Tag Archives: Ferrari Diecast

This collection of articles looks at the diecast models produced for Ferraris, particularly in 1:18 scale.

This includes:
Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
Ferrari 458 Spider
Ferrari FF
Ferrari F12berlinetta

What I’ve tried to do is to bring together the best available content available on the Internet including photographs, videos and video reviews to provide one essential source of information.

I would also very much appreciate it if you could share your own thoughts on the models:
1) does it represent good value for money?
2) is there a model from another make that you think provides better value for money?

Models from the more expensive diecast model makers like Autoart are more detailed and usually more accurate but is the extra cost worth it?

Product Numbers For The Hot Wheels Ferrari 458 Italia and other coupés

It often gets very confusing between the three levels of Hot Wheels Models and it’s usually important to check the product numbers. If you are dealing with a reputable supplier, they will be very clear price differences. It gets much harder to buy from eBay when descriptions are often not as tightly defined as they should be.

Hot Wheels Elite

  • P9894 Italia yellow

Hot Wheels Elite Special Editions

These have an extra level of detail and are significantly more expensive.

  • T8422 Italia red
  • X5491 Italia GT2 Launch red

Non Elite aka Heritage or Foundation

These models are cheaper than the Elites but the level of detail isn’t as good and sometimes the bonnet and boots don’t open.

  • T6919 Italia pale blue – there has also been a red version but I haven’t found the code number for it
  • T6921 Italia black
  • BLY55 Speciale red
  • BLY56 Speciale white
  • BCT89 Challenge #5 red
  • BCJ77 Italia GT2 red

Product Numbers For The Hot Wheels Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

This gets confusing because there are three levels of Hot Wheels models for this car and that makes it harder to decide if you’re buying a bargain or you’re being asked to overpay.

There is a standard Hot Wheels model, there is an Elite version and there is an Elite Special Edition (aka super elite).

  • L7120 – this is the HWE special edition of the 612 Scaglietti Sessanta
  • L7127 – HWE Race China edition
  • L7129 – HWE 15000 Red Miles
  • P9918 – HWE Sessanta

There are also standard Hot Wheels models available of the 612 Scaglietti which look better than the current Heritage (non-elite) models that are being produced. It seems that the bonnet and boot open on these models.

  • C7524 – pewter
  • B6047 – red
  • H3062 – blue
  • M1196 – silver/black

Hot Wheels have also made a 1:43 scale model.
