Product Description

Product Description

Corgi are proud to introduce the first and only die-cast collection to be inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which we hope becomes a lasting legacy of a monumental moment in sporting history. Whether it is a high end, authentically detailed Limited Edition piece or the start of a multi piece ‘collect them all’ series, there is something here for everyone.

The revolutionary TX1 modeled here was designed, developed and built in 1997. It’s iconic redecessor, the Austin FX3 was produced between 1948 (the year of the last Olympics to be hosted in London) and 1959. The famous ‘black cab’ is universally recognised as a symbol of London. The name taxi derives from the taximeter, the instrument which measures the distance travelled or the time taken, thus allowing an accurate fare to be determined. This device was invented in 1891 by Wilhelm Bruhn.

Box Contains

  • 1 x die cast vehicle

    The cars that I purchased were die cast and appeared to be very durable. They will prove to be an interesting souvenir of the 2012 Olympics. Very popular with two pre-school boys.

    Well made, solid, but little things like the doors opening made this a fun surprise for my 6 yr old daughter. We love having a reminder of our years in London too.

    Bought the range of these Great British classic die cast vehicles as souvenirs so aren't played with- but they look fab. When my 2 year old is older he will look back at photo's of the olympic's and the flame running past our house and appreciate these vehicles drapped with the 2012 olympic logo's, as a memorable occassion. I also got a good deal on the set by shopping around so i paid the equivelent to £5.50 each. I had also bought the mini double decker die cast classic bus which my son loves playing with and is very durable!!
