    Oh damn, I though the black one was. I know the yellow and red isn't yet.

    sportcraftcars has a pretty good picture in their Chicago Toy Show report. It looks like it's going to be outstanding.

    Where is the best place to place a pre-order?

    They say it will be out first quarter of 2008.

    Kyosho calls it a F40 "Light Weight" simply to serperate it from their other F40.

    This version has the OZ Racing wheels in black, sliding windows, Tubi exhaust and red inner door panels.
    In real life these changes would save weight, hence the name.

    Just noticed the pic, does look good in black. But nothing beats red.

    True, but the red inner door panels and sliding windows were on some F40's from the factory as well.

    The exhaust and wheels are 100% aftermarket though. I love the look!
