A couple of weeks ago, Carriage House Models received our first shipment of Autoart’s 1:18-scale replica of the 2010 FIA GT1 World Championship-winning Maserati MC12. Upon our first inspection, we were more than satisfied with the level of detail and craftsmanship poured into this model. Like the real car, Autoart’s MC12 GT1 is a big, impressive piece, with beautiful paintwork and exquisite internal components. One of the nicest features of the car has to be the shutlines; the MC12 has a removable front clip and engine panel as well as opening doors, and they fit as close to flush as one is likely to find in a 1:18-scale model.
Collectors who have been on the scene for a while may feel a bit of sticker shock when they see models from Autoart now priced at $295, as our MC12 is. Be assured, though, that the level of quality built into this car stacks up very nicely against other premium model companies like Exoto and BBR. Individually numbered and with a certificate of authenticity included, the Autoart MC12 GT1 should become an instant classic among collectors of international GT racing models.
