BBURAGO : AUDI R8 (1/43)

BBURAGO (Italy die-cast brand) has recent release some of the newer diecast cars in 1/43 scale in its "Street Fire" series. The AUDI R8 in pearl blue color, also available in black is one of it. SRP is RM14.90, fairly reasonable for a simple 1/43 scale diecast.

Box packaging with see-thru window as shown in pics, nothing fancy. The brand, series and scale of the cars are display but not the car name. Car are not tie or hold firmly in box but loosely moving forward and backward.

The AUDI R8 feature pearl blue body paint with clear glass window. There side view mirror there, wheels and base are in plastic. The base are not screw or rivet to the car body but rather SNAP on it. Definitely suitable for those wanting to custom this as the base is easily to take out and snap back in.

Paint detail at the rear such as rear light and break light, Audi logo is clearly shown, as in the front hood. The wheels design is the same for other model in the series . Still at the price of rm14.90 a piece, its ok.

Overall, a nice decent piece of 1/43 scale featuring the newest model with a reasonable price in the market. This Audi done better then the GT-R as it got side mirror. Go for it if you collect this model in all its scale.
