1:14??? thats an odd scale. Remote Controlled? Is it diecast metal or resin/plastic?

Same here. I recollect 1:8 scale in diecast but never a 1:14. Like Cyrus said it might be a RC.
Looking at the last pic again, I believe it might be resin/plastic.

TheRagingBull can you confirm?

Nice looking car ragingbull. Actually when you put the scale I was dead sure this was an RC. 1:14 is a very odd scale for diecast but it is a very popular scale for RC cars.

So having fun already are you?

I shouldn't have typed the scale Still gotta put in batteries and see how this runs. Right now I am just admiring her

And about the Bburago Murci, I found it to be quite similar to the Maisto Gallardo that I have(in terms of finish and quality). Though, the suspension was softer in the Murci and also the steering was light. In the Gallardo, you have to turn the tyres to rotate the steering!! And the suspension is quite stiff too.

Thanks Siddhant! Yes, I was pleasantly surprised to see such detailing and finish on a RC! I love it! So what if it is not diecast
This is the brand/make, if anyone is interested: http://www.rastar.hk/rc.html

@theragingbull:I saw this at Gift Centre once.Looks good.@Dippy:More on the 1:18 Ferrari 458 Italia by BBR-It's yellow with black wheels,comes with a special leather base and is super exclusive(limited to 50 pieces worldwide).It is incredibly well detailed and absolutely flawless but it comes with a sealed body so no opening doors,bonnet or engine cover.If you're interested in picking one up from Automania,though,you might wanna hurry as I think they've got just one left.Cheers.

Hey

Thanks for the info PIMV. I'll definately be heading there to check the 458 and the other cars in stock. The Ferrari apart what is the pricing of the other 1:18s and 1:43s as compared to Gift Centre. BTW I need to pick up the Gullwing SL to give my SLS company. Do they have one?

Dippy, dont get the BBR. Believe me!! The HW Elite is INSANE!! Its possibly the best hotwheels after the 599XX. Completely floored me when I saw it.
