Corgi hasn't produced any Avengers cars in years, no. Obviously the legendary #40 giftset ceased production in the sixties. There was a Steed's Bentley in the late nineties, and the TNA Steed's Ranger Rover and Gambit's Jaguar after that. The only time I came across one of them somewhere outside ebay or a collector's shop was an FAO Schwarz in San Francisco in 2002, which had stacks of Gambit's XJS, one of which I picked up for a pretty good price--I think they were trying to unload them for new stock even then. So I'm afraid you're well over a decade too late to pick them up "new." Ebay is your best bet--there are always lots of them floating around, still boxed, usually for fairly reasonable prices. Occasionally a comic/collectables shop will have one as well--I got my Bentley that way.

Good luck! Smile

There are corgi figures of Steed, Emma, & Gambit that came with various vehicles. As Corgi didn't release a Purdey car we never got a figure of her. Does anyone know of a suitable 'replacement' that was maybe released as something else?
