Torture tested Exotics

i used to have fun with these when i was young. i found these lying in the corner in the loft.

IIRC, these beauties were torture tested:

1. Forced head-on collisions
2. rear-ended by cricket bat
3. under water sprints
4. these were extensively used for SS rallies (rocky walls, mud, sand)

these two will be restored in future - presenting the Bburago Mercedes 190E and the F40

There is one in Shoppers Stop bandra since the last two years. It is a stupid thing to buy. Unless you have a theme collection.

@ yamdoot, nice jeep
@ stratos, the front door glass moves.

btw, my 1960 cadillac hardtop. got this car from a shop way back in 2000. it was in a tremendous condition. the restoration is 85% complete as you can see from the pictures. it was made in JAPAN in 1965. a total TIN model with a R/C (WITH CORD). UNFORTUNATELY the R/C is gone. more pics later.

The detailing on the Lancia is quite good. I really wish it had the antenna and the spoiler but this road going version doesnt.

I went to Giftcentre today and was pretty impressed with them. They were closing their shop but still allowed me to come in and take my time while I chose what I wanted. They have a few Auto Arts, Kyoshos and Bburagos. A welcome change from the same old models at Shoppers Stop and Lifestyle.

Picked up an S Klasse (my first Auto Art), a Reventon and a Beetle.

They had 3 1:18 Phantoms which cost 44,500 each.
