Jaguar
Steed's Special Leyland Jaguar
1977
size: 13,7 cm
Manufacturer: Meccano Ltd., Liverpool

Unlike the original Jaguar from the series, this car had a blue (?) metallic color and golden stripes at its sides. A figure of Steed sat at the wheel.
Steed's car was advertised in the Dinky catalogs (as seen above) but not officially issued.

According to several sites, this is an unreleased production item, because of factory closure, before it was officially released. I read another version on the website of the Jaguar Model Club saying that a fire in the factory destroyed the molds from which the Jaguar should have been produced. According to the same site, some prototypes, however, were sold by former employees of Meccano (manufactured the Dinky models).
Dave Rogers confirms similar information in his book The Avengers ANew: "several prototype models were illegal 'spirited-out' of the factory" (p.110). According to him the color of Steed Jaguar was 'medium green, greenish blue'.
