Proof that Matchbox gets better and better: Lamborghini Centenario
I have always loved Matchbox, but they have improved so much in the past couple years and this Centenario proves that statement.
I have featured a couple of Centenarios on this profile. I have a Maisto 1/18 model a Hot wheels Centenario Roadster and now this Matchbox Centenario. The Hot Wheels Roadster is a great casting with lots of detail and proper proportions. I liked how it was a roadster and I like how this Matchbox one is a coupe so I can have two different variations for my collection.
My Maisto 1/18 Lamborghini Centenario
Front details and textures
The Hot Wheels Centenario had both front and rear details and so does the Matchbox model. The headlights have all of the realistic patterns in them and are all painted in shiny white and silver. The raging bull logo is right on the nose and looks amazing on the model. The cheese grater splitter is apart of the base, which is yellow and there is yellow highlights farther up on the bumper to match with the splitter.
Now this Matchbox model is not a part of the mainline series. Which means it costs $2.99, but when you pay that you get more detail and features. One of which is opening scissor doors. They are plastic, but open and close very smoothly. The casting even has mirrors which makes the casting look much better than others without mirrors. The interior seats have the real textures on them and the steering wheel resembles that of the real Centenario. The a/c vents have line textures and the center console and screen are textured. The glass of the engine bay is clear plastic and the 6.5 L naturally aspirated V-12 is textured to look real. The model even has the cross strut bar. Not to mention even the rear wing is up.
Rear details and textures
As for the rear, there is quite a lot of detail. The long taillights are painted bright red and the silver "Lamborghini" lettering lies between them. The cheese grater design on the rear is painted in yellow and the signal lights are painted red. The entire exhaust system is textured and painted silver, which looks outstanding. Lastly the license plate reads "Centenario".
I was so excited to find this Lamborghini out in the wild today. It has lots of detail and awesome scissor doors that work perfectly. I would highly recommend that you get your hands on one for yourself because I am sure you will love it. As always if you enjoyed don't forget to bump and follow for more content daily!
