Ferrari GTO: HW

A classic beauty from the stable of the prancing horse.

Ferrari GTO from Hot Wheels 2008 First Editions
Classic Ferraris look beautiful in yellow. The same can't be said for the newer models though.

Despite having said numerous times that I'm not a fan of Ferrari, I already have 6 Ferrari die-casts in my collection, including this one. I know 6 is not many, but for someone who's not a fan, that's quite a lot. So why did I buy them? Well, the thing about Ferrari is that even if you don't really fancy it when you see the pictures in magazines and stuff, you'd still drool over one when you see the car in metal. The same goes for this GTO. I've seen this car countless times in various sales threads and forums, but I never thought about getting one, at least not until my friend showed the actual die-cast to me. As soon as I laid my eyes upon the car, I thought that it was a real beauty and I just can't resist the temptation to buy one. And I did.
