I actually saw a bunch of these old Technic supercars in an optician’s shop window not too long ago. I was surprised of how big they were.
I’m not a Technic guy, so they’re too big and niche for me, though they look quite impressive…
Ha! This reminds me the first time I have seen Technic cars in real life. I was also surprised by how big they were! 😀
Dang! That looks sweet! I have a couple of the Speed Champions Ferraris. 🤗
