GT did an amazing job there, especially love the red interior. Had it been black, this wouldn't be half as good.
Thanks Tom for your comments, as ever.

This one was a long time coming but adds nicely to my DE Audi R8 collection:

Very nice 8-) Reminds me of my Deutsche Post racing version on the older R8. My favourite R8 in my collection

Thanks Tom.......quite a striking colour, though not one I would choose on an 1:1 R8.

Thanks Alistair. I need to get a racing version.....more so now I've seen a few in action in the Blancpan GT Series at Brands recently.

Next up is BBR number 2......another Abarth Biposto this time with the Yamaha Racing decals. Available in the Podium Blue in tribute to Rossi, of which mine is 29 of 46. Silver one available too, for some other rider who's name I don't recall.

It must be a mesmerizing experience to drive this small pocket rocket. I wish I was lucky enough to do that someday.

Yellow snazzes up the Audi to another level :? Your Fiat/Abarth looks fantastic, even better than the first one you've shown. These are so rare, don't guess they'll ever be on 'sale'? BB

I was astonished to see a Fiat Riva version buzzing around town at the weekend. Occasionally we get the Abarth 'Bike' 595 specials and the 'Schumacher' tribute car that had a carefully spaced registration plate that read 'A10NSO'.

I am a HUGE "Rossi" fan and love the yamaha colours BUT I really don't like Fiats, so sadly I don't think I'll be tracking one of these down :(
On a side note, I never even knew anything like this even existed!! How do you manage to find these oddities Simon? :?

Find some nice narrow twisty roads and they are amazingly good fun.

Don't think the blue Rossi one is available any more, but the silver version still has limited availability

Really like my 1:1 Yamaha Factory Racing edition.......though might be replaced by Abarth number 3 soon.

My logbook states that the manufacturer is Abarth not Fiat ;)

I think that needs a strong colour like Valencia Orange. Still a good model though.

Really admire these tiny, brutish BMW coupes. This and the 1M are so much more appealing than almost the rest of their current lineup ;) Tom, I think the color seems 'safe' because of the background it's photographed on? Not knocking the white carpet either, it's beautiful and Kudos to Simon for keeping it so clean, how does one do that? Levitation perhaps :P BB

Thanks Tom - think the blue looks much better on it.

Thanks BB - the M2 would be my choice of BMW's at the moment too......similar in many ways to the E30 M3.

Kudos for clean carpet goes to Mrs Simon......I'll ask her for tips if you want?

Thanks.....up there in my list of collection favourites, though biased due to my connection to Haynes of Maidstone.
