Lancia Lybra

I bought this model in a toy shop, on a school trip to France.

Lancia Lybra is a compact executive car, produced between 1999 and 2005, (last models were sold in 2006). It is available as a saloon and an estate (called SW). The name is a reference to the zodiac sign of Libra, which in Latin means balancing scale.

The Opel Corsa A (in the UK known as Vauxhall Nova) was first launched in September 1982. It was available as a 3 door hatchback and a 2 door saloon. 5 door hatchback and 4 door saloon arrived in 1984 and in 1990 the whole range was revised (new bumpers, headlights, grille and interior).

MG ZT

First diecast model in my collection bought by me in 2008. Its in "Goodwood Green". The real car was made between 2001 and 2005 and was based on the Rover 75. The bodyshell was almost identical to the Rover, but with more aggressive grille, sportier styling, stiffer suspension and re-tuned engines. The production ended in 2005, as MG Rover went bankrupt.
