Corgi 2013 - Cars

The largest single group of new items from Corgi for next year is this selection of cars which they have announced for the first half year.  With modern F1 cars such as Kimi's Lotus, classic rally cars like the Audi Quattro of Hannu Mikkola, Police cars from an Astra to a TR4, customised cars such as Churchill's Land Rover, to the equally classic James Bond Aston Martin DB5, this time associated with the new movie, 'Skyfall'.

At the same time, more recognisable road cars from the Peugoets, a Vauxhall Cavalier, Escorts in Mk 2 and 3 form, Fiestas and even an old A40.  One more motor sport car features one of my all time favourite rally drivers, one from Colin McRae as he appeared in it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed back in 2007.  I would guess there is pretty much something for everyone in this interesting batch of new models that Corgi have planned for us in the new year.
