Default Range Rover Sport

Got my hands on the Range Rover Sport yesterday! 1:18 Maisto!
Its so tempting to take it off-road!

The only reason I dont buy this is as the Back Doors Do not open. If they did, I would buy it in a second.

@siddvi - Thanks! the other ones are not striped with the signature Paul Smith Pattern. thats the reason I simply had to have the Mini because I love the Paul Smith quirky stuff. One of mine is a Brit Flag MINI and the other a Brit Flag London Taxicab, both from Paul Smith, made by Corgi and sold through Harrods.
Havent yet bought the Paul Smith Beatles Tribute cars but even those only have pics of the fab four on them - no stripes.

@superselect - was sure you'd spot anything to do with Brit classics of a certain era!
thanks!

Bought a Porsche 911 Techart Turbo Today. Good Detailing, but very expensive. It comes with the Techart Kit, Wheels, interiors, etc.
