Here's a pic of mine, not the best but you get the idea. Even the exhaust route is right underneath.

Minichamps make the best model I believe and they're really quite rare and normally go for over 40. scratcher's one looks like the minichamps model !!

Heres one in white on ebay !!

Mine is a Universal Hobbies model. It doesn't have the side decals like the Minichamps one does, and I didn't get a cool display stand  :(
I've got it out for a little photo-shoot but its hard to get a good focus with it being small. I took one of the under side so you can see the exhaust and brake lines. It does have the right badges on the back Even the wheels spin but the calipers stay still  :D

Thats right universal hobbies I forgot they made one as well !! I looked into getting one a while back but didn't want to spend 40+ on one...

Can't remember which one was supposed to be better though the minichamps or universal hobbies !!

Yeah, 40 is a bit pricey. I think Mine was around 15 notes. I'll ask my girlfriend how much she paid.
I'm tempted to buy another and paint it up like my own car  :lol:

The white one has just been withdrawn from sale by ebay with less than an hour to go, irritating really as it would have been perfect for me :(

I got mine from the french ebay... http://www.ebay.fr/  as I couldnt find a Tungy one on the UK ebay at the time.  You might find what ur looking for on there? I think I only paid about 15 inc del.   Its a really cool model...Its the Universal Hobbies one.

 Really is top quality.. comes up a treat after a few coats of Auto Glym!   8)   It looks better in the flesh than in the piccy.

 

 

 This is it zooming off...

Mine's the same as Scratchers and cost me about 12 delivered from Ebay last year. All I could find for sale at the time were the Raider ones.

I want a 1:18 GT turbo :(

I've got one of the 1:43 Universal Hobbies models, and they are pretty nice. Good detail
