(Not shown in correct # order below)

1992[edit | edit source]

This series did not keep the numbering scheme of the previous sets. Most of the vehicles in Series 4 set were duplicates from other sets but in different colors so they kept the same number they previously had instead of getting new numbers. The notable exception the Lamborghini Diablo which carried #23 which was previously allotted to the Lamborghini Countach the year before whch itself was a duplicate of #2 in Series 1. The erroneous #'s printed on the packaging this release:

#10 Ferrari F40 (Yellow), #19 Corvette T-Top (Blue), #20 Nissan 300ZX(Red (Incorrect color below)), #21 Mercedes-Benz 500SL(Silver), #22 Porsche 935(White), #23 Lamborghini Diablo(Red),

(Not shown in correct # order below)

1993[edit | edit source]

This series ignored that the previous series was numbered incorrectly and continued the numbering scheme as if those numbers were correct. So from series III to this series, 6 #'s were skipped. Numbers 25 through 30 never truly existed.

#31 Jaguar XJ-220, #32 Lamborghini Diablo(Black (not pictured below) (Black Countach below was never part of this series)), #33 Cadillac Allante (Red), #34 Jaguar XJ-6, #35 Corvette (White) #36 BMW 850-I

(Not shown in correct # order below)

1994 - 1995[edit | edit source]

This Series received all new packaging and continued the numbering scheme of the previous series,

#37 Aston Martin DB-7, #38 Camaro Z-28, #39 Corevette Sting Ray III, #40 Dodge Viper, #41 Mazda RX-7, #42 Mustang Mach III
