The title of the topic says it all. They are almost the same price where I want to buy it, and I'm way to poor to afford the AUTOart one :lol

Sorry cut off on that last post. I don't have any info on the Gate as i haven't seen one in the flesh, but I have seen both the AUTOart and Maisto. Obviously AUTOart is better but i felt that both got the proportions and stance down well. Maisto's seems a bit tall in the rear with a bit too much droop up front but still displays well. For me, given I am mostly into german cars and not a huge Lambo fan, the maisto worked and was under 10 bucks. If the gate really is a less detailed AUTOart, i'd go for that as it probably won't have the fit/shutline problems that most maistos tend to have.

Get the Gate. The Gate does NOT have windows, but the mold and paint is excellent. Tires and rims are waaay better than Maistos too. Well I always hated Maistos...and I'm really happy with my Gate, so my opinion might be biased :giggle

I bought my son both a Hot Wheels and Maisto Murcielago. I think the Hot Wheels one is slightly better constructed than the Maisto. So there's another possible option for you. The Maisto brake discs look to "chromey". That said, the Hot Wheels version fender gap with the wheel is a bit too much in my opinion. Maisto's looks a bit tighter.

I'd go with the Gate, Shawn, as it's largely an AUTOart. :mine
