This model is the Editions Atlas Dinky 1424g-F-1 Renault R12 Gordini in blue with white stripes.

The only opening parts on this model are the front doors. All other detail is cast into the body casting such as the bonnet, boot, rear doors, handles, badges, and rear lights. The car is adorned at the front with a silver painted lights, white on black number plate [2302 K 93] and the grille is a black plastic molding that is part of the base. At the rear it has red tail lights and a white on black number plate [2302 K 93] that is also part of the base.

The interior is black plastic with a black left hand drive steering wheel set into the dashboard, and the glazing is clear with rear view mirror and wipers cast into it.

All wheels appear to be one piece, solid, spun hubs with a separate black rubber tyre on steel domed axles. The model has working suspension.

The base plate appears to be black plastic and carries the legend "Renault 12 Gordini" at the top centre, "1424G" to the front middle centre, "Une Production" to the rear top middle centre, "Editions Atlas © Mattel, Made in China" on two lines to the rear bottom middle centre, and "Dinky Toys" to the bottom centre. To the rear of the rear axle is the scale "1/43" and "5-71". The base also carries rudimentary representations of the exhaust and lower engine components. It is held in place by one small self tapping screw to the front and a body locating lug to the rear.

Exact issue date is unknown but thought to be circa 2015/2016.
