Matchbox Superfast No. 11/75 Chrysler Atlanti

Matchbox issues this Chrysler concept car in 5 versions beginning in 1996. Shown here is the 4th version issued in 1998.
 
The First issue in 1996 was a promotional model in Metalflake Champagne with black plastic base, clear windows and tan interior. This one had special wheels with Goodyear on the tires and a chrome hub.  On the side was a label saying April 12, 1996, Matchbox and ‘www.marchboxtoys.com’. It was made in Thailand.
