Model car maker Pocher has confirmed that it will bring it newest toy car for exhibit at the 2013 Salon Privé. Pocher started to make a name for painstaking detail and high quality model cars after unveiling the first 1:8 scale kit of the Fiat 130HP at the Milan toy fair in in 1966. The model car maker also created scale kits for vehicle like Mercedes Benz 500K, Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 and a Ferrari F40.
These model cars were available up to 1998, when Pocher released its final model, the Porsche 911. Pocher joined the Hornby Group in 2004, but remained in the sidelines until December 2012, when Hornby disclosed the “resurgence of a legend” in the coming year. The 2013 Salon Privé will be Pocher’s second excursion with the new Aventador LP700-4 1:8 kit.
New Aventador LP700-4 1:8 kit that will be exhibited at the Salon Privé Luxury Retail Village will be a ready-painted 7-kg model made from premium metal die-cast.
Aventador LP700-4 1:8 kit, which can be assembled for both left-hand and right-hand drive, is comprised of over 600 parts made from a variety of materials like pre-painted die-cast metal, rubber, textiles and premium quality plastic.
The kit is available in two colors: Arancio Argos and Bianco Isis. Tickets for Salon Privé can be availed by visiting www.salonprivelondon.com or by calling the Ticket Hotline on 0808 100 2205.
Lamborghini has always considered design as the beauty of aggressive power and as the elegance of dynamics. Wrapped in the brand's distinctive design language while featuring dynamic proportions, precise surfaces and exact lines, the new Aventador cannot be denied as a Lamborghini.
This design language was particularly developed by designers in the Centro Stile Lamborghini to provide an edge to the Aventador. Even at a glance, the Aventador is recognizable as a work of art in every aspect of its design, starting from its front end to its rear diffuser. Nonetheless, every form on the new Aventador is influenced by the need for speed while every line is dictated by its function. Despite all of these, the new Lamborghini Aventador is surely a supercar that your eyes could feast on.
At first look, the new Aventador has spectacularly impressive proportions, as influenced by its well-thought dimensions: 4.78 meters (188.19 inch) in length, 2.26 meters (88.98 inches) in width -- including the exterior mirrors -- 1.136 mm (44.72 inches) in height. These proportions are properly complemented by the unique doors of the new Aventador that open upward.
These doors were first seen on the legendary Lamborghini Countach, and were then employed in subsequent V12 models like the Lamborghini Diablo and Murcielago. Of course, Aventador’s immediate predecessor -- the Murcielago – also had some influenced on the latest Lamborghini: electronically managed air intakes that opens according to the outdoor temperature and the requirement for cooling air, thereby optimizing aerodynamic efficiency when needed. Lamborghini also allows customers to show off the powerful V12 engine of the new Aventador through the optional transparent engine bonnet.
