This is one of Hot Wheels Elite’s best models in my opinion. The detailing is gorgeous, especially in the signature Ferrari red/tan color combo. Check out the photo stream and see for yourself:

Flying buttresses!

The doors don’t open as wide as an AutoArt model, but the half rolled down windows make it much easier to open them. Also, I’ve noticed that the front wheels of Hot Wheels models don’t turn left/right that much compared to pretty much any other diecast manufacturer.

If you look closely you can see the mesh pocket behind the seats. It’s quality details like these that really make the Elite models worth the extra price premium.

This interior looks great, but I’ve always wondered why the carpeting is a different color tan than the rest of the interior. Regardless the mix of carpet, rubber, and leather-texture plastic really makes the interior top notch.

I think the engine bay in this model looks great. I particularly love the paint/texture of the dark gray plastic cover in the front; it looks way higher quality than the plastic it actually is.

Yes, it comes with two bespoke matching Ferrari-badged suitcases in the trunk! And yes, the “plastic” feels like leather.
