The Bburago 1:32 Classic range comprises just ten models each in a choice of two colours*. All of them are tempting, I have so far succumbed on six occasions (over half the range). Three years ago in Paris I picked up the Citroen DS and Ford Capri 2600, both of which I have since seen here in Tbilisi. More recently I have added a Porsche 911, BMW 507, BMW 2002 and a Mercedes 450SL convertible.
The other cars in the range are: Alfa Romeo Spider, Citroen 2CV, VW Golf Mark 1 GTi, and a Mini Cooper. All very tempting. The “classic” range are significantly more expensive than the standard 1:32 range, they each come with a plastic plinth the standard range come with a cardboard plinth. All the cars have opening doors.
Above a selection of Bburago vehicles in Metro Mart the boxes are marked “Classic”, “Race”, “Plus” or just left blank…we see here the “Classic” models of the Ford Capri, Citroen 2CV, Citroen DS and Alfa Romeo Spider. I recently added added a 1973 BMW 2002, I really wanted the Porsche 911, but bizarrely the pricing in XS had the Porsche at 44.90 lari and other 1:32 classics at 29.80 lari, a huge difference. I found a Porsche 911 in the XS Toys at East Point priced at 31.90 lari and on a 30% sale day so just 22.35 lari, half the price of the first one I saw.
The Citroen DS3 (Bburago 1:32) is a regular 1:32 without the plastic plinth, the classics get.
*The Citroen 2CV only has one colour option.
