    Hi guys,

    I just got my latest diecast today. I ordered it off of ebay last week. It is a Hotwheels 1:18th scale Enzo, finished in a pearl white colour. It looks great sitting between my yellow and red enzos.
    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about it, as i have never seen this color before.
    I know if came from the factory like this. But does anyone know how many were made? or better yet, how many people have or have seen one in white.
    As i said before, this is the first one that i have seen.

    Thanks

    Kerbie

    Is it the "WHIPS" version... if so, that's a "regular" production item by Hotwheels... if it's the pearl white with regular wheels, some one must have swapped the WHIPS wheels for the regular ones... as far as I know HW has never made the white Enzo in non-WHIPS form...

    Any chance you could post some pictures of it? I would be interested in seeing what a Whips version looks like with regular wheels.

    Thanks!

    If it's a WHIPS enzo than it should have a two-toned interior. It would also probably say on the bottom.

    Very nice pics Kirby. Did you have trouble keeping both doors opening up like that? On both of my HW Enzos, only one stay up and the other slants down...

    Was this the one white Enzo on Ebay that sold for $31 not too long ago?

    Thanks

    i tried to get some. the camera wouldnt focus though. here is what i got.
    As you can see, the dash was color matched white. a cool feature that isnt on the regular colored ones.

    No i had not trouble at all. they are actually still up. this is the only one out of the 3 that even one door stays up. they have been open for 3 days now. i'm going to leave it like that as long as i can.

    Yes this is the white enzo that sold on ebay. got it for 30 actually. i was the only bidder.

    that would be an excellent color to add to my collection. i may have to do that. Do you know what cavalino is charging? I may get them to do a blue one for me.
    let me know what you think of it once you get it.

    Very Nice Cavallino! There is one reason why im getting this the Enzo in Grigio Titanio. After working on the real Enzo in this color. I have to get this in 1:18 scale for sentimental reasons. I heard there were only 2 Grigio Titanio made in production, and the color is amazing! I will be callin soon Cavallino, thanks for the photo...

    What is widescreen frame on the Enzo?

    I think Cavallino Enzo in the photo is Grigio Titanio not Argento Nurburgring, if im not mistaken...

    Absolutely correct, they should NOT be colour coded.
