I didn't own a scale model of a silver metallic Lamborghini Aventador LP700-1 in 1/18 scale yet, so when I saw this Motor Max made model listed for only €35 I ordered it together with a few other models to save on shipping costs ... for €35 I thought this was a nice value for money model to add to my already large collection of Aventador models.
I was wrong ... when she arrived I quickly saw this model wasn't even worth the €35 I paid for her, there is no attention to detail, the doors don't shut nicely, the large intakes behind the doors aren't even painted black, the taillights show no red or orange shade, only white, the brake calipers are just raised sections on the disks and there are some serious cast lines to be seen.
Not even the stance of the car looks right, the front suspension is set way too high, the headlights look terrible, the exterior rear view mirrors are angled down way too much and this model has that half-up side window too.
This is just a large toy, even 1/64 scale Hotwheels show better details than this large 1/18 model, sure it is a shade I didn't own yet, but unfortunately I wouldn't feel good about advising anyone to get this model for their collection ... just get one of the Welly models instead, usually listed at €35 or €40 they are a lot better value for money in my opinion ... sorry Motor Max.
