Dear Collector,

LAFERRARI IN 1:18th SCALE – ONLINE THE FIRST OFFICIAL IMAGES


LaFerrari is a limited production (499 units) hybrid sports car unveiled by Ferrari at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, based on findings from testing of the Ferrari FXX and built to replace the Enzo as top-level model of the entire production.

This is the first Ferrari ever to be designed and developed entirely in house, and is a concentrate of F1-derived technologies, such as the HY-KERS system and extreme aerodynamic solutions. Its mid-mounted V12 engine produces 790bhp and is hooked up to an electric motor that adds the equivalent of another 160bhp to reach the incredible total power of 950bhp (in a car that weighs around 1300kg). That’s truly impressive!

Thanks to these extraordinary technical features, LaFerrari provides shocking performances: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in under 3 secs, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in less than 7 secs and a top speed exceeding 350 km/h (220 mph). It’s the fastest road-going Ferrari ever produced.

Now Hot Wheels Elite™ has taken this wonder and has shrunk it in 1:18 scale! Take a look at the first official images of the model. Learn more.

K.A.R.R. “KNIGHT AUTOMATED ROVING ROBOT” IN 1:18th SCALE


K.A.R.R. (Knight Automated Roving Robot) is a black and grey customized 1982 Pontiac Trans AM and is the major antagonist of K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand) in the popular ‘80s action-adventure television series, 'Knight Rider'.

In the TV show, K.A.R.R. was a prototype vehicle created before K.I.T.T. by Wilton Knight himself. K.A.R.R. was immediately deactivated because a serious problem was detected in the system: it was programmed exclusively for self-preservation and not to protect human life (unlike K.I.T.T.). Stored away in the Knight Museum of Technology, K.A.R.R. was re-activated by mistake and becomes a very dangerous enemy for K.I.T.T. Check out our new 1:18th and 1:43rd scale models of this diabolical vehicle.
