    Mira is the only manufacturer of the 1:18 512TR, while Mattel made the Testarossa and 512M. As Cavallino Models stated, they have it, and are probably the only source these days. I have not seen one on Ebay in over a year (unless it was from Cavallino Models).

    After much searching, I bought a red one and a black one from them.

    Minichamps did a very nice one in 1:43. I have it in yellow.

    My TR (only) is from BBurago. I bet it could be found on ebay.

    And welcome to Ferrarichat in general and this forum in particular. Cavallinomodels is a sponsor of FChat and a great company. I'm one of their happy customers.

    The one thing I never liked about the Mira 512TR is that the front end sits too high over the wheels. There is a lever underneath that pops up the headlights (nice touch), but the car sits nose high.

    Might be able to modify it to sit a little more level like the real car, but then again it is still a model and not too bad.

    Found mine on Ebay $15.00 it is the Mira 512 TR in Black it is the GTS Version. And of course, the fron end does sit too high and the interior which is supposed to be cream is waay too light.

    i have a mira 512TR 1:18 and i think it's one of the crappiest models i own.

    it looks to me like they took the old Testarossa stock off the warehouse shelves and just banged together some 512TRs out of them.

    in fact, i dislike it so much i can't find it! it's not on my shelves here in my office - i guess i must have put it in the basement or something at some point!

    but if you MUST HAVE a 512TR (like me), then your options are slim.

    doody.
