    I have one in red and it's decent, could be better, but it's the only 1:18 Zonda out there. I'd recommend it.

    I have that exact model in that color---like Cubsfan said---it's ok and your only choice----It is def. not near the quality of an AutoArt or Kyosho... Motormax is similair to a regular Hot Wheels in quality...

    I have the 1:18 S7 they made and I think the quality is a little less than the regular hot wheels, the interior is horrible not even attempting to put decals or anything, just one solid piece of plastic.

    Actually on the Zonda they did a great job IMO. It beats most of the regular Hot Wheels. Most people would complain about the wheels, but if measured it would be found that they are more accurate than the wheels on the 599 Elite from HW or their Elite F430.
    Well worth the $18 asking price.

    My issue with the wheels is that the Pagani logo in the middle is a cheap looking sticker, other than that I agree there not bad.

    I have 2 other Motormaxs, their Chrysler ME 4-12 which is a fantastic model for the price, and their Dodge Viper SRT-10 Convertible which is pretty bad and I replaced it with the Autoart.

    Did you also meusure the 599 wheels? Because i'm thinking of buying one and putting Challenge Stradale wheels on it. The CS wheels are about 29cm in diameter.
    So now i'm interested in the diameter of the 599 pentagram wheels to see if it's going to be an improvement :)

    I also have a blue one, think to be honest the quality is better in some respects than the HotWheels and I feel the MotorMax are great value for money.

    French manufacturer Solido also seems to have the Zonda C12 in scale 1/18 in their program :)

    The CS wheels and tires look way better on the 599 than the original wheels. Few people on here have made the swap and had posted pictures.
    By the way where are you getting the wheels and tires from? You are not going to ruin a 360CHS just to get the wheels, right?

    Solido is just Motormax's name in Europe, they're the exact same model in the exact same colors.

    Solido made some awesome diecast in the 1960's. I have a few and they are some of my favorite in my collection. I have seen some of the new stuff they put out, and kinda like it to.
    I just wish they would update the site they have had under construction the last 12 or more months....
