It seems it's been forever since I added a new Kyosho model, their latest release is the Rolls Royce Ghost. This is an exceptional model, the amount of detail and the level of execution is second to none. The list of detail or functional items includes; opening rear and front bonnets, functional sunroof, adjustable seats, front and rear centre consoles with accessible compartments, and rear compartments in the front seats. I hope I didn't miss anything? There are rumours about that Kyosho is suffering from hardship and may be another dying breed of a short list of die cast manufactures, let's hope this is not the case after such a beautiful release. Long live Kyosho and the hobby! Enjoy the pics!

Congrats on the add!

I'm really liking the Kyosho RR Ghost, but finding it hard to justify the price atm. I'll wait for the other colors before pulling the trigger.

Looks great, however I'm more excited with the white one shown in Nurnberg. I am not 100% convinced that I like this particular 2 tone color scheme that does not continue across the entire roof/trunk.

Rolls Royce is one of the marques of the year in 1/18 scale

Congrats on the nice model, I too hope that Kyosho manages to stay afloat.

Does this have the wheel center caps that stay upright even as the wheel turns? That's my favorite thing about the real cars... :D

Yes the wheel caps stay in place as the wheel rotates.

@Kraftig, any paint issues on yours? I've got rough paint and some blistering in some spots. Just haven't gotten around to polishing it yet. You also forgot to mention the umbrellas hidden in the front doors that work with a push/lock spring mechanism.

I have the black one as well Nathan, and it has no paint issues at all.

Thanks for the pics !!
I'm pretty much sure pics, however clear and crisp they might be, really dont do justice to the high-level interior detailing on this one. Lets hope the Phantom too has such details
