Here is the official press release from GreenLight:

GreenLight Collectibles has the World in the Palm of their Hand

Highly successful 1:64 Motor World introduces its third release and continues to shine the spot light on International Car Models

Indianapolis, IN (July 14, 2010) As motor vehicles become increasingly vital to everyday life, the automotive industry has grown to be one of the most important economic sectors and viable enterprises in existence.  This revenue is one that proves to be essential to the well being of the respective manufacturing countries.  These countries that produce the cars that we internationally adore are the focus of GreenLight Collectible’s highly successful series 1:64 Motor World.

GreenLight’s greatness has hit pandemic proportions as its reaches every corner of the globe.  To continue to move forward with this conquering reputation GreenLight created the third release of 1:64 Motor World representing global manufacturers as well as appealing to international and domestic die cast collectors.  The 1:64 Motor World Series is also the most economical line offered by GreenLight with a MSRP of $2.99.

1:64 Motor World Series 3 is sectioned into three different sub-series- Classics, American, and Speed.  Those cars that are placed into the “Classic” sub-set are distinguished vehicles, well-known for their appearance and performance.  The “America” collection contains manufacturers indigenous to the home of the brave and “Speed” sub-series include those vehicles that could rip the road apart.

1:64th Motor World Series 3 includes the following twelve vehicles:

  • Classics – 1958 Porsche 356A Carrera Speedster – Blue
  • Classics – Mercedes-Benz Sprinter – Red and White (Firestone)
  • Classics – Mini Cooper – Red with Black Stripes and Top
  • Classics – Volkswagen Samba Bus – Yellow with White Top
  • Classics – Volkswagen Samba Bus – Beige with Olive Green Top
  • Classics – Volkswagen Samba Bus – Teal with White Top
  • American – 1955 Chevy Bel-Air – Black with Grey Top and Silver Trim
  • American – 1956 Ford F-100 – Black
  • American – 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C – Blue
  • American – 1999 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am – Black
  • Speed – 2003 Dodge Viper SRT/10 – Yellow
  • Speed – Jaguar E-Type – Midnight Navy

All twelve cars from Series 3 will be available at Toys ‘R’ Us and Gordmans throughout the United States and through GreenLight Hobby Distributors/Wholesalers and Online Dealers around the world beginning in September 2010.

1:64 Motor World die-cast model cars feature 100% authentic metal bodies, plastic chassis, authentic detailed wheels and are officially licensed by the respective automobile companies.  As with GreenLight Collectibles offerings, the “Green Machine” chase car program carries over into the Motor World line with 2% of the production run manufactured in alternate schemes to provide the marketplace with the rare vehicles the collector craves.
