I was just browsing and I keep bumping in a new Kyosho model, namely the Miura p400 SV. Now, I cannot really find a good picture of it, I dont know if there is really a difference between the AUTOart version and the Kyosho one. :confused

Anyone can help? I wouldn't like buying the same car with a different name....

Thanks!

I have the Miura SV by AUTOart and it's terrific. I never seen one side by side the Kyosho version, but frankly I don't think there will be a big difference between them. Either one, I'll sure you will like it. Get the one you find for the cheapest.

I already have the AUTOart version in yellow. I agree with that it is terrific!

My problem is a different one..... I dont know if they are any different or not.

For example. AUTOart produces the 5000s, Kyosho the lp500. Different name = different car?
Not exactly, one was sold in Europe, the other in the USA. But esentially, they were quite the same. I might check the Miura later on when I find suitable pics of the kyosho version.

If anyone already has the Kyosho version, or has some good pics. Please post them or give me a link were I can find any.

Thanks

Oh, I understand now. From what I know, the LP500 and the 5000S are the same model. The real cars were different, but very subtlely (engine, if I recall right). But in 1:18 they're the same. Some of the Lambos from AUTOart, on the 1st run, had the dashboard installed upside down. the new stuff is free from that.

Yep, the Countach are technically different. Bodywise, they are the same (or almost).

BTW. Does kyosho keep a certain model availible for a very lonnngggg time? I always wanted the Jota version, and I thought all hope was lost since it was first produced years ago, but I still can find it in almost all online shops. Maybe they will do the same with the new Miura. I hope that is.

Well, if they do like what they did to the Competizione, I don't think the models will stick around for long. Whoever missed the Competizione in March will only find it on eBay, from now on.

Oh yes I heard about the rarity of that model.... but there are about 5 availible in Malta! Strange isn't it.

Maybe they had to lower the production as an agreement with Mattel. Who knows. However, their lamborghini models are pretty much availible everywhere. Plus, I very much like them.I have seen some pictures of the Jota in red from another tread.... very nice indeed. ( I may be getting it this month :waiting)

I am curious about their new Miura though. I think it is the same one Anson produced some time ago. If it is that one, then it is different than the AUTOart one. Slightly, but noticeable.

I have only seen pics of the Kyosho Miura, and it does look good, but I have the AUTOart Miura SV and it is an excellent model. I doubt you would be disappointed with either!

On a side note, I saw a beautiful 1:1 red Miura on the road today and it looked amazing! :cheers

Thank you very much Denali.

I have compared it to my yellow AUTOart Miura. I can say that they are identical except for some minor(very minor) details.

Strange isn't it that Kyosho decided to put on the market such a car when its main rival has already made it availible.

I can surely say that many Lambo and Miura fans already got the AUTOart..... strange marketing...
