That's really based on a SM? :o Great looking effort by Frua. Bit worried by the flying buttress on the model though.

Cheers

That's a very nice car. Out of my price range though, even if it's discounted. I'm sad that the only Rolls Royces in my collection are Dinky, Corgi & Models of Yesteryear. Oh wait! There's also two Rextoy. I do have two Minichamps Bentley Continentals though, so all is not lost. I can always hope that New Ray gets a license some time in the future.

A sure bet indeed... 8-)

I briefly considered buying it although, I already have it in red! And, I have several black and silver Rolls-Royce models, so I figured that it would get lost among them when I'd finally displayed them all.

This is a gorgeous looking model! When the red one was first announced I was disappointed about Matrix's choice of colour, but when the model arrived I fell in love with this red Rolls! ;)

We're on the very SAME page here Julio. I always make a point of trying to get 'contrasting' colors of the same brands, or at least within an 'era' to create drama and distinction when on display. Sometimes my bargain hunting gets in the way of this approach, but it's usually my goal. I guess Johan won't agree with us :lol:

An interesting bunch as usual from Matrix. I like the Veritas (would love the 2009 RS3 even more). The Superflow is a long time want of mine but as Neo are planning it as well and with the twin advantages of smaller prices and smaller boxes that will be the version I'll get (unless it's a real dog!). Low drag Jag looks a bit lumpy doesn't it? Disco looks surprisingly good in BRG although that colour is just wrong on an Italian. :shock:
Although I know it's correct I can't help but feel the Aston break would look better without the roof rack. Were any other rackless versions built?

Lancia looks very nice too!

I have to agree with you on the disco volante. Looks stunning and very tempting in this colour. But already have the red one...
I definitely want the DBS shooting brake. But well, maybe I'll pass, wait for a second version without the roof rack ;)

Few new models are releasing this month from GLM.

The Lincoln is more reasonably priced then the other models from them.

I was wondering what are the opinions on the Lincoln....?

Lincoln looks good. I hope they release it with thin whitewalls, like all American luxury cars of that era had! :)

The Lincoln looks good. The color is accurate and a popular one although not a favorite of mine. At least it isn't a stereotypical black. There's a more turquoise blue and a copper that might make this look more lively, but Lincoln buyers tended to be more conservative than Cadillac owners so I don't think many would be painted that way.

It's a classic American design and I like the 1969 more than some others because the grille had finer detail (more squares) and looked more regal (flat like Rolls Royce). It was the last year for this body style. The photo is sort of low quality but I don't see any obvious flaws. A quick search of the web leads me to believe that the hood ornament I was expecting was not on these cars. I second the wish for thin whitewall tires.

You said the Lincoln is more reasonably priced, but Matrix is generally priced above my limits so I'm not sure if I will buy. I may wait to see if BoS does it in another color. I don't see many places they could cut corners and produce a less acceptable model.

This is one I'll buy, even as a Matrix!

I have the IXO black limousine, so refreshing to get a 'color'!

Its a GLM so substantially more expensive than a Matrix.
