Autobianchi is nice, and it's the late model. AFAIK no-one makes that yet.

Everyone seems to ask about the same, which IMO is too much for the quality... about EUR 50-55.

Just googled that, the first Kess model I've seen that actually looks pretty decent. Most models have oversized wheels or the proportions are out of whack.

nice looking little car. The model looks nice from these tiny pics, hopefully they will be even better in hand (I somehow don't like too much their "modern" cars).

They also tend to get the proportions wrong. Such a shame, because they do fill a niche.

The VW looks totally off, but maybe I'm mistaken (talking from memory).
