics of the older releases for comparison:











So it looks like the wiring in the engine is new, though not necessarily more accurate. If you look at this picture of a DB5 Vantage, the wires aren't nearly as prominent and certainly aren't bright green!

yeah I agree. The old wheels are better, but the bumper, head lights, carpet...etc..are upgraded. . Not sure if it's worth the $$, but still a nice piece to any collection.
