Default Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

Yet another addition in my collection, have been waiting for a Veyron since long, specially this Black Carbon/Orange one.
The detailing/ paint job/ interior finish is simply superb. Would rate this one 10/10. One of the best in my collection. <<Zonda R undoubtedly still tops the list>>

Ever since it was launched, I was smitten by the style quotient of Mercedes-Benz CLA. When a close friend got the chance to visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, I took the chance to add one to my scale model collection. Just like the original car, the CLA looks stunning even in 1:43 scale.

Manufacturer: Schuco
Scale: 1:43
Model: Mercedes-Benz CLA
Colour: Universe Blue
Cost: 29.90 Euro

Pardon the low-res pics, these were taken from my mobile.

Latest addition to my Garage.
Please add a "R" to the name imprinted on the car.
Specs: Plastic Body
Pricing: Rs.150/- Only !! (Yes, you read it right).

I was absolutely bowled over by the paint job. It is just superb. Due to being a plastic body, some features are not prominent, but overall it stands out well within the group of Die-Cast scale models.

Can update you with the photo over the weekend.
Hello friend. Don't want to be a pest, but did you find time for a picture? Maybe just put your hand on the model and take a snap with your phone, or something. I don't need anything extravagant.

Thank you very much!

Though the post wasn't meant for me still sharing couple of snaps of said diecast, hope this serves your purpose.

Thanks very much! I thought it would be larger than that, but this isn't terribly tiny either.

The same is also available on Snapdeal and also a 20% discount offer on some Promo Code is going on.
So effectively it will cost you 1996/- INR from Snapdeal.
