Despite my lack of love for it, the model is well done considering its budget status. The graphics look like decals instead of pad prints, but they are perfectly aligned. They’re dull though and it detracts from the models appearance. Also on my gripe list are the wheels, which are as dull as the graphics.

The interior gets a roll cage, race seat, and battery. But the console and dash look like stock pieces. Whether or not this is correct is beyond me. Under the engine cover you’ll find a surprisingly complete engine assembly.

My disdain for this model seems to be shared. Unlike most other Mattel Ferraris, this one is available for about the same cost as when new, about $40.
