This is a new Corgi Vanguards McRae DJM R4 Colin McRae Goodwood Festival of Speed 2007 VA12802.
The R4 grabbed headlines on its public debut at the 2006 Goodwood Festival of Speed although at that point it had not been tested. By early 2007 the R4 was road legal, Motor Sports Association certified, and being tested almost to destruction by McRae himself. By that year's Festival it had been painted in McRae's corporate livery, as modelled here, and was used to open the event, with Colin doing doughnuts in front of Goodwood House. That weekend it completed many reliable and impressively fast runs on Goodwood's chalk surface rally special stage and was the undoubted star of the show with spectators loving its awesome grip and superb noise.
The model is 1:43 in scale and comes complete in box.
Corgi create these detailed die-cast models for the adult collector. They are not recommended for young children due to small parts.
