Daniel you're perfectly right, I never noticed before you pinpointed it but I have both the High Speed and Ixo versions of this very same McRae car.

High Speed nowadays sells for about 4 euros (big price hike in recent times by the way) here in Manila and around 10 euros in Occident, so they're always much cheaper than Ixos. Quality is lower overall but they're indeed a very nice bargain. Among High Speed's rally cars check out their Mitsubishi Lancer and Toyota Corolla too.

Vespa, I agree with you about the livery - the classic Martini decoration would make any car beautiful.
