Panoz Esperante GTR-1 "Street Version" ~ 1997 ~ Vitesse/ONYX
The strange looking Esperante GTR-1 "Streed Version" is basically the homologation street version of the mad Panoz Esperante GTR-1 that ran in the GT1 class. The diffrences between the racing car and this on are minore and some details show where Vitesse cut the costs, for example the model is equipped with slicks which are not for road use. Other than that thing with the tires the model is a great showcase of Vitesse's craftmanship. In my oppinion the model is spot on whit everything: shape, stance and it is also a very heavy model for this scale. The golden racing rims go great with the car and behind them there are brake discs. The interior is visible through the greenish tinted side windows and the windshield. The headlights & tailights are well made.
As a conclusion I can say that this is a great model but the design of the car is either love it or hate it so, if you love it, you should get one.
