It is not so colored, such as in models of Kyosho or even BBR. Which brings us at 1: 12-model would be, which traces the details in easily visible through the large panes interior much better than the smaller Bburago. Instruments, switches, the look of the side panels, seats - sensationally good quality, added when evenly also rather more expensive. The exterior is good at two miniatures: Both Ferrari and BBR have taken the appearance of the model exactly; the look of the models agrees perfectly with that of the Ferrari 488 for the road.
