How awesome! This looks super promising. With how reliable LCD is, it seems that we're going to get this Zonda before the Almost Real ones! Sure it isn't a Tricolore or F, but its still super cool

I love me a convertible Zonda, but for some reason the Barchetta just doesn't float my boat. I wonder if it is just the rear wheel covers

For me it's always: street car > track car.

So even if this model eventually has a bit less details than the AUTOart Zonda R, I would go for the street car.
Also the AUTOart Zonda R is >400 euro nowadays and this LCD is likely 200-250 euro.

So it's a no brainer for me.

BTW, is that blue/white seat cloth inspired by the SLR 722 and one of the CLK GTR street versions (the Maisto one has similar seat cloth)?

The chequered cloth is an allusion to the trim in the Mille Miglia winning SLR no 722 driven by Moss/'Jenks' (as it the SLR 722 model itself)

I'm not a fan of these 'barchetta'/'spyder' things generally so wouldn't ever consider buying a diecast of one, but if those are photos of a painted LCD model, it looks excellent!

As this is a car that you either lover or hate, I still haven't warmed to it. I hated the look of the Lamborghini Veneno when it came out, but I quite like it now and have a couple of models of it. I just can't warm to this car, so I doubt I will ever buy a model of it.

Hey Craig, It grew on me...I really hated teh standard model when it came out, but after buying so many detailed 1/64ths, I had just started to wonder what would all of those details look like scaled up? Especially after getting LCD's 600LT & Pagani. Looking forward to this one and fingers crossed for a 720S or 765LT as well!
