This is the second OttOmobile car to arrive in two weeks, and I just received news the MKI Golf Pirelli just arrived as well… If you don’t know OttOmobile is French manufacture from based in France that specializes in 1:18 and 1:12 scale resin cars. Their models to date have all been sealed with such brands as Citroen, Peugeot, Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, and more. What makes them unique is the subject matter; they take on projects that the more established manufactures such as AUTOart, Kyosho, or Minichamps will not consider in 1:18 scale. They fill a niche market that seems to work, as most of there releases, which are limited editions sell-through.
The Audi S8 is limited to 1750 units. My biggest complaint with OttOmobile, which has been a theme with them lately is their lack of quality control. I’ve been presented a few models that leave you scratching your head as to why they ever left the factory. And the latest Audi S8 is no different, the first one I received had numerous paint defects with the chrome bits very suspect. The second had to be sourced from a third party as Otto claimed the model as sold out. Overall the execution is very good. The paint is very rich and glossy. The wheels (one of my personal favourites from Audi OEM) are done beautifully too. The interior seems well-appointed, and lives up to the 1:1. Enjoy the pics!
