Toy Taurus SHOs arrive in time for the holidaysTue, 07 Dec 2010 00:00:00 -0800
With the holiday season upon us, enthusiasts are looking for ways to broaden their collections without breaking the bank. To that end, an Indianapolis company is making the Taurus SHO a bit more accessible.
GreenLight Collectibles is offering 1:24 scale replicas of the reborn Taurus SHO in the factory-correct paint schemes of red candy (limited to 756 copies), tuxedo black (504 units) and ingot silver (504 units). The cars have working hoods, detailed engines, metal chassis and bodies and rubber tires.
The SHO returned after more than a decade off the market with a reveal at the 2009 Chicago auto show. The car has a 365-hp EcoBoost V6 and serves as a halo for Ford's flagship sedan line.
The SHO replicas will be available this month at hobby shops around the nation. They cost $32.99.
GreenLight has previously done replicas of auction cars, muscle cars and police cruisers.
