Unboxing the 1/18 AUTOart LFA that Lexus Manila gave our boss

For all the collectors out there

AUTOart Lexus LFA

Our boss, Summit Media president Lisa Gokongwei-Cheng, cut the ribbon at yesterday's formal launch of the Lexus Gallery in Robinsons Magnolia. To show their appreciation, Lexus Manila chairman Alfred Ty and president Danny Isla gifted her with a special-edition 1/18 AUTOart Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package die-cast scale model. She got a "Whitest White" piece.

The die-cast model is so special that it comes with a certificate of authenticity and bears a serial number, which makes this a more valuable item among collectors. Our boss promptly handed the toy car to us and asked if we wanted to give it away in a contest here on our website. (Such a cool boss, isn't she?) We told her she should give it to her son instead.

Anyway, we borrowed the die-cast model and unboxed it just to see its details. What we saw impressed us, and we'd like to share the images with you. Enjoy!
