That C type is a great addition Andy....I love CMC stuff ...as good as Exoto and in lots of cases better for generally better prices too....the Ferrari 250 F they did is stunning.
Thanks Steve
I like CMC stuff. Ranks above all Exoto except for their XS range and cheaper but not by a lot these days

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Volkswagen introduced the Lupo in 1998 as it's smallest model to fill the gap left by the increasing size and weight of the Polo. The top of the range GTi arrived in 2000 powered by a 123hp 112 lb-ft 1.6 litre engine and with a weight of just over a 1000kg it could reach 60 in less than 80 seconds and 127 mph flat out, numbers remarkably close to the original MK1 GTi from 1975. The car remained in production until 2005

Really rare car here in NL, Lupos aplenty, but I've only seen a handful of GTIs. Otto did their usual thing, perfect reduction by 18 times. The colour is very appealing too.

Same here Tom. Sought after now as so few were made. A friend had one but it wasn't the most reliable of cars or should i say the six speed linkage was not and it left her stuck in a gear of its choice a few times with predictable consequences depending on which gear it was
Otto have as you say got it spot on and the colour was the clincher for me
