New Brand, Another Lamborghini? (UPDATE/VIDEO)

** UPDATE ** So the focus for Engine Vehicle Art is definitely high-end metal and full 360 access models and then some.  As you can see from the newly attached video removable access panels do highlight an amazing undercarriage and related components, usually reserved for such brands as CMC and Exoto.  This is surely exciting news for collectors!

As for pricing, EVA will be offering two versions a promotional Asian offering and a second dubbed globe released noted as a high-end offering.  The latter is priced at $449US and in addition to the model, it will include a hardbound gift box, a second set of wheels and a car cover. Engine Vehicle Art wants to hear from you!  Any suggestions or feedback please direct here >>> evamodelcompany [at] 163 [dot] com.  This would include exterior colours, future models and possible improvements.

**  UPDATE ** Engine Vehicle Art did forward thirteen new images of their upcoming 1:18 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Their models will be manufactured in Dongguan, Guangdong province.  And their focus is motors, hence the name.  “We regard model car as an art pattern! The engine is the core of the car, which contributes to the fact that making efforts to revive the details of the engine in real car is a vital attribute of the EVA model product”.  Fully detailed and working suspension with removal wheels is part of the package too.  Looks like CMC level for modern sports!  The other projects mentioned in addition are scheduled for 2024, not 2023 as noted below.  They are also in discussion of what materials each will be executed in.  Not sure if the intent is an assortment of resin-sealed, resin-opening or metal openings.  We asked for clarification and also pricing.  More to come!

There’s a new manufacturer of scale models, these would include full-access examples that are metal with plastic parts.  They are Engine Vehicle Art or EVA for short.  This is HongKong based company with their first 1:18 example being the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ in White/Black with Red Stripe.  Not sure why EVA went with the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ as AUTOart has launched their campaign, and we’re sure many have opted for this model already.  Their only advantage is the metal exterior and possibly the overall detailing, time will tell how EVA transitions from this R&D example to metal – as shutlines are important to many.  If interested, the Lambo is set to arrive in September 2023 with 900 pieces heading into production. In addition to Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, 2023 will see the Roadster version of the same, the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato and Toyota Supra A90, all 1:18 scale.  We’ve reached out to Engine Vehicle Art for comment, more to come!

    I saw the publicity picture and I was very interested, but how can I order it in Europe?

  2. Robin Iske says:

    I was in Belgium, I asked the dealer, they haven’t heard from me yet, I really want to know how to buy it.

    • DS Team says:

      The focus is on completing and mass production of the model itself. Not sure if there even extended invitations to dealers and or retailers yet. There is no option to buy the model now.

  3. Mike Wiseman says:

    Wow, is that a metal tie rod and rubber bushings..?

  4. David says:

    Wow, very shocking, which makes me feel the same level as EXOTO and cmc

  5. andy says:

    This is the most complicated super running model I have seen. I can’t wait to buy it, which greatly exceeds the quality of AA.

  6. Nico says:

    In my opinion, this is far beyond the level of SLR2003, and the price is slightly lower than the current cmc. I am very much looking forward to its release. I must buy one.

  7. Joni says:

    This product is very amazing, I will not hesitate to buy it. If they plan to produce Ferrari models, it will be even better. I hate the current BBR and Bburago.

  8. Vitalii D says:

    Looks very promising. Let’s see how far it will go.
    My dream 1:18 model would be SSC Tuatara with full openings and engine & suspension details at the level of 1:18 AutoArt Nissan R390 GT1. Who knows, if EVA succeeds with its Lamborghini, maybe it will consider making SSC Tuatara? Or maybe AutoArt will decide to revive its glory and produce SSC Tuatara with highly detailed engine & suspension?

  9. Amin says:

    What a good news. The price is great with these ditales. There was a gap for super sport models at this assortment even though recent Ferraris models , EVA
    will hit the nail on the head.

  10. Steve says:

    This is the real car model, not children’s toys. BBR and Autoart gradually become children’s toys.

    • yt says:

      All models are toys, for boys and girls or for the grown ups who are still boys and girls at heart (i.e. did not get enough of their playing yet)… so no need to wrap yourself in pretzels denying this obvious fact. Fine Art it is not, but something more tactile and engaging.
      Now, I am personally somewhat skeptical of this effort. I wish it to succeed, but just look at the fates of Exoto (though Tony probably wished it to succeed with all his heart and passion), then Almost Real who had a strong start and fizzled out into mediocrity. CMC went through periods of horrible quality of assembly, and models that turned malformed and way off (- hallo CMC Aston Zagato…). And someone wishes to step into this marketplace at the time of mild recession?? Producing not necessity but hobby objects?? Not even iconic models but some unmemorable current Lambos that were never examples of innovative shapes of any design purity? Those Aventadors are fussy and will never be iconic the way Miura or Countach or even Diablo was…Well, besr of luck to them.

  11. Vitaliy D says:

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I saw CMC 1:18 Ferrari California: “this is the _real_ scale model!”. Even AutoArt’s Pagani Huayra (the initial die-cast model) looked like just a very detailed toy comparing to that Ferrari: the number of details and materials are significantly lower. Where CMC uses metal and rubber, AutoArt uses plastic; where CMC uses leather, AutoArt uses plastic. So you may imagine how shocked I was to see a composite AutoArt 1:18 Koenigsegg One:1 that even worsened the situation with details and materials, especially this strange ribbed plastic that intended to mimic carbon fibre, but in fact it looks exactly as a ribbed plastic. (Frankly, when I originally noticed such ribbed plastic in parts of the 1:18 Pagani Huayra’s interior, I was thinking that it reflected some ribbed surfaces in the real car).

  12. Terry says:

    I’m very confused. I can’t buy this product in Canada. Why do many businesses not know about this product?

    • DS Team says:

      Slow down there Terry, the focus at the moment is the actual model. We provided them with a few contacts for potential distributors in Canada and USA.

  13. ajrf says:

    How much would they cost? It looks great.

  14. Reza says:

    Any information of the location and specs of the manufactory?
