This BRM P25 was raced from 1956 to 1959; it was initially unsuccessful, not winning a race until a long awaited victory at the Dutch Grand Prix in 1959. Colin Chapman having helped to improve the car in 1956. Stirling Moss believed that the BRM engine was superior to the Coventry-Climax unit used in his Cooper, and a P25 was briefly run in 1959 for Moss by the British Racing Partnership.

The Corgi BRM Racing Car was added to the range in 1958 as No.152 coloured lighter or darker green with racing numbers 1,3 or 7. This later version was 152s, released in 1961 with the addition of spring suspension and, 152s was recoloured in jade green, given a driver  and had a Union Jack added to the bonnet with the same racing numbers. It remained in production through to 1965. The later 's' version is priced significantly higher than the older unsprung version.
