Newsletter 583: Unique beauty

Unique beauty

Unique beauty
We all agree that these days all cars are similar, designers copy each other and it is difficult to see something groundbreaking, something different, a vehicle that is really stands out from the others. Strong personality and exclusive design, terms that were undoubtedly key words in 20th century cars, have now taken a backseat. Although from time to time a glimmer of hope emerges...

The attractive circles in the image of this newsletter are proof of what we are talking about. Is it necessary to say the name of the vehicle? No, it's not. It is a car with so much personality that just by looking at the exhausts we all know what machine we are talking about. And we love that. :D

Don't you have this unique beauty in your display case yet? Don't despair, because we have received from Aoshima the new edition of the scale model, now featuring the C12S version, which includes a fully detailed engine, openable hoods, etc...

At SpotModel we love beauties with character and personality, do you? :)
