Spotted on ebay :
(sadly the lowered stance is just wrong wrong)

Hand cast from an original one-off sculpture in solid cold cast bronze (resin with a genuine bronze filler) each model is prepped and painted in an "eye-popping" colour before being sprayed in a high gloss clear coat to give a stunning finish. Finally, every small detail is carefully hand painted with the smallest of brushes. Models requiring decals have the decals sealed beneath the clear coat preventing them ever coming off. Number plates are painted by hand and every model is hand-polished.

And the MM2 version which is much better without the stupid lowered stance

Everything is spot on except the 'slammed' look, what an odd thing to do. I guess skilled modelmakers could take it apart and fix the suspension to look right.

It's not a model with parts as such but a molded solid blob of resin mixed with bronze powder they claim , for what it is and the price it is cheap as long as it actually looks like the one in the photo ( not the lowered version though that looks s**t ), I've seen worse ones like this selling for more , real model makers are using the old plastic kits and current die cast cars for modding , this thing is basically a paper weight

Correct... but a cool paperweight (or even a door stop!) , perfect for the shed as it wont get damaged as quickly as a plastic model.
I have ordered the MM2 version which looks pretty good in the photos.

Sorry for what I wrote. I think I had mismatched something with other stuff sold by Ebay. No, those mini replicas look pretty nice! My fault dudes, sorry again.

Well it finally arrived (was a bit slow!)

Great little addition and I misread the add, its 1/25 scale.

The only minor issues with it is the rear rims are wrong and the side pipes should be cut square at the top.
Amazing quality but.
