Two more from the series of The World's Greatest Automakers Collection have been seen. As before these are models from the Matchbox Miniatures series but with much higher levels of paint finish and decoration. As stated before, we feel these are let down by the Superfast wheels.
The cars involved are the 1986 Volvo 760 and the 1995 Ferrari F50. Shop here
