Incidentally for those who may be interested AutoArt, Modelart Bangalore still has stock of 2 beautiful Lotus Esprit cars - One in Yellow and One in Black. 1:18 Scale - both priced at 1975 Rs.
These have been in stock with them since 2004 Feb when they opened. I remember these cars very well from that time -and Rs 1975 for a Scale model was rather expensive in 2004 - not as much so in 2010!
The yellow one is perfect except for a tiny crack on its windshield so I guess if one pushes it a bit they will let one have it at a slight knock down rate.
Point is, considering that all their new 1:43 Scale models cost nothing less than Rs 1500/- these particular 1:18's are very reasonably priced. Also considering that all the other new 1:18's are priced around 3500,3995, 4995 etc.
The Detailing on those cars is rubbish. Not worth the AA name. I didnt buy them for precisely that reason!

personally I found the detailing and overall quality of those Lotus Esprits good enough at the price of Rs 1975/-! Like I said, considering that the 1:43's themselves cost Rs 1500/- these days!
