Oxford launched the new 1:76 scale Rover SD1 3500 Vitesse, representing the British car from the 1970s-1980s as a saloon in a bright red livery. For its second release, it comes as a highly visible Metropolitan Police vehicle registered A152 SUW from 1983-4. Decorated in white with yellow and red Police banding along the sides, additional artwork places the Force’s crest on the driver’s and front passenger doors and Police on the front and back of the car.
It has the addition of two blue roof beacons on the roof together with a large yellow circle and HY identification lettering, so as to be seen from the air. The interior has black trim and dark beige seating. The Rover SD1 was a particular favourite with the Police due to its performance and speed.
