I know Hot Wheels 1:18th's aren't held in high regard by too many folks, however, I think their large scale cars are good models for the collector on a budget. I recently found this Whips release Ferrari Enzo in pearl white. Nice representation of the car for just over $20.00 US. (the pics washed out a little, it's more pearl than these shots show it to be)

Hey anyone know if I can just swap the bottom half or just the wheels so I can put the regular Enzo rims onto that white Whips one?

I've only seen the chrome red and this pearl white in the Whips. There's a Ferrari red with normal wheels as well. And come to think of it, there may be a black normal wheel version out there, too.

Those are my plans, atleast when I find a few of them :danbana

I have been waiting on a white Enzo for the longest.

Now I just need to acquire a white F50 and 360 and then my Ferrari collecting will be done..atleast for the moment. :giggle

Unfortunately, you can't just swap rims on the Enzo's. The front rims come off easily but the rear rims won't come off the rear alxe. I've broken a rim trying. The rear axle will have to be cut in order to remove it.

However, you can swap the chassis's of the Enzo very easily. I've done it with the metallic red Enzo. Both chassis are the same. The hardest part, which wasn't too difficult, is the bottom air intakes behind the doors. The vents are glued to the chassis's. I had to use a flat exacto blade to slowly break the glue's bond and remove them from the chassis. The vents are also mounted on 2 pegs which will probally break no matter how careful you are. Once removed you'll have to reglue the vents onto the other chassis.

I'll be looking for the white Enzo!!! :cheers

Can you imagine the kind of mentality it would take for:
1. Spending over $1 million for a road car, and
2. then putting non-standard ( and outrageous ) tires and wheels on it? :giggle

Have you ever watched the Unique Whips TV show, it might give you a clue. Larger wheels/tires are fine with me if they just fill out the wheel wells, no hiding under the fenders; look at my Cadillac Evoq concept car.

I have added this model to my collection and I like everythign about it.

The wheels are not overly dramatic like some tuners and it displays well without being overly noticeable.

I guess its an aquired taste :tempted

Definitely looks cool. I'm too strapped for cash now to buy it, and I already have a Hot Wheels Enzo, but I still want it.
