No. It's listed as discontinued. I'll give them a call this afternoon maybe I will get lucky. Out of all the wheels I like these the best, they look great painted flat black.

Yeah I already looked at those. One site the listing has ended and the other two only have a pair each. Thanks for the link anyways. I have my eye on another style.

Just in case, here's one on Ebay. The seller is in Japan. I've purchased items from him and he usually has quick shipping.

Really cool Beetle - where can you buy that body?

Looks like it could use some more offset on the wheels though - then it would be REALLY cool.

Also a very nice and simple paintjob.

Cheers,
Peter

It seems that alpine and datsun 280zx bodies are discontinued. S800 is still around. I thank Tamiya for bringing back the older M chassis bodies.

Out of all the Datsun bodies I like the 510 the best. I just wish Tamiya would step up and make one.

Here's a view of the rear.

Peter : Yah intending to do it when i get my hands on the chrome rims for the limited edition M05 first then it will look more cool.

It's from Team ABR and got it from a local Hobby Shop in Singapore. No sure whether it's sold anywhere online. They have the VW Siroco and a lot other shells too.
