This high-end composite model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish. The
undercarriage, suspension, brakes, and exhaust are nicely replicated. Opening doors, hood,
trunk and amazing engine detail.
AUTOart's latest innovation in composite and diecast models, or exquisitely crafted replicas made from a
hybrid of different materials that have been selected and engineered to produce both the supreme finish
detail and high value our collectors demand. Model making will never be the same. In composite models,
AUTOart pairs a die-cast interior with a newly developed injection Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a
thermoplastic polymer with special blend of different materials for reinforcement of the body, utilizing the
benefits of both materials to create the highest quality models our company has ever produced. Injection
ABS composite material has shown itself to be an ideal material to form the body of a model car.
Compared to our old body material, die-cast zinc, injected-ABS composite material surfaces, with correct
formulation, are smoother and the bodylines and creases are sharper. The openings for vents and holes
are also reproduced more cleanly, and the panels can be much thinner when rendered in ABS composite
material than in zinc alloy. That makes the finished body closer to the true scale gauge of real car bodies.
