Model: 2018 Maserati Gran Turismo MC
Line: RMZ City, casting 3993, 2019 Junior Collection
eBay link: RMZ City Maserati Gran Turismo
Why it’s in my collection: The Maserati Gran Turismo is one of my bucket list cars to own in 1:1 scale, so of course I had to add one to the 1/64 collection…the only problem is that one didn’t exist until recently. The real life Gran Turismo came out a dozen years ago, so to only get a 1/64 version in 2019 is a fairly long time to wait. So you can imagine how pumped I was to find this obscure RMZ City version on eBay. I double-tapped that BIN button so hard, ha!
RMZ City is a brand I wasn’t familiar with, but they seem to have some nice castings. They have the Maserati of course, along with the new Aston Martin Vantage, a Dodge Demon, and several others. To me, the GT was a must-have, especially in that amazing blue color.
I know some 1/64th cars from China are unlicensed, but the Maserati (and other RMZs) seem to be licensed. There is a Maserati product sticker on the box as well – which is how this version of the car came: boxed.
The car is boxed “loose” and isn’t attached via the base, although there is a spot on the center of the chassis that looks like it should be mounted to something.
The car is pretty well done. The front grille is detailed, the headlights and tail lights are tampos, and the car seems to be scaled and sized perfectly.
I would compare the car to a Maisto or older Bburago car with generic wheels and black windows. I paid around $15ish dollars for it, which is a lot for a standard “mainline” car, but it’s the only way to get a 1/64 Gran Turismo, so it was an easy buy for me.
I also did a video unboxing/review on it, so give it a watch and let me know what you think of the car 🏁
