This is one of Hot Wheels Eliteā€™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 donā€™t open as wide as an AutoArt model, but the half rolled down windows make it much easier to open them. Also, Iā€™ve noticed that the front wheels of Hot Wheels models donā€™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. Itā€™s quality details like these that really make the Elite models worth the extra price premium.

This interior looks great, but Iā€™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 ā€œplasticā€ feels like leather.
