This is outside the normal range of models that I deal with, being a 1990s China edition, but it is one of a few very faithful reproductions made by Corgi using the original design that I feel are worth collecting with the original 261 and 270 models.

This is very similar indeed to the  second 270 model, the one with tyre slashers and gold bumpers. It has all the features of a 270 in fine working order and comes in an original window box of the 1970s style too. The obvious difference, other than base text, is the 'filled-in' type of wheel.

In the box are an instruction envelope (although I am not sure whether it should have an instruction sheet inside, these being shown on the box now),  a spare baddie and limited edition certificate. 29,000 were produced, apparently.

This example is effectively as new, having only been taken out of the box for the photos. I have two available.
