Casting

Since they are both the same casting, I'm going to go ahead and call this one a tie. Cool? Cool.

Fit and Finish

Obviously Hot Wheels possesses painting tools that I do not, resulting in a much shinier, orange, smooth finish. Edge goes to Hot Wheels for this one.

Details

I added all the detail I could, from the tail light LEDs, to the tail pipes, to the black scoops, to the chin spoiler, and even added hand painted headlights and a Raging Bull badge on the front. I think I've earned it here. Suck on that, Hot Wheels!!

Final Thoughts

Well, since I am now sentimentally attached to the Balboni I think that one wins. It has more detail, lacks a bit in the paint quality, but does have Balboni stripes. I like to think that the legend himself would prefer my Veneno over the orange Hot Wheels version too. But I may be biased.

All i can say is, I did the orange first. So there.
