This model is the CIJ #3/2 Renault Etoile Filante Gas Turbine Land Speed Record Car (1957) in blue.

This model has no opening parts. The model is done in Etoile Filante racing livery with racing driver.

All wheels have silver cast hubs with black rubber tyres.

The base plate is blue metal and is marked with "Etoile Filante" at the centre top, the CIJ logo in the middle and "Made in France" at the centre bottom. It is held in place with two machined rivets.

This model is considered to be very scarce. I do not know when it was released.
