    Check out this odd mispackaged Hotwheels I got today! It claims its a Ferrari 308. I went to the garage and compared it to my 308GTS, and its not a very accurate model! I'm pretty sure its not a GT4 either.

    I'm pretty sure that's a Dino.

    Interesting story... true story

    That is a special one-off 308 prototype by design house Zepplin. It was supposed to be the answer to clients complaints about the GT4. It was to go into production, but alas Pininfarina had a faster version, what we know now as the 308 GTB/GTS. Of course, Enzo really liked the light weight of Zepplin's concept, hence the fiberglass GTB.

    LMAO...! That's just hilarious...! This whole thread is funny...


    i went to the store once and saw a 1:18 Lamborghini Diablo in a box that advertised it as a Jalpa or a Miura or something like that... i've seen a few mistakes like that, before...

    My four year old asked if I'd open it up so he can play with it. I had to say no. A four year old can make you feel really guilty! I don't think they are very rare, Mattel made at least two this way that I've seen. I just bought it for the novelty.

    I bought a Hot Wheels 57 Corvette which looked a lot like an Enzo.
