This series was released by Hachette in the early 2000s. The 85 models in the original series were picked from existing Corgi and Solido ranges in the main, a few of the cars were from Norev. Quality across the series is variable, many of the models being de-specified from the mainline Corgi/Solido model ranges. Probably the worst car in the series is the Ford Model A lifted straight from the Days Gone Lledo range.

Its not all gloom though - some of the models are excellent particularly the Mark X Jaguar.

Each car was supplied in a pack with a magazine featuring the car and with related articles. The car was protected by a semi-rigid bubble-pack and a blue & yellow box was supplied flat packed.

There are five extra cars at the bottom of the page, making a total of 90 models, which are clearly part of the series but I cannot find referenced anywhere.
