Modelcars from Autoart are always a highlight: In the collection of our fans and customers as well as in our incoming goods department. The label, kown for its high quality models, made the eyes shine in our editorial staff with the delivery this week: With the Bugatti Chiron 2017 there is a proper large model in scale 1:12 among the novelties. Friends of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 from the same period can look forward to top-class miniatures in format 1:18, in which a new edition of the audience favorite Audi Sport quattro S1 has been published in the colors of sponsor HB: Walter Röhrl was behind the wheel and Christian Geistdörfer in the passenger seat when this tried and tested duo took fourth place at the 1986 Monte Carlo Rally. The models for this are part of this week's delivery.
Bugatti Automobiles has chosen the Monaco racing driver Louis Chiron to be the godfather of the sports car, which saw the light of day in 2016 as the successor to the Veyron. Compared to its predecessor, the developers from Alsace increased the output of the W16 by 25 percent: the owner of the super sports car with its 8.0-liter displacement can call up a full 1,103 kW / 1,500 hp. Four turbochargers, 1,600 Newton meters (Nm) maximum torque, monitoring of the vehicle by telemetry in real time and a maximum speed of regulated 420 kilometers per hour - these are data that hardly appear real to the driver of a Golf. From zero to 100 in 2.4 seconds, to 200 in 6.1 seconds and over 300 in 13.1: Mega.! The 1:12 modelcars appear in three colors.
The super sports cars, built from diecast by Autoart - own spelling AUTOart - are available in the two-color-combination french racing blue / atlantic blue under the item number 12111, under the 12112 in glacier white / atlantic blue as well as in the single color jet grey with the number 12114. In terms of processing quality, the exemplary details of the interior fittings correspond to the finish of the surface, which cannot be made better by hand. The two doors as well as the front and rear flaps are of course designed to be opened; the front wheels are steerable and the rear spoiler can be extended. It's really great what Autoart is putting in the showcase with this dream car. But the 1:18 models to which the link below leads are no less desirable. Including the Audi with item number 88601.
