My husband and I recently went to the iHobby show in Cleveland Ohio last weekend. We have NEVER seen a die cast car like this. The first thing we realized was the shape of the car and its paint job it looked unbelievable it just shimmers in the light! We spoke to the wonderful people at the booth they told us it was all metal and only a few pieces were being made. my husband collects expensive die cast cars all the time but for a model with 289 shelby cobra engine, triple the size, quality, and value for $2000.00 it is worth every penny. BEAUTIFUL MODEL! cant wait to order mine!
