Lamborghini New Editions

The Lamborghini Miura is considered as the most sexiest car in the world.
Many would even agree that it is also the most beautiful car ever made. It also defined the word “Supercar”. Model aside, like the P400SV and Jota SVR version Miuras, the Lamborghini Miura P400S model is also excellently crafted by Kyosho.

This is the other half of my ultimate holy “Lambo” grail. It also took me more than two years to find this precious model.
The Lamborghini Countach 5000s model reminds of of the 80s movie, “Cannonball Run II”. As with all “Cannonball Run” series, their beginnings start off with a speeding Countach chased by police patrol cars.

The Lamborghini Gallardo Polizia was premiered at a ceremony at the Viminale Palace where the Gallardo LP560-4 based police car was donated to the head of the Italian State Police, Prefect Antonio Manganelli.

It is a limited (250 units) version named after Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni. The engine was rated at 550 PS (405 kW; 542 hp)
he vehicle had dry weight of 1,380 kg (3,000 lb). Unlike the contemporary line-up, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni Limited Edition is rear-wheel-drive (because the standard all-wheel-drive system was removed). The CORSA ESP setting allows greater drift angles over regular models.

AUTOart as usual is the best maker of most modern Lamborghini models (1990 and up) such as the Reventon, Murcielago, Gallardo, Diablo in scales 1:18 and 1:43.
This particular model is the only American version Lamborghini replicated by AUTOart. The rest are European version (which is much better in my opinion)
