This model is the Corgi 222-A-2 Renault Floride in maroon. This version has both the base holes over the axles and suspension.

There are no opening parts on this model. The front lights are represented by mask prayed silver dots, above a mask sprayed silver bumper and number plate. The front badge and rear bumpers, number plate, and grille are also picked out in silver.

All wheels are of the smooth type - solid one piece metal hubs with a separate black "rubber" tyre, fitted to steel axles.

The base plate is grey painted metal and is marked with CORGI TOYS at the centre top on two lines, "Renault, Floride" in the centre middle on two lines, and "222" at the centre bottom.
