Thanks for your comments, guys.
Time for the next car from my collection, MR Collection Bugatti Centodieci in white.

The Centodieci, which means 110 in italian, is based on the Chiron platform and was introduced in August 2019.
It is 20 kg lighter than the Chiron and it has the same 8.0 liter W16 quad turbo engine producing 1578 bhp (1176 kW) @ 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 1600 Nm (1180 lb-ft) @ 2000 rpm.
0-100 km/h (0-62 mp/h ) @ 2.4 sec.
0-200 km/h (0-124 mp/h ) @ 6.1 sec.
0-300 km/h (0-186 mp/h ) @ 13.1 sec.
Top speed:
380 km/h ( 240 mp/h ) electronially limited.
The production is limited to 10 cars and the price is €8 million, $ 8.9 million each.

The Bugatti Centodieci is an hommage to the Bugatti EB110 and also a celebration to the Bugatti brand.
Based on the Chiron it has taken some design ques from the EB110 such as the 5 round air intakes behind the doors, also the small horse shoe grill in the front.
Narrow headlights with LED daytime running lights and sharp grooves creates an aggressive design.
At the rear there are 8 tail lights along with matt black quad exhausts pipes on each side of the diffuser and a complete underbody spoiler and a fixed rearwing.

The car was planned to go into production in 2021 at the Molsheim Atelier in France.

Time for some pics:

And some personal thoughts about the car.
I think that MR has done a good job at replicating the car, the paint finish is smooth the wheels and tires is also good although the tires is missing the lettering.
The carbon fibre work is good with a gloss finish.
I can´t say anything about the interior because of the heavily tinted glass, but since this model most likely represents a concept car without any interior trim fitted to it.
Comparing this Bugatti with the Ferrari 812 GTS is quite interesting because both cars are made by MR i have to say that they are doing a way better job with the Bugatti.
The panel gaps and carbon fibre work also looks a lot better on the Bugatti.

Thanks for watching.

Thanks for your comments, guys.
vulpex, i will try to get some pics of the Bugatti and the Koenigsegg together at some point.

Time for the next car from my collection, MR Collection Bugatti La Voiture Noire.
The La Voiture Noire is based on the Chiron and was presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as a one-off special car.
The design of the car and it is a celebration to the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic.
The car is hand made of carbon fibre and it is designed by Bugatti´s Etienne Salome.
A trim piece running from the front to rear of the car recalls the dorsal fin found on the Type 57 SC.
The car has a floating windscreen with masked a-pillars unique wing mirrors, LED taillight strip.
The La Voiture Noire shares designsimilarities to the Bugatti Rembrandt concept, a cancelled front engined grand tourer powered by the W 16 engine.

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire has the same 8.0 litre quad turbo charged W 16 from the Chiron producing 1479 bhp ( 1103 kW) it also has the 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and 4 wheel drive system but it is heavily revised to allow for a more relaxed drivingexperinece.
It also has softer dampers and a revised chassi.

So far there are no performance numbers but the top speed and acceleration times are most likely slower than the Chiron.
The car was sold for $18.68 millions making it one of the most expensive cars ever produced.
The car that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show is a concept car abnd the final product was going to take another two and a half year to build.
The show car had electric motors instead of an engine for easy maneuverability.

Time for some pics and i start with the concept car:

And the model:

And some personal thoughts of the car.
I am not sure what i think about the real car but i would not say that it is a good looking car, the proportions of the car makes it look a bit funny especially at the rear it is bit flat or maybe back heavy.
And the painted parts on the tires is odd to say the least.

The model is well made with a smooth paintjob.
The wheels and brakes are aslo good, the tires does not have any markings.
I don´t have anything to say about the interior because of the blacked out windows.

Thanks for watching.

Time for the next car from my collection, FrontiArt Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut in Battle Grey.
The Jesko Absolute was presented at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, or should i say the digital reveal, alogside the Gemera.
The Jesko Absolut has the same 5.0 litre twin turbo V8 as the Jesko producing 1281 bhp ( 955 kW) @ 7800 rpm and a maximum torque of 1000 Nm ( 738 lb-ft) @ 2700-6170 rpm on normal pump fuel.
On E85 the engine produce 1603 bhp ( 1195 kW) and maximum torque of 1500 Nm ( 1106 lb-ft) @ 5100 rpm.
The gearbox is also the same 9-speed Koenigsegg Light Speed Transmission developed in house.

Other changes compared to the Jesko is that the Jesko Absolut does not have the Triplex suspension at the front.
The aerodynamics of the car is also different with the front winglets removed on top of the front arches the louvers are smoother the rear wheels have removable covers for high speed stability.
The car is also slightly elongated with a rear extension which adds 85 mm ( 3 in) of additional lenght.
The rear wing is removed and replaced with 2 fins which enable a reduction of downforce from 1400 kg (3086 lb) to 150 kg ( 331 lb) and a drag coefficent of Cd 0.278.

Koenigsegg claims that the top speed is in excess of 483 km/h ( 300 mp/h) with theoretical speeds as high as 531 km/h to 563 km/h ( 330 mp/h to 350 mp/h) in the right conditions.

Time for some pics:

And some personal thouughts of the car.
As usual FrontiArt has done a great job replicating the real car.
The paint is smooth and the carbon fibre work is awesome.
The tires are missing the markings, the brakes are well replicated the same goes for the interior.

Thanks for watching.

Vulpex, you were right they do look good together thanks for the tip.
Thanks for watching.

Thanks for your comments, guys.
Time for the next car from my collection, AUTOart McLaren Senna in Trophy Kyanos Blue.

The McLaren Senna was presented online in December 2017 with the official presentation at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
It is also the 3rd car in the McLaren ultimate series the other ones are the F1 and the P1.
The car is named after the Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna.

McLaren´s main focus with the Senna is to achieve faster lap times on the race circuit.
The Senna is roughly based on the 720S, using a modified carbon fibre monocoque and engine.
The Senna uses a modified 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 with the code name M840TR which produces 789 bhp ( 588 kW) @ 7250 rpm and a maximum torque of 800 Nm ( 590 lb-ft) @ 5500 rpm.
It has a 7-speed dual clutch transmission and it is rear wheel drive.
There is no electric engine in the Senna.
The dry weight of the Senna is 1198 kg ( 2641 lb) which gives the car a power to weight ratio of 658 bhp ( 491 kW) per ton.
0-100 km/h (0-62 mp/h) @ 3.1 sec.
0-200 km/h (0-124 mp/h) @ 6.8 sec.
0-300 km/h (0-186 mp/h) @ 19.8 sec.
Top speed:
340 km/h ( 211 mp/h) redline limited.

The Senna has many aerodynamic elements such as the large adjustable double-element rear wing which is electronically operated with various settings to provide the optimum performance and it also acts like an airbrake.
double element diffusor, F1 inspired roof scoop, front and side air intakes, rear air louvres and large front fenders.

The brakes on the Senna is a new generation of Brembo Carbon ceramic brakes with a new compound that has a better thermal conductivity than before they are also smaller and lighter.
The wheels are centerlock alloys with Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires.

On the inside the cars interior consists of exposed carbon fibre and alcantara and the seats can be upholstered in alcantara or leather depending of the customers choice.

Every McLaren Senna will be handbuilt at the McLaren Production Centre i Woking, Surrey England with a production run of 500 cars.
The list price of the car is £750000.
The deliveries started in Q3 2018.

Time for some pics, normally i would start with the real car but for some reason i don´t think that i have any so i can only show the model this time:

And some personal thoughts of the car.
I think this is one of AUTOarts best models they have done a great job of replicating the car with all the bonkers aeroparts and strange shapes.
The paint is amazing especially when you see it in the sun, the carbon fibre is good but it would be even better if they have used tampoprint.
The stance is spot on, the wheels and tires are good and so is the brakes.
And i have to mention the design, this car is not pretty this is function over form.
The car is bulit for one thing only, that is being the most extreme aerobased car and it is still road legal.
I think that Shmee150 have the best description for it "It is scientifically beautiful".
I think that this car will be a classic in the future.

Thanks for watching.

Thanks for your comments, guys.
Marios, about the MR Collection Bugatti Centodieci i think that MR Collection/MR Atelier still have a few left, but they are asking a lot for them.

Time for the next car from my collection, AUTOart Aston Martin DBS Superleggera in Zaffre Blue.

The DBS Superleggera was introduced in 2018 as a replacement for the Vanquish it is based on the DB11.
The front of the DBS has a new bumper with a large grille for improved cooling with 2 air extractors on the side for brake cooling and there are 2 vents on the hood to aid engine cooling.
Other changes compared to the DB11 is new headlights and also rear lights.
On the boot there is a fixed spoiler/ lip and the rear bumper is also changed with a quad exhaust.
It is available as a coupe and convertible.

The engine is the 5.2 liter twin turbo V12 now producing 715 bhp ( 533 kW) @ 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 900 Nm ( 664 lb-ft) @ 1800-5000 rpm.
The transmission is the new 8-speed ZF 8HP95.

0-100 km/h (0-62 mp/h ) @ 3.4 sec.
Top speed: 340 km/h ( 211 mp/h).

Time for some pics and i start with the real car:

And the model:

And some comparison pics with the DB11:

And some thoughts about the model.
I think that AUTOart has done a great job replicating the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
The paint is stunning, when i first saw the pics of the car i thought that it looked a bit dull, but in real life, especially in the sun it is awesome.
The color is a dark metallic blue.
The wheels and tires are really good and it is complete with the Pirelli markings on the side.
The brakes are also good.
I think that the interior is good but if i should spec the car i would likely go with a lighter interior.
It is fully carpeted both in the cabin and also in the boot/trunk.
As already pointed out by others it is a bit fiddly to open and close the hood on the car.
If you are a fan of Aston Martin i think you should add it to your collection.

Thanks for watching.

Thanks for your comments, guys.
Time for the next car from my collection, AUTOart Pagani Huayra BC in Viola/PSO.
This is more an answer to Marios question in the "What did you buy today" section from last week.

You asked me about my thoughts of AA Pagani.
First of all i bought this because of the color it is simply awesome.
But here are the more negative thoughts.
I think that AUTOart has cut corners on this model because it is totally missing some parts that should definitely be there.
There are no storage compartments under the engine cover, the real car has them.
The engine, at least compared with the older AA version of the Huayra, is lacking some details.
It could be more refined, it is also missing the working suspension.
On the other hand all the parts stays open if you want to display it like that, and yes you want to do that.
My advice to you if you really want the Huayra BC go for the LCD Models when/if they release it in Rosso Dubai.
It is superior to the AA version and it is also a lot cheaper, especially if you can source it from a chinese dealer.

Since i already have posted the technical data when i presented the BBR Huayra BC i will only post pics this time:

And as a comparison with the LCD Models Pagani Huayra:

And some personal thoughts about the model/models.
AA has done a good job, the paint is really good the carbon fibre work is still a mix between decals and molded plastic.
The shutlines are really tight, the interior looks nice but since it is black there are not many details.
As mentioned above the biggest letdown is the missing parts on the car.

LCD Models on the other hand is superior to AA in just about everything.
The paint is awesome, the carbon fibre work is also really good.
The interior is a really good representation of the real car.
It has the Pirelli script on the tires.
Every opening part of the car stays up when opened.
It has working suspension.

If LCD decides to release the Pagani Huayra in Viola/PSO i will sell the AA version.
Hope this answers some of your questions.

Thanks for watching.

First of all this was one of the best reviews-comparison i've ever read! I never thought (after i've bought two versions of zondaR from AA) that there will be another company not only to face AA in Pagani's but also to win!!!!
Yesterday I had an offer to buy the AA Pagani rosso Dubai for 255E and after i read all these details today, i just refused. I see your "macro" photos of the carbon details in LCD version and they look absolutely stunning! My next stop is LCD. Period!
Secondly, the AA in Viola/PSO looks awesome. Excluding the missing details, if you see the model at first glance, it looks great. Apart from collector i'm also a hobbyist photographer, and i can tell you for sure that this pagani is photogenic as much as it gets!
Congrats for your review and for the new model!

Thank you for your comment, Marios and also sorry for the late reply.

Time for the next cars from my collection, AUTOart and FrontiArt Koenigsegg One:1.
These 2 are the last of the Koenigsegg One:1 in my collection which means i now have the 7 cars that have been produced.
Since i have already posted the technical specs of the car earlier i am just going to show the pics this time.

Lets start with the AUTOart in Moon Grey with orange accents which was the first One:1 produced.

And the FrontiArt in Blue tinted carbon with beige/tan interior and silver wheels:

And some personal thoughts about the models.
Starting with the AUTOart, compared with the white One:1 the panels are better aligned on this the white one has some issues with the roof the grey one does not.
The paint is good, the carbon fibre is still moulded plastic instead of tampoprinted.
Wheels, brakes and tires are good.
The interior could be better but since the real car is almost black it might be hard to replicate it.

The FrontiArt is better especially the carbon fibre work and the paint is smooth.
The interior is stunning together with the blue exterior.
Wheels, brakes and tires are better than the AUTOart version.
The only downside is that the FrontiArt is a closed car and maybe the pricetag.

Thanks for watching.
