MINICHAMPS’ 2009 Lamborghini LP670-4SV
1:43 | $60
Take the latest all-wheel-drive Murcielago, add a big wing and some aero tweaks, pump the V-12 engine up to 670 Italian-born stallions, and you’ve got a 200-plus mph hot rod Lambo capable of reaching 60mph in just 2.8 seconds. That’s what Italians call “Super Veloce”. Minichamps’ new 1:43 diecast model is an exceptionally precise scaling of the car, wearing the same bright yellow color worn by the SV featured on the cover of the November 2009 Road & Track, minus the cover beauty’s Euro-spec amber side reflectors. Its rounded-wedge shape is dead on from every angle, and the flawless paint is set off by crisply printed black window moldings and silver “Lamborghini” and “SV” badges. Trim details on the V-12 can be seen through the unique rear deck windows, and the upholstery patterns, instrument faces, and console details are accurate, as well. There are asymmetric-tread tires on each authentic star-pattern wheel, and black carbon-ceramic disks with correct yellow Lambo-badged calipers are visible behind them. Cap all this off with well-done, relief-molded chassis detail on the baseplate, and you have a superb model of a true supercar. Bellissimo.
