Lamley Daily: Matchbox Superfast Range Rover Sport

#lamleydaily – March 16th, 2018


Model: Matchbox Range Rover Sport

Line: 2006 Superfast

Where to get it: It pops up occasionally on ebay

Why it’s in the collection: I don’t have all the Matchbox Range Rover Sports, but I have most.  This is one of my favorites of the bunch, mainly because of the color.  It gets full tampo treatment because it is Superfast, Matchbox’s premium line at the time, and sits on what were only Superfast wheels during that time as well.

Considering this is an RR Sport, lower profile tires would have worked better, but I like this utility look for the model.  It looks more RR off-road than RR Sport.  This casting was never spot on, but there are some nice releases.  This is up there.

  1. I’m quite partial to the release of a couple years ago that was black with tan interior and chrome-lipped black rims. This one is quite nice too. I’d love to see MBX do the current-generation Range Rover Sport, or even the Velar.

  2. “This casting was never spot on….”

    That’s putting it mildly. I don’t think there’s a single angle on it that’s right. The colors and printing were always excellent, though.
