The Monteverdi Hai was a car released in 1973 with a number 3 on the bonnet. This was one of the first Matchbox toys to have a different mag wheel.
As many Matchbox cars, it has cousins. The first is the common orange. The second is a rare Chinese version. The next is a super rare char green version of the China one.
The last is an Ultra-rare Monte Carlo racer that came with a sticker kit. It was lite spectraflame aluminium. It had a glistening green yellow and red mixed up.
