This set is showing the evolution/development of the Racing Motor Car:

  1. from the pre World War I  GB (Gordon Bennet) Mercedes (1903)
  2. to the 1920s/30s Bugatti type 35B (1927 – 1931)
  3. and up to the first car produced by BRM (British Racing Motor) in the early 1950s: the  type 15 GP Car (1950 – 1951).

Micromodels London has issued the model with cards and a wrapper, but also as part of their calendar 2017.
