Model. An IMSA spec antenna that long would be VHF which is thinner. UHF would be that thick but way much shorter. If it's real, that's either a special lower freq antenna (maybe for testing or telemetry tests) or a non working show unit.

Thanks,

I'm not as scientific about it as Ismael, so I'll just say that the antenna "doesn't look right to me". B) And it might just be my failing eyesight, but it seems like the decals are slightly translucent and showing some of the body color. I vote for model.

Model,

wheels are not deep enough, weird model. I would say the mulimedia wheelskit from MrModeller.

The doors looks like they cannot be opened, so could be a Revell Enzo as base-model and the mentioned Antenna.

Don't look right to me. The doors for one as Steef said, the tire markings are too shiny for my liking, and just doesn't look right the mirrors antenna decals etc. :o definitely going with model on this one. B)

IMSA on an Enzo?


If an Enzo runs in IMSA ALMS it would be in GT1 category like the MC12 that ran in Atlanta, which is based on the Enzo. GTS would be the older category 2005 and before. So those are C6R decals. (The show car still had GTS decals on it) Also the ALMS logo changed for 2006/2007. That's a 2005 ALMS logo.
But don't get me wrong, it looks GREAT!

Thanks,

I will say model, just because of the wiper, if you look closely it is barely touching the windshield in the center and that is a common mistake on model kits. The real car wiper frame is thinner and has a sectioned architecture to allow the blade to travel among the wide windshield contour.
