Who makes these? and what other cars do they offer. I know it must have cost you the earth, but imagine the superdetailing potential of this one..........

it has scorpio wheel caps, looks as if tata made a smaller version of the 1210 SE or a 709 chasis with a SE styled body.. qutie funny looking but really nice one to collect and modify on.

very good catch.

No, it is not on any 709 chassis. It is the same old 1210 truck. But Centy toys, the manufacturer uses the same wheels for all its scale models. Cost cutting!

The only thing I dont like about the Hotwheels 599 & 612 is the wheels and the above ones are Hotwheels too? Wheels are again spoiling the whole look of the car.

IMO, F430 is the best Hotwheels. Period.

Yes. For an RC it is quite detailed. Thats why I choose to get it. You may have noticed the doors, Dickey seat etc. quite detailed. The finish is great too not plasticky as some RC are.
