1:18 diecast model of Elvis Presley's Ferrari Dino 308 GT4. The 308 GT4 is a very important car in Ferrari's history: it was their first road car to have a mid-engine, V8 layout. It was also the first Ferrari to sport bodywork designed by Bertone. Elvis decided to buy the black Dino in October 1976, and add it to his already extensive collection of exotic cars. The Ferrari is currently on display at the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum in Graceland. Mattel has done a great job replicating the King’s Dino. The spoked wheels look very nice, and we're particularly impressed that Mattel has recreated the car's orange oil filter.
