Model of the Day: Kyosho Aston Martin V8 Vantage...

Scroll down to the post we put up before this one.  You will see a group of supercars made by Hot Wheels.  Some good, some not so good.

But it put us in the mood to see something in the supercar variety that is really good.  Enter the Aston Martin V8 Vantage by Kyosho.  And it is not the current V8 Vantage you would see zipping around Top Gear.  It is the fantastic 70's version, released in 1977.

Current Astons are gorgeous, classic Astons are beautiful, 70's Astons have a bit of that Goodfellas growl.  And that is why we added one to the Lamley collection, in British Racing Green no less.

We thought we would go into the weekend with green machine instead of the wimpier green model we showed in the previous post.  It makes us feel better about things...

(Oh, and there are still a few of these left at Daboxtoys.)
