#623 MATCHBOX – LOTUS EUROPA and BMC 1800 PININFARINA (1969)


Two cars released in 1969. Amazing design for that year! Both came with Superfast wheels. Their most common colours are listed below, but of course, they can be found in other rare combinations, prototypes and international versions.


N°5d Lotus Europa (available 1969-1974)
1969-1970: Blue
1971-1974: Pink



N°56c BMC 1800 Pininfarina (available 1969-1974)
1969-1970: Golden
1971-1973: Orange



UPDATE (JAN/2017): I recently found two Lotus Europa in better condition than the two above, so I insert more pictures here.
