@Mav: My cousin paid around 30 USD + shipping to his place. Yes Kareena would be nice but what would I do with a 1:18

@Cyrus.: Supra looks great though the wheels could have been better. So how did you like the Shelby?

I think, the Wheels are going Black soon!! But, i am apprehensive about it as it will ruin the originality!! Also, i have always loved the Shelby...And i was considering buying this BUTT...Some people though i was MAD to get ANOTHER mustang!! So i bought the Supra!! This will be a future collectible for sure!

Two more pictures I forgot to add earlier.

@turbo V12 : That Jag you got is one of Autoart's finest till date.

@Mav: I heard none of the doors etc open on the Phantom. A total rip off really. Better still get the Kyosho Bentleys. You get the Arnage, Continental GT and Flying Spur.

If anyone is interested, please send me a pm for his contact no.Also there is a vintage RR which costs around Rs.10,000.

@Khanak: Can u pls confirm, if these are the same models u saw at fort the other day.
Like Cyrus said, these pictures are taken at Gift Centre. Theres a lot of confusion surrounding the 1:18 Phantom. I believe RR didnt approve of Kyosho or AutoArt to make a 1:18 Phantom and there isnt any news of a license given out yet.The company that makes this Phantom isnt really a well establishded company and hasnt actually acquired the rights to make the Phantom which makes the model unofficial. Buying this would be similar to buying a fake Ferrari Tshirt. Like Dippy said, the doors dont open and when I had a look at it, the rubber was comming off the wheels. The reason it is so expensive is that it is made of resin. Prices of this model are going up. The last time Gift Centre had it, it was going for around 25-30k and now its 44500. The next time he gets it, he expects it to be even more expensive.

@ Dippy : Nice Car.. But considering its from Hotwheels. The detailing looks a little less. May be its just the Lighting, can we have day light photographs .. Hope not asking for too much.

@sinner: Yes sinner the details are good its from the Elite series like your Scuderia. These pics are taken at home since everyone was pounding me to put pics of what I got. Day light pictures in the open will follow soon. Also pictures of the Reventon coming soon as well.

@khanak: Youre right. Will make sense to pick up a Phantom only once it is made by AA or Kyosho after aquiring the rights. BTW pics are up of the GT500 for you

How would this compare to the AA Shelby?

Also I believe RR will go above AA and Kyosho and make Exoto or CMC make the Phantom.

@ khanak: The quality is very good for a HotWheels. They have raised their standard since they started the Elite series. Only thing which I noticed missing in the HW Shelby is the ariel in the front on the AA which is not present in my car. Otherwise the flooring, boot etc has velvet carpet type material etc... And the price difference alot the HW for 30 USD while the AA was for 72 USD. Paint finish is good too.
