Default Do the following body types exist?

Greetings,

In real life, I drive Italian sports cars, so it only seems right I should drive r/c ones as well. So I've been looking at some r/c magazines, but not seeing anything, so perhaps it was never made or out of production, so here I am, asking you guys.

Standard sizes (i.e. not the mini-z style)

Alfa Romeo GTV or GTV-6
Maserati BiTurbo
Maserati Merak
Lancia 037
Lancia Delta Integrale (evo)
Lancia Stratos
Ferrari 308GT4

TVR 2500M (or 1600)

That should cover the things I'm looking for

Cheers!

I don't think any of those exist. In order for body manufacturers to be legit, they have to pay a licensing agreement tot he car they are replicating. Although those would be cool, there needs to be enough demand from RC enthusiasts out there. Because of the royalties and set up charges, only so many different bodies are made. Unfortunately, the aerodynamics that are incorporated in to full size cars are meant to work with that specific car, where rc bodies need to work on most of the different manufacturers. Its a different kind of complement to the car in RC, so that's why bodies like the Status, and Mazda 6 end up working for racing.

Default Sorry-

I meant the *original* Alfa GTV (aka Alfetta), but that's okay, it's a start.

It's funny, I look at the "new" Alfa 156 body (as on the TC3) and it's not very accurate....but I suppose compromises have to be made for bodies to work on r/c scale.

Those tamiya bodies, they fit on non-tamiya cars? (I'm leaning towards a Team Associated TC3)
