@blackadder: No. Its the standard Special Edition Spyder. The picture doesn't do justice to the well defined interior due to high exposure.

Here is a somewhat better one:

Hey Guys , some updated from my side... I so wanted to buy a 1:18 for quite some time, but it just seems like my luck (scale Model wise) is very bad...

Anyways to break the bad luck, I did something that i never though i would ... Baught MeSelf 2 New Ray 1:72 Aircrafts
1- Lockheed F117 Nighthawk Stealth Figher

2- An F22

They are not all that good... Size is somewhere between 1:24 and 1:18 Cars ,Made of Plastic , But it looks good & not to forget reasonabley priced ( just Rs 275.00/-)

Will post pics soon.

Maisto's 1:18 scale BMW M5 road car and Moto GP safety car versions have reached stores here. Do check them out. Also there are new colors in Maisto's ProRodz series.
Thanks for the post Vinee. That sure looks better than my Gallardo.
Congratulations on the new planes Sinner. I happened to see them at the Inorbit Shoppers Stop and they sure looked good.

Saw the Maisto M5 on Ebay. It seemed to have yellow parking lights. I dont think they are yellow on the real car. Kyosho also makes the M5.

Kyosho ofcourse makes the better model. Also, the Maisto M5 looked slightly smaller and narrower than it has to be. The paint job on the one I saw is of suspect quality. So you guys better be inspecting one first hand before you splurge on it.

Guess someone has picked the one I saw. Anyways the sales guys at both places know pretty much zero when you ask them about model cars.

Plently of new diecast if you like the ProRodz series. There was a metallic white CLS and a nice smoke grey SL500. Also the blue and silver tarted up S55 AMG. One of these days I will pick up the blue prorodz S55 and convert it to a normal road car with proper wheels.
I dont think the guys from Gift Centre will be there at the show. Thats what I had been told earlier today. I dont know who else will be at the show selling diecast if not Gift Centre. Keeping my fingers crossed.
