50TH AN­NIVER­SARY LAMBO

New Zealand Classic Car - - AUTOMOBILIA -

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.
