203 Ghia Mangusta 5000 De Tomaso

50 GBP
The Whizzwheels edition of the Ghia Mangusta 5000 is a good-looking model but has none of the interest value of its predecessor.  There is no detachable chassis but there is some semblance of suspension which was, strangely, absent on the 271 model.

It looks quite good in dark metallic green with the gold stripe. As is so often the case, the roof aerial has broken but otherwise this is a fine example of a hard to find model which was not around for very long and not exactly one of their most popular models, withdrawn not long after issue.
