    Are there any Lambo Miura replicas with metal bodies?



    Even though I've seen some nice fiberglass kits, I'm looking for a steel- or aluminum-bodied replica of the Miura S or SV. I know asking for a metal body kit is serious cash.

    I don't believe it is going to be an option for you

    Parallel Designs is the only company i know of producing a kit

    Indeed, but there have been numerous examples in the Shelby Cobra field. There are aluminum options for Jaguar and Porsche replicas as well. I know some tuner houses and private body shops have been commissioned to build customized replicas of 1950s race cars like the Rizk Auto's DBR2, Creative Workshop's BLS1 (250 TR), and the Lynx XKSS.

    they also make an aluminum body Ferrari P4, but no Lambo Muira yet that's I've heard tell of, though it would be amazing to see one...

    I haven't heard of a Metal Miura at all. Parallel is the only one doing Miura bodies now that I know of and they have changed up their latest offering from the original.

    There is a thread in the construction section of Pennock's Fiero forum where V8 Archie built a Miura out of a Fiero. Pretty ingenious what he and his team have done to the Fiero to get it to fit. The body was a Prova body that was moulded off an original Miura back when Lamborghini actually backed and approved Prova to do it.

    No idea where you might find a kit from them now besides stumbling upon one in someone's garage or attic. I posted the link to Pennock's thread in General Kitcar chat if you want to read through the posts.

    Cheers

    PanelCraft in Colorado, Craig Naff in Virginia , or perhaps myself at Donnicks.com here in BC, Canada can help you out there at least in part if not whole for a metal bodyshell.
    I would require a fullscale fiberglass bodyshell to make a buck or accurate to scale drawings..
    and this applys for most any vehicle. I charge $50. an hour.
    You can see samples of my metalwork on my website...you may have to type Donnicks.com in the upper address bar to find my site.
