All Time Favorite List - 1993 Collector # 238 - Zender Fact 4

I have begun to dig in to the earlier pieces of my collection and pick out some of the cars I find particularly awesome. What you are looking at is the 1993 Zender Fact 4. An actual supercar produced in Germany in the late 80's as a concept car. the proportions of the car are not the best match to the real version, but still I appreciate the distinct style, reminiscent of the Lamborghini Countach. What grabs my attention with this one are the understated tampos, the UH rims and the blue metal flake paint. I have tried to photograph it in such a way as to show it off but my camera skills are not the greatest so the image does not do it justice. It is a beautiful shade of blue, offset with the dark tinted glass bits. Now that I am looking at it again I have to say it is the coloring  that makes this one so striking to me.

2010 First Editions #5 0f 52 - Scorcher

This latest first edition has a definite import tuner feel to it. I'm not sure if it is based on a real car but the front does remind me of some Peugeot designs. I doubt a real car would have such a low roofline, exposed carbon fiber engine cover with windows and a roof scoop. Its a nice casting, it looks fast when its standing still.
