I like the Volvo V60 a lot. It is a pleasure to see that it will come without the roof luggage as it was announced previously. Therefore it will have a metal roof, hopefully.

Have to agree with you Brad. Modern looking wheels on a modern looking car, much better. I also like that they're the gun-metal colour wheels.

I know a lot will go crazy over this one, but for me the red interior is wrong and the graphics are just plain uninspiring.

I'd really rather have front and rear painted detail like lights and number plate.

Typical a decent model ruined by some numb nut who decides red is nice.Worth buying just for a donor vehicle for a makeover.I think it would be far better to hand this casting over to Hot Wheels as they would do far more with it plus the market for modern issues is very buoyant here in the UK with some good sellers offering plenty.

What we really need is Majorette to start making some of these older type vehicles and please not that old Model T junk that MOY fleeced us all with for years.

This'll be the first release of this casting that I won't be getting. It does nothing for me unfortunately

If the dodge comes out like that as a single blah.But in the right 5 pack or with a couple of other vehicles in the regular line-up themed to match it could still be a winner.

This model appears to be a support vehicle for the MB Quick Sander and HW Fiesta which were Michael Heralda's parting designs when he retired recently. They pay homage to his very first Mattel design which was on a Ford Escort Cosworth(?) Rally Car.
