KengFai New Audi RS7 4.0T (2016)

The latest from KengFai is the 1:18, diecast Audi RS7 4.0T (2016).  From what we gather this is the same base model released from MINIKRAFT, and one we reviewed back in 2016.  Audi and Audi RS don’t get much love in scale so this was quite refreshing for the period.  KengFai purchased the rights and moulds to create a new batch, which is a good thing.  Colours include Red, Black and Grey.  Each will set you back about $200 CND.

    I have the previous RS7 version from KengFai with the silver 5 spoke wheels, in mat grey and In my opinion it is a very nice model car. It has some flaws yes, but taking in mind the manufacturer and the price, it is a very well made model car and a VFM one. It has many details in the interior and the exterior that make it very attractive. Moreover I was very surprised from its weight, it is by far the heaviest die cast model that I have ever owned.

    I am not fully aware of what other options / versions are today in the market, regarding the RS7 with opening parts, but when I purchased the previous KengFai RS7 I think that it was the best option available.

      There is none other than resin/sealed. And with KengFai production efficiencies they are cheaper than those examples too. How one would choose sealed over this option is truly a mystery LOL.

      Thanks for the information. I’m interested in this one, but I do have a question: I know the real car has an interactive spoiler, but for this model, the spoiler posable or is it glued on?

      • DS Team says:

        Sight unseen we would say yes; this is based on the original having this option and the looks on the spoiler with the provided photos.

      • Kostas says:

        As the previous RS7 version that I have, has a fully functioning spoiler, I believe that also the new one will have a functioning one. Moreover it might be also improved on some small areas, as it is a new version.

    The gap between the doors is large and uneven

      Indeed. I felt the same about the previous RS7 they made. They put a lot of details in their models but the panel gaps and the alignment of the opening parts with the rest of the model is not the best. I remember I was also not too keen of how they made the side profile. Better then sealed resin models, in my opinion, but I don’t think I’d buy it other than with a substantial discount.
