Since I know many of you would be interested in taking a closer look to the “Coches Míticos” made by Scalextric Spain for Altaya, I have decided to extend my last entry with two more entries, although these were made in 2001 and are (theoretically) out of the scope of this blog.
All cars were made by Tecnitoys. The promotional leafleft indicates that Tecnitoys used the original casts from Exin, although many collectors argue that the casts are new, since they have found small differences in most models.
The models are Made in China instead of Made in Spain, and all of the, have the word "Scalextric" in the windshield (the originals hadn't).
Here are the first 6:
