Corgi Toys Rockets. Mercedes 280 SL and Alfa Romeo P33.
I don't know much about these, it's almost like they were trying to copy Hotwheels Spectraflames. But I got them for 50p each so a real bargain!

  • I did a little quick research on these. They first appeared in 1969 to compete against Hot Wheels. The axles and nylon chassis could be removed using a special key tool and β€œtuned up” and lubricated to keep the cars going fast down the track. Apparently they later lost a court case that Mattel filed over copyright issues with Corgi’s track system. No track = no need for fast cars so they were discontinued making them highly collectible today. Nice score!!!
