This is the brand new (in May 2009) 1/18 model of the Lamborghini Reventon made by well known AutoArt, and honestly I have been waiting a long time for a decent scale model of this amazing, limited edition super car.
I had the luck of being present at the IAA in Frankfurt back in 2007 when the real Reventon was unveiled, and in real life it sure leaves an impression of sheer power and angular looks ... a thing that is very nicely reproduced by AutoArt on this scale model.
Note that AutoArt actually has struts on the engine cover and the front hood, so they stay open very well, even the upwards opening doors stay upwards now, they even 'jump' open when your release them ... very nicely done.
The engine for one is superbly detailed, with nice scaled down Carbon Fiber, just like the interior, the pod is a nice Carbon and the floor is covered with carpets, very well done.
The only thing I could mention that isn't perfect is the color of the interior, it might have been the influence of the light, but I remember the interior being a shade of blueish green, this scale model actually has a blue interior, but other than that this is one magnificently finished model, and it has a really nice, central place in my collection right now !
