Model Kit of the Year: Tamiya LaFerrari

Supercars are always some of the best models. Usually produced in no more than handfuls, the real stuff is often unobtanium for many, but kits can bring scaled down versions into a lot more hands. The LaFerrari is the supercar’s supercar. With an 800hp V12, a formula-one style kinetic energy recovery system providing an electric boost, and a 7-figure price tag, it’s an incredible and undoubtedly rare machine.

This 1/24 scale kit from Tamiya recreates all the best features. Separate V12 and chassis? Check. KERS system? Check. Accurate metal gratings for the intakes? Down to every last nerdy detail, check. You can own a real LaFerrari (hard) or watch it on Youtube (easy), but this model is a great way to honor the car and a great addition to the Hall.
