'12 Ford Taurus SHO Review

Drum roll please! *da-da-da-da-da-da-da-CRASH*. Time for a [very] long, overdue review from your neighborhood friendly ztp! Especially since this draft was made on 9-27-14. Regardless, this is a Greenlight, 1:64, '12 Ford Taurus SHO review, from GL's Motor World series. This was given to be from my cousin-in-law, in return for helping him obtain some Tomica cars (which will be sent probably next weekend, fyi).

Front view: I really like it, except for one thing, The grill seems to be uneven on both sides. But ignoring this, I love the 'presence' of the car, it's big and bold in it's own special way. The headlights are clear plastic, on top of some painted features. It's a weird idea, but looks cool none-the-less.

Side view: Everything is great here except one thing, the rear end. One thing I absolutely love about the 1:1 car is that the rear is sloped down and out, protruding the bumper a bit, like a fat lip. That isn't happening here, which is very unfortunate. The rear just sort of....drops. :(.

Rear view: Besides the weird angle of the rear, it look amazingly great. The taillights are clear, red plastic; the silver is painted over the red plastic. I also love how it says 'Taurus' & 'SHO' on it too. Plus the tailpipes are beautifully accented!

Top view: Nothing to crazy over here, but I want to mention that GL did an excellent job at choosing this color. I'm totally loving this blue.

Bottom view: As mentioned earlier, this is a GL Motor World car, the 'basic' version of their cars. What makes it so basic? Well for starters, the bottom is plastic, as apposed to metal used in the GL muscle and Country Road series. And I think the body is made of plastic as well. It's very lightweight.

Would I recommend it? I would actually. It's not the top-of-the-line type of cars that GL also sells, but you have to keep in mind, it's not a top-of-the-line car. Motor World cars usually sell for $3.99 each, GL's other series sell for $4.99, and go up. But you pay for the detail involved. It's like a more detailed HW's car.

Yes the price is a bit steep, but keep in mind, GL is notorious for reusing it's mold's in other series. Which may mean they will make a Taurus SHO with a metal body and bottom. And you can bet I'll be all over that....
