Another Italian design exercise and what a pretty one. You can find pictures of the original on the Internet and it was gorgeous, it was displayed at the 1968 Turin Salon. This is a nice little model, but it doesn't inspire. The Whizzwheels spoil the look of the profile; although the gold spoiler is a bit camp and fun, as are the orange seats - overall it is a little dull - I want a working feature! I demand one!

Corgi made their model from 1971 to 1974. It is usually white and gold with no listed variations in Ramsay. The Great Book of Corgi mentions a blue and white version which I've not seen anywhere, however no references mention the car in yellow with a black spoiler which I have seen - and I have to say it works a lot better than the white version. I've also seen it with red spot Whizzwheels which I really don't think are original, they are quite easy to swap.
