Ferrari California T M:18 Scale Model by MR Collection Launched [Video] [Photo Gallery]

Ferrari California T M:18 Scale Model by MR Collection Launched [Video] [Photo Gallery] | Luxury24seven | Scoop.it

⌖ A- A+ Ferrari scale models are probably the most popular collectables with young car fans from across the world. Since most grow up idolizing the Prancing Horse supercars on their walls, adding a 1:18 or 1:43 toy seems like the natural next step. Today, we bring you a new one, launched only two days ago and not even available in shops yet. We’re talking about a 1:18 scale version of the new Ferrari California T, the revamped version of the 2-seater convertible they launched in Geneva. The Italians spent a lot of money to ensure we now take their cheapest car very seriously and this clearly shows in the design of the scale model, which is much more interesting to look at than old Californias. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); The models are made by a Japanese company called MR Collection, who specializes in diecast replicas. They say the California T will soon be available in the following colors: Rosso California, Blu Ribot, Bianco Italia, Rosso Corsa, Grigio Silverstone and Rosso Scuderia. MR Collection also makes a 1:43 scale display, which you can check in the gallery below. This one features a carbon-look base, a yellow Ferrari logo in the middle and two California T models, one with the roof up and the other with it down. However, they only made 25 of those and sold all of them for €609. Why the Ferrari California T s COOL When Ferrari conceived the California, they wanted it to become their cheapest and best selling model. Yet between using a Maserati platform, chopping all the rigidity out of it and using an underpowered engine, they ended up with a complete flop. The California T acts not only as a major facelift, but also marks the return of the Prancing horse to forced induction. Under the bonnet of the real thing is a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 560 horsepower, 70 more than before. Torque is also up, which means 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds is possible. The 458 is expected to follow its turbocharged lead with an updated model likely to be called 458M. ❐ Check out the MR Collection Ferrari California T 1:18 Scale Model photo gallery http://www.car-news.co/ferrari-california-t-m18-scale-model-by-mr-collection-launched-video-photo-gallery/

Rich Chinese Teenagers Driving Supercars Have Their Own Car Meets in California [Video]

Rich Chinese Teenagers Driving Supercars Have Their Own Car Meets in California [Video] | Luxury24seven | Scoop.it

⌖ A- A+ A quick glance at the Chinese automotive landscape shows a great disconnect, with the new money-acquired luxury cars defying the beaters of the masses, but what about the Chinese four-wheeled life that takes place abroad? The Californian car scene is one of the strongest, with tons and tons of cool metal driving around. However, these wealthy Chinese teenagers have their own world, as showcased in the adjacent short documentary that comes from Vocativ. We have to remember the communist Chinese authorities are not exactly the kind who appreciate sharing, so, in order to prevent their parents from getting into trouble, the youngsters do brag about the lavish rides, but do this among themselves. The documentary takes us to a nighttime car meet in San Gabriel Valley, where the Chinese teens, boys and girls alike, show off their rides. Not necessarily surprising, nobody seem to care too much about the passion invested in the cars. For instance, one boy explains he chose a Ferrari California because he… studies in California. There are 235,000 youngsters from Mainland China who attend US high schools and universities and this is where you see those coming from the wealthiest families. Their rides? Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, all the mainstream supercar and luxury car producers are here. Of course, the tuning needs are also catered for, but don’t expect things to go much deeper than wraps or perhaps a body kit. Since most of these machines are a pain to drive on a daily basis, the teens use other rides for going to school. Yep, Audis are a rather good example here. Fortunately, the South Californian car scene goes far beyond this The South Californian car scene is flooded with people who actually care about the driving part. Given the different budget and preferences, you end up with a great diversity of car meets. From the various flavors of JDM meets to the exotics at Cars and Coffee in Orange County, there’s something for every taste. Then there are the awesome driving roads in Southern Cali, routes such as Angeles Crest Highway, Glendora Mountain Road, Turnbull Canyon, Azusa Canyon, Mount Wilson and others. There’s just one complaint we have to make – all those people walking around Hollywood dressed as superheros miss out on the four-wheeled action. For instance, we’ve seen plenty of Batman guys, but none had a Batmobile. http://www.release-tv.info/rich-chinese-teenagers-driving-supercars-have-their-own-car-meets-in-california-video/
