Does anyone know where I can find one in 1:24 or 1:18 scale?

Hotwheels have an 1:18 available. Pretty easy to get.
Still none yet at the MAttel outlet store but maybe coming in soon I hope.
I've seen them at Target.
Look in Ebay.com
does anybody make one without the damn stripe?
I've heard that the stripe can be remove fairly easily.
Try the Hot Wheels Ferrari website...you can order from there i think. I've see some 612's, 575's and Stradales at Target before, check them out in the toy section. Hey you have an RX-8? Me to!
Yep, ive got the stripe version & will soon buy another & remove the stripe & put in on a black enzo!
Yes the stripe can be removed, but there are a white painted line under it. You can try to remove it with nail polish remover.
I ahve the hot wheels one. Its pretty cool but i was disapointed because the stripe come off really easly. Its just a sticker.
612 Scag @ Target!? I gotta start shopping around for that!!
I just picked up a blue 612 Scag at Target today.
as cavallinomodels so aptly pointed out, there is a thin line painted on the model along where the stripe goes - driver's side. this is surely to guide the people or machines sticking the stickers on.
the rear deck is plastic while the rest of the places the stickers are is metal. and that rear deck had a solid bit of this white stuff as it crossed the edge. i guess the QC testing showed that extra guidance was needed (?). i was extra-careful cleaning the plastic, but in the end i'm not sure i needed to be.
i used nail polish remover (you unmarried guys will have to go to the local CVS or Walgreens) but considered using GoofOff (my wife doesn't do nail polish more than once or twice a year, so i was surprised she had any in the house). i dipped q-tips into the nail polish remover and scrubbed/wiped (the roof was easy, the hood was hard) the "stuff" off. i guess it's paint, but who knows. use a new q-tip frequently or you'll liquefy the "stuff" and end up spreading it around. it took me three q-tips (so six q-tip ends) to do the car. the big chunk in the back on the plastic came right off, though required much more careful detail cleaning given the volume of the crap.
btw, hot wheels did a junky job on the interior. disappointing. hopefully someone will come out with a better version with a proper CS-design, alcantara interior, proper central tunnel, dash, etc. etc.
I don't know whether to be scared or amused...
