    So, do you get first choice of future models for, what is it, the next 6 years?

    They only had 1 in stock, and would not promise me any special treatment going forward .. they even tried to fob me off with too small a plastic bag. They produced the correct sized plastic bag when I insisted, and didn't charge for it, so I got a great deal indecision

    It feels very planted, and glued to the display case.

    Quite a heavy thing actually. I checked to see that they hadn't included batteries

    Very nice but I stopped buying model cars after my son, when he was very young, destroyed my entire Porsche model car collection. I had around 20 very nice cars and he destroyed them all (ripped off doors, wings, etc.). Since that time, I haven't bought any model car for myself anymore. Two years ago, my son got himself a very rare special edition Burago Bugatti Veyron model (with every tiny detail, even in the interior) in Italy at a specialized dealer. He paid over 200 EUR for it, all the money he had saved during the year. A few months ago, he had a visit from some of his friends and while he was downstairs with some of the kids, the other kids took the Bugatti model car from the box and started playing with it. Result: Destroyed. mail Same goes to other model cars my son bought for himself over the years. Once other kids put their hands on these cars, forget about them. enlightened

    I still have two rare Porsche model cars (a 997 Turbo model from the 997 Turbo presentation in Zuffenhausen and one 991 Turbo S with the personal signature of the (at that time) 911 Turbo development boss Dr. Moessle) and I keep these car models high up on a cabinet in the living room, so no kid can actually reach them.

    Models take too much space... I had 20 Burrago From the 80s but nowhere to put it frankly...

    I have 30+ vintage tamiya 1/10th & 1/12th RC kits from the 80s stored away in the loft in sealed boxes (at least I hope they're still sealed!)

    Nice.

    Old school turbo'ed camaro kicked it's ass at 2:15 though.  No electric, no launch control, no PDK, not traction control.  Muscle only.  That's pretty impressive.

    Most probably, it's a drag car only with 3-speed auto and drag radials...


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Drag races never impressed me. There are a bunch of GT500 lovers doing drag races once a year on some deserted airfield in Germany but I never participated, only watched. At least two or more clutches smoke off into Nirvana during this event, so no thanks. Fun watching it though.

    IMHO drag racing ultra super car against camaros & mustangs is an insult to the car and its owner.. Even if the competition has a "super duper" sooped up engine!

    It also shows the owner as totally clueless to why such ultra super cars were built to begin with!

    If there snow on or next to the road in the back?

    Without winter tires, the 918 is not really a car one should drive in winter time at low temperatures, especially when the road is wet and/or slippery. Not even sure there are approved winter tires for this car. Smiley

    Saw this album on Reddit.  Red and black are my favorite colors for the 918.

    RM Sothebys sold a white 918 weissach last night for $1.59m (before buyers premium).

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    1.45mil is the hammer price, 1.59mil is the price including commission.

    The seller bought the car for not much less than 1.45mil early last year, so he didn't make much if at all.

    I know that car :)

    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    My mistake re: premium. Sothebys did say that was the high estimate though.

    I have to say, in White it's not nearly as striking. Black and Blue are the colours that seem to work best. Though I have to admit I do like this one a lot as well...

    White and regular silver are boring, black hides the lines. That might be why they are so popular, LOL.

    Red and light blue are tricky. Dark blue is almost like black. Havent seen a yellow one.

    That green is surprisingly really nice and fits the hybrid theme.

    In the end liquid metal is probably the winner...


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I"m not a huge fan of yellow on it. Same goes for the bright greens.

    Blues just show it off well. I agree the liquid blue will probably be looked on as the best colour in 20 years. But I still like the dark one best.

    Lovely in dark blue, definitely one of the best if not the best color for the 918. Also I personally love to see pics of the car with the wing down, such a beautiful silhouette, this pic for example, perfection. 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    +1.. Acid green calipers go with it nicely.
