Hot Wheels ’15 Jaguar F-Type Project 7

Two years ago, the Project 7 concept charged about at Goodwood, tyre smoke clearing to reveal frantically waving chequebooks. Then design director Ian Callum announced this even sexier F-type was all a big tease. Waving of larger chequebooks ensued, and now we’re driving the production car. Just 250 are being built, the £135k tag representing a £43k premium over the V8 R Convertible. All are sold.

The one reason why I bought this casting was that it was a Jag. Jag’s are few and far between within diecast circles in a small scale, so this was one of those impulse buys to add to the HW masses.

I have say that it is an OK model. I am not that bowled over by it. It just looks a little cartoonish for my liking and does not have the fluidity of a Jag or the car it is based on. I mean you could use it one of those HW tracks – not that I have any nor bothered by them.

Also more proof that HW are about racing. I have to say that the MB Jag F-Type is class – as a diecast model and should be the only one you should consider adding to your collection. It is smart, taut and what a Matchbox or small diecast should be.

Some will find the HW F-Type appealing, but for once I have to say that I do regret making a purchase…….it is OK, but I need to be far more careful than just looking and buying on a whim.
