Another from Altaya's series of cars from the '80s, and in my opinion, one of the best so far. This 505 GTi dates from 1984, although, the 505 range debuted in 1979.

I think Altaya have captured the elegant lines of the car very well - I think Pininfarina had some input into the design of the 1:1. Whilst not up to Minichamps standard, these models are substantially cheaper. Having said that, there is some excellent detailing - the front grille in particular, is nicely photoetched with a great little lion badge attached. There are a couple of, very minor, flaws in the paintwork, but overall, it is a decent little model.



:cheers

That's absolutely gorgeous, Steve - I think the 505 is one of the best looking sedans from that era.
