Not models of the S but I contacted Maisto and got a quote on having custom MINI's painted up.... not a bad price car per car but the setup fee per color is high.

If anyone is interested in getting them made with their company logo's, mini2 logo, etc, just let me know and I'll forward the info to you.

Gee, that picture of the Cooper S model looks very familiar, where I have seen it before? I guess they don't even have a prototype yet to show.

I guess they got permission to build the model, copyright on BMW's photo's may have been assumed.

Notice the Commodore at the bottom. Marketed as the "Monaro" in oz where it's designed and built. I think perhaps the door shutlines on the model are an improvement on the real thing.......

The Feb 18th AUTOWEEK had a blip on General Motors newly hired 'car guy'-Bob Lutz- taking a trip to OZ to study the possiblity of importing the Holden GTS coupe or the Monaro into the US, badged as Pontiacs GTOs. The column reported the GTS has a 402BHP, 5.7l V-8 with a 6-spd manual transmission.

What is your opinion of the performance and reliability of those two models? Which is the better car in your opinion.

Ummm, i'm not a big fan of Holden vehicles. But if it helps, the Holden Special Vehicle (HSV) models imported into the UK are supposed to compete with the 5 series BMW.
In Oz, that would be seen as something of a joke.

Performance and General reliability is fine. Build quality has never been a strong point. And depreciation of those cars here is amazing. If you listen carefully you can almost hear them.........


If your interested, you'd best have a drive


cheers

Thanks for the reply. It doesn't seem very imminent, that the GTS or Monaro will arrive in the US, as Lutz was just recently on his first fact finding trip to oz. However, I am hopeful that something useful will come from his interest in performance cars. The US buyer has been locked out of the market for some fine foreign performance cars like Nissan Skyline GT-R, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo's, Lotus Elise & Exige, Porsche GT2, etc. for a long time. Now it looks like that may change with the possible import of the Lancer VII, Elise, Alfa Romeo, Maserati and others over the next couple of years.
