A BRAND NEW Auto World Release!

Auto World Corvette

A few months ago, I was excited to hear that there was soon going be another competitor in the die cast market. I didn’t follow the brand closely but happened upon 3 that were laying on a shelf at one of our local stores. It appeared that they were doing a reset and will be carrying the brand in the future. Out of the 3 remaining, I chose the ’67 Chevy Corvette 427.

  • Simon Petrides

    Love it , But is this an offshoot of JL ,what’s the story?

    • I don’t believe it is Simon. Auto World (Round 2) boasted all new tooling for these cars. These are true-scaled 1:64 pieces. The $2.99 price point and $5.99 price point don’t even share common tooling. It’s going to be a line to watch.

      • John Falk

        It is an offshoot of Johnny Lightnings. A man named Thomas Lowe bought the rights and started producing Johnny Lightning cars back in 1994. He sold the company and now it is sadly stopped production. But not before I got 17 years worth of phenomenal castings. Fast forward to now and Mr. Lowe owns Autoworld and has of course released these new lines of cars. So Psyched for these. I have a few.

        • Thanks for the info John. Sad to see that JL is at its end. I bought a lot of them in the early Playing Mantis days.

  • Christian Downes

    I can’t wait to get one of these to check them out! They look great! Thanks for the awesome pics once again Tony!
    Question: It says they are true 1:64 scale…. how do they compare in size to the Hotwheels? Or are they closer to some of the matchbox cars?

    • When compared to Hot Wheels, they are roughly the same size. Hot Wheels seems to scale/exaggerate certain features of their castings to fit in their product line. For detail, think along the lines of GreenLight or Johnny Lightning.
