Corgi Model Club 224 - Bentley Continental Sports Saloon



Corgi Model Club 224 - Bentley Continental Sports Saloon

The Corgi Model Club represents a carefully curated cross-section of some of the greatest die-cast models ever to come originally  out of Corgi's famous Swansea factory.

Released in 1961, originally in two variations; either black/silver or two-tone green, this lavishly featured model was given jewelled lights, an opening boot (with a spare wheel), 'Glidamatic' suspension and innovative fingertip 'self-centering' steering. The look was completed by silver plated bumpers and a radiator capped with Bentley's iconic 'Flying B' mascot - simplified somewhat due to the model's 1:50 scale.

This extensive tooling was rumoured to have have been too expensive for the Corgi factory to maintain, hence its deletion in 1965 despite sales of over 960,000.

In typically idiosyncratic Corgi fashion, the box depicted an all-green Bentley - a colour in which the model was never available.

Now brought exclusively and directly to you, thanks to Corgi Model Club's unique relationship with Corgi's owner – the illustrious British toymaker, Hornby Hobbies plc, each model includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
