This 488 Ferrari was won on Ebay for $25; I love when I find good deals. The Ferrari had a broken wing and missing both mirrors. The auctions like this one are where you’ll find really good cars
The first thing I did after receiving the 488 Ferrari was put the wing back on. I used Super Gel Gorilla glue, it dries strong and is clear. I let it dry for about 2 hours before playing with the car. You’ll see from the pictures you can’t tell where it was glued on.
The car drives like a brand new car, I’m assuming the first owner rarely played with the car. The stickers show no wear and the paint is very good. There were no modifications done to the car at all.
LaFerrari is one slot car that I’ve waited for quite sometime to get. These cars tend to go for around $50, but I was able to get one for $25. Carrera did a really good job on these cars. The detail with the mirrors and vents is amazing.
The size of the car is 1/32 but it feels a little bigger. It seems like it’s a little heavier than a Scalextric car. This is truly the first new Carrera 1/32 car I’ve purchased and I’m very proud of it.
The smoothness of this car is amazing as it goes around the track. I’m assuming this has a lot to do with the placement of the magnet in the chassis. It seems to stick to the track very well even as the car gets up to top speed.
It’s a quiet car, unlike the rough sound from older slot cars. The engine sound is kind of a unique winding noise that matches the cool look of the car. There’s no lights on either the front or the back but there is a driver.
