The U.K.’s signature transport.

Introduced in 1958, the Austin FX4 quickly evolved into the U.K.’s signature transport. Initial models were outfitted with a 2.2L Austin diesel engine; gasoline engine-equipped models were available from 1962 onward. Surprisingly, the trademark black paint scheme wasn’t mandatory. Most FX4s just happened to be delivered in that color! Kit features a single-piece body with fine surface textures, a separately detailed chassis, an opening hood with realistic engine hoses, a detailed interior with a dividing barrier and instrumentation, rotating wheels, a metal axle, extensive chrome pieces and license plate decals.

Engineered without compromise.

The open-air Audi R8 Spyder avoids the pitfalls associated with other open-air vehicles, namely excess weight and a weak chassis. The end result is a no-compromise performer, thanks to a V-10 engine that goes from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 195 mph. Kit features a lift-up rear deck with a fully detailed V-10 engine, a highly detailed suspension, realistic transaxle detail, the option of having the top “up” or “down,” movable front wheels, soft black tires, chrome-plated parts and decals with graphics and vent screens.

V-8 powered fury.

Announced on July 21, 2008, the 2010 Camaro’s signature styling was inspired by the classic ’69 Camaro. The SS version with automatic transmission features a 400 hp L99 V-8 engine which propels it from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds – and a full quarter-mile in 13.1 seconds. Kit features an opening hood with full engine detail, a factory aero package with side skirts and a front spoiler, a choice of SS package or custom wheels, soft black tires, chrome-plated parts and decals with stock markings and two optional accent trim packages.
