Kyosho "SuperCar" series?

Hi,

I'm curious to ask if anyone else has expressed interest in a "SuperCar" series from Kyosho...the obvious ones like Lambo and Ferrari are there but what chance is there to see some lesser known supercars like:

1. Pagani Zonda
2. Maserati MC12 Corsa
3. Koenigsegg
4. Ferrari FXX


I could go on and on but I think my point is made...I was hoping to see some more"exclusive impossible to own" cars in the Kyosho lineup.

Thanks for your time.

ever think about how much it would cost Kyosho for the rights to be able to produce the replica of those cars? I'm pretty sure that's part of the reson why

I'd love to see theme do the Vector, and the Koenig Specials Ferrari Competition, Porsche 911 wide body, 928 wide body, and a few others as well.
But possibly the rights has something to do with it, as well as the possibility that they are not as well known, and there for might not sell enough for it to be worth Kyosho's effort.

I just saw that car last night on Top Gear. One awesome ride. Still, for supercars, I'd like to see the second Vector, dont' like the last one,
and my all time favorite as mentioned before, the car's from Koenig Specials.
Take a look at their web site, www.Koenig-Specials.com and you'll see some sweet highly-tuned exotics. Those would make for some killer MR02 bodies.
Enough from me now..........................

The McLaren F1 LM is not exclusive enough for you? j/k

The FXX is close enough to an Enzo, we might just see Kyosho release one. The P4/5 would also be a cool Enzo variation to see as an autoscale. What I'd like to see are some of the not so recent supercars, like the Ferrari 288 GTO and the Jaguar XJ220.

How about the Astin Martin Vanish from James Bond's Die Another Day? That would be a sweet Skynet AutoScale! Also, didn't the bad guy have a armored Jaguar?

The P4/5 may be hard to do because there are only 2 made. A customer of my customer has both of them. One for show and one for go. Not bad for between 4-5 million a piece.

kyosho should already have the DBR9 licensing since they already have the lexan body for the 10th scale. It'll be an awesome autoscale for sure. The Mucielago GT would also be great.
