    I have just had a Hotwheels F355 GTS resprayed in actual Ferrari Black. The car has been finished in a beautiful mirror finish. It was done by a professional bodyshop that paints my car. It is for sale, any offers......

    Well the rear lights are the main error on the HW, they are too small, round, low and dark.
    Gosh that black GTS is expensive!

    How much you want? I would love to add this to my collection. I have a yellow 355 GTS by Mattel, which took me quite a while to find. The Black one sounds great. I saw the UT F355 GTS at Cavallino, pretty pricy.

    Dana, Maisto recently released a bunch of 1:24 models; die cast metal frame and some minor assembly and viola! i picked up three (the only three i saw) a week or two ago; one of which was a yellow 355 Spider... If yellow 355s are your thing, a new 1:24 model might only be toy store-trip away... i posted pictures of mine in this thread...

    I am glad that you guys posted the info. I just ordered mine from E-bay.
    The total cost was about $30.00, not bad at all. Can't wait to get this little jewel home and put it together. I had my eye on the Red UT which the price is a little out there. I also saw a Black Mattel GTS @ Cavallinomodels for around $100.00, and the spider made by mattel for $125.00. These are truly rare and hard to find.

    I went into Toys R Us here in Houston today, and just as you said I found the F355 Spider in Red and yellow in the 1:24 scale in kit form. I waited to buy these two and when I made it to the office, I looked around on E-bay and found the seller, selling the 1:18 F355 GTS in Black for $16.99. Couldn't resist, had to have it.. Got Weak..

    Dana, that's awesome, congratulations... You should take pictures if you have the time, and post them... The only 355s i have in my collection are the yellow one i mentioned and a 1:64... No others... Some folks like one of each color, but i'm not at that point yet; are you well suited with just the black one or will you be picking up the red and yellow models, as well...?
