Guys,

Please don't buy the Bburago Miura, the quality and detail is bad. except one door nothing shuts properly. I bought it cause it was cheap 1300 bucks was a Muira P400 (with eyelashes) and in orange color.

The Bburago one is Miura P400 and the welly one is Miura SV (there is no orange one only red and yellow). There is a difference between the two is Miura P400 has got the famous Eyelashes where as SV model dosen't have, what SV has wider rear fenders (to accomodate wider pirelly tyres), 35 ps more power and different tail lights.

In an all if you think Miura = eyelashes then P400 is the model else SV is a good buy.

For the Price (almost same for bBurago and welly) the welly is leaps and bound ahead (I did not accepted this fact earlier in forum . Shankar sorry buddy).

Now comming to Big Daddy's both Autoart and Kyosho make Miura. Autoart only makes the SV where as the Kyosho makes both P400S and SV, so we have a choice here. Both have many colors to chose from.

But Kyosho is the choice among many collectors. Some day I will Have both kyosho models with me.

As for the Hotwheels one it is the concept car (recent one and not the original), it is 1:43 scale. The ebay link if we see closely the item location is in USA meaning huge shipment cost. Ebay india has this uncanny thing of listing some US ones in it.

Thank you!
I got it for 1900 including shipping.
Even I searched for this on their website now, but not able to find it! May be they are out of stock!

But i think the original 1971 Miura didn't have an ORVM as well.
Did an image search now and found this picture. So, guess Welly were right in excluding it!

That's a beautiful miura you've got yourself. Love the attention to detail, as it follows the original to the T, missing ORVM et. al

Cheers buddy

@ Diecast: Is that mclaren? AutoArt?.

Also, did you got them from abroad or are they available in India. All I have seen frequently are Maisto and Bburago with AutoArt being available only at select places. I have never seen kyoshos / Minichamps / Franklins etc. An pointers in this regard?

The F40 is a Kyosho.
"Automania" in Mumbai is the distributer for Kyosho, minichamps, Schuco etc., in India. Currently, These can be sourced either from Automania, or from "Gift Centre", both in Mumbai, the latter at which prices can be 25% more than the former. They do have the option of couriering the models though.

I doubt that you can get Kyosho F40 street version from any dealer in India
