#563 CORGI - RENAULT 5 TS and RENAULT 5 TURBO "CALBERSON" (Nr. 293 and 307) (1977 and 1981)



This is one of my favorite cars of all times, the Renault 5 in its rally version:

  • Scale 1:36
  • Practicable doors and bonnet (rear)
  • Released February 1977, discontinued in 1980
  • License Plate 692









And to make this entry a little more attractive, I include here the same car, but in standard version. It is curious, that this model came out when the previous one was discontinued, so there were not two Renault 5´s in the same catalogue.

Scale 1:36
Practicable doors and trunk (rear)
Released April 1981, discontinued  in 1982
Sold 236,000 times
License Plate 837





 
Both cars are made in 1:36 scale. You can read more about Corgi Toys in this scale at entry #99.

#561 SCALEXTRIC RALLYES DE ESPAÑA 1967-1998 (Part 2)

As I did with “Coches Míticos”, I have decided to extend my last entry with two more entries showing each one of the cars.

All cars were made by Tecnitoys. In this case, some were made using original casts from Exin, other are completely new casts, and other are simply cars made in the late 90s already by Tecnitoys.

The models are Made in China instead of Made in Spain, and all of the, have the word "Scalextric" in the windshield (the originals hadn't).
Here are the first 8:

SEAT 850 COUPÉ – Antonio Pérez Sutil – Rally Gran Premio Oviedo, 1967




LANCIA DELTA INTEGRALE – Jesús Puras – Rally Osona, 1992
 



FIAT ABARTH 1000 TC – Manuel Juncosa – Rally de Orense, 1967
