Both of them are pretty beautiful. The Jaguar one I had it featured on my Blog once, but the Nissan I don't remember seeing it before, but by the sticker on the front, it seems to be from Japan (Mini-Z CUP), could have been on one of my Mini-Z Cup posts, so many pictures...

I'm also looking for surprises, but I guess we'll only see what has already been leaked ahead of the show. We'll see...

I would much rather have white body's to race with.
DTM.
WTCC.
LM group C.
Some other racing category like Scirocco R, Polo R, other japanese and european small cars for racing.
What about the enduro series that the Audi R8 LMS Ulta competes in. Not just the Ferrari 458. But also SRT Viper, Mercedes SLS, BMW M4, Porsche 911 RSR, Ford GT40 and Chevrolet Corvette C07.

More racing livery for our racing and not just for shelves and show.

I agree 100% with you. Also, let's not forget WRC and ERC Rally Cars

Thats true.
I forgot since I don't race them.

I forgot, how about V8 Supercars and EuroV8Series.
Some cool racing cars there too.
Don't think I have seen a Holden mini-z before....

Also there are many Formula1's that we could "need". From the 1980 and 1990.

yes kyoshosan... they are pics from a miniz cup in japan... sometimes i save some pictures of the cars they post... they are quite passionate about it... i wish they could post some concourse cars... i remember following a blog wherein a very avid japan gtc fan would replicate liveries on autoscales and go to the actual race and have the driver pose alongside the actual car with his son (sometimes) and the replica mini-z... sometimes he'd be lucky enough to have his mini-z car signed by the actual driver... simply amazing... i will try to find the blog and pics... and post them in an appropriate thread...

yes i agree on the rally cars as well... haven't seen a holden but i did see a vauxhall, kyosho actually came out with one...

vintage and retro f1's sound pretty cool... i've seen some custom jobs including a 6 wheel elf... would sure like to see kyosho come out with more f1's as well... any actually... members of the nia (a kyosho mini-z f1 club in japan) have been able to come out with their own customized versions of most of the cars on the grid for the past few years...

What makes f1 so difficult for Kyosho? Can't all be licensing.

I guess it must be sales volume, F1 is not the most popular category in Mini-Z, same fate as all other categories except the MR-Family Series.

not to take this off track but this makes sense to some degree however when you consider the pool of candidate vehicles is exponentially smaller than the MR series, it doesn't add up.
