First Look: Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Ferrari 365 GTS4 Daytona...
Time is not something I have today, but this surely a model to get out and show off.
After only two previous versions, in the Ferrari Racers series and as a Valentine's Day exclusive, the Ferrari 365 GTS4 Daytona Spyder finally gets its due. And it is a stunner.
And just a bit of irony with this Miami Vice car. The black "Daytona Spyder" used in Miami Vice was actually a modified Corvette posing as a Ferrari. When Ferrari got word they had a conniption fit and the producers were forced to give Crockett & Tubbs another sensible detective fleet car, a Ferrari Testarossa. Well Hot Wheels has turned the tables, first releasing the white Testarossa, but the wrong Testarossa, the 512M. Now they release what was in real life not a Ferrari, but this time a real Ferrari casting. All is right when things are balanced. Thanks Hot Wheels for the feng shui.
I am at peace.
(Find the Daytona Spyder and other Retro Entertainment at Wheel Collectors, and be sure to mention Lamley for a 10% discount. Or snag other versions of the Ferrari 365 on ebay. Whether hardtop or convertible, this is a beautiful model...)
