oh nice. Checked out the price for the same and it seems it's selling for about $45 which is really inexpensive. I also saw a Lambo Estoque concept by Mondo. You have that too?

Guys, the prices at Automania are much lower for equivalent stuff at Gift centre. Do compare.
Except that Automania doesn't stock any Maisto / Bburago etc. Only Minichamps, Autoart, Schuco, Franklin Mint, and such high-end stuff. But Automania's prices for these are definitely way lower than Gift centre.

Lambo Estoque model ainit crap the finish is quiet good just like the LP560, I think with the Zonda you just got unlucky. Cause I have seen the model and the finish looks good.

Yup, i have the Cinque & the quality is way better than Maisto.

Can someone please post the address for Automania. The one listed on their website and the one that was posted on this thread a couple of days back are different.

I have seen LOADS of reports in DCX which says otherwise. Although, sometime in the future, I am going to get the Zonda and Estoque anyways. They can just sit in my new showcase which will be designed back home.
