Corgi features track cycling on London 2012 merchandise

Corgi has unveiled the next set of models in its licensed collection of London 2012 merchandise with the launch of Destination London 2012, a range of 40 London 1:64 taxis.

The models contain official London 2012 livery and branding and each model also carries a pictogram of a particular sport appearing in the Games along with facts about the featured sport. Track Cycling is just one sport featured.

The taxi range will be expanded with four new models released every three months, until the start of the Olympic Games in July 2012.

Also planned for the line-up is a 1:76 London 2012 Site Tour Bus, based on the vehicle that takes Olympic Committee officials around developments of the site. The Bus is released this month.

The new products follow on from the Olympic Handover Bus that was released in October 2009.
