We thought of a full review, but the replica is very simplistic next to the real deal. And having never seen true 1:1 in the flesh it is somewhat challenging to truly provide a closer look. We not saying the model is not on par with AUTOart’s level of detail and attention, quite the opposite.
As for the model, what we like. The exterior Blue carbon and weave are top-notch. Have you read AUTOart’s article on the topic? Well, it seems this application required some new R&D to achieve the results, and the results are terrific! All opening be it front, rear or top are capped with metal grilles or open to the internal surroundings. The wheels are our favourite piece, reminds of the rollers from the AUTOart’s early Viper. So realistic they look like metal. Two items of interest include a functional rear spoiler. Thumbs up to the cool engineering on AUTOart’s part. Also, access is permitted into the interior via both doors.
On the downside, the price is high, and we don’t see why. But when compared to the resin and fully sealed competitors, is it a bargain? You decide. The interior is good but nothing over the topic. We wish more access to the internal working were available via removable panels – front and rear. Possibly, limitations of the concept or Bugatti? Lastly, the Red rings that surround the exterior side of the door hinges could use a little more finesse on the execution side. Overall a very satisfying replica, one for those that appreciate different. Enjoy the pics!
