50TH ANNIVERSARY LAMBO
On a more modern front, this month we were rather taken with this 1:18 model from Autoart’s Signature range. Lamborghini built only 200 examples of its Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario model — 100 coupés and 100 roadsters — so this beautifully detailed model from AUTOART is probably the closest most of us will ever get to one of these limited edition supercars, unless you’ve got a spare $795,000 and are prepared to hand it over to those nice chaps at Giltrap Prestige. And that Nz-new price represents a whopping premium of $120,000 over the ‘standard’ Aventador. As for us — well, we can barely afford to add this lovely die-cast model to our collection! AUTOART models are available from all good toy and hobby shops. Contact Toymod Ltd (PO Box 18 263, Auckland, ph. 09 527 0122/fax 09 527 0144) to find your closest retailer.
