Whilst the UK the Atlas Dinky collection included a Volkswagen Beetle it was as a replica of 262 Swiss Postal Service. #181 did appear in a light blue with chrome spun hubs in the Atlas Dinky continental collection but not in the UK series. DeAgostini are now selling number 4 in their new Dinky series here in the UK, and yet again #181 appears but this time in the standard cast hubs as it appeared in Italy. My picture below shows the two versions of #181 Volkswagen together.
