Does anyone know (or heard), if Minichamps is ever going to produce the Jalpa in either 1:43 or 1:18.

Seems to me that right now, you can get just about every model Lamborghini ever produced except the Jalpa!

I just bought the 350GT, 400GT, Islero, Urraco, Espada, Jarama, Countach, LM002, Diablo, Murcielago and Gallardo in 1:43. But can't find a Jalpa anywhere! I did get a resin kit of the Jalpa from Raymond, but I am just curious if any of you SERIOUS collectors have heard any rumblings from the folks at AutoArt, IXO, Minichamps, etc.. if there are any plans in the work for the Jalpa (and Silhouette too)!

Does anyone know if there is a 1/18 die cast model for the LM002. I see that Minichamps makes a 1/43 but I would like a bigger model.

Good News everyone!

Looks like Minichamps is FINALLY going to release both the Jalpa and Silhouette in 1:43 scale in September!!!

103600 Lamborghini Jalpa 1981 - red
103620 Lamborghini Silhouette 1976 - white

This has been a LONG time coming!!! Now, if we can just get someone to produce them in 1:18 scale!

Finally!!!!

I just noticed this on eBay today. They must finally be arriving at the stores :)

One note, wonder why they decided to put the side view mirrors on the front wings as opposed to the doors? Oh well, I'm not going to complain, we've all be only waiting like 4 years for these to come out! I bet the Silhouette is right behind it:

The quality of the Minichamps are very good! I bought (3) of the Jalpa's. One for my office, one for my home collection, and one for my wife!

I also got a Silhouette too.
