No, it's an iconic sports car from a tractor manufacurer.

Well here is my contribution to this thread. I purchased this scale model few years back but I don't know its make. Can anyone identify this car model ?
Apart from this I have nearly 70+ die cast car models ranging from old fiat and beetle models to VW,Chevrolet,BMW,Mercedes,Tata, Ford etc.
Will post the pictures of them as soon as I get hold of a new Digital camera.

You got it right, it's a Lamborghini muira 1968 (with the famous eye lashes) 1:18 Scale Orange Color by BBurago Daimond Collection Rs. 1395 from Mumbai (yet to arrive).

Welly one is an 1971 SV which is without the eye lashes, so have gone for BBurago.

Hi samsag, that appears to be a Mercedes of some vintage.
Welcome to team BHP, this is a superb forum, and a crazy scale model thread.
Your avatar pic is nice, you seem to be a Fiat fan. Would love to see your collection, especially the Fiat models !!

Wah ravi bhai spot on, I did some googling and seems that the model looks like 1928ish.

Thanks!

It's a rebuild of a 1:12 Tamiya kit that I first built over 20 years ago. I found it all broken up in a box in my parents home. So, over the Christmas break, I decided to see if I could salvage it. Lot of time was spent in rebuilding broken parts or scratch-building missing parts.

You can see the box-art in the last pic. I'm trying to get the decals so that I can finish it up.

The first few pics are of the primered body, frame, and cowling. I did not remove the old (bad) paint completely though I sanded it down quite a bit -- I should have. And, I did not have Tamiya Clear top coat -- so just rubbed down with rubbing compound and used 3M imperial hand glaze
