French cars are not often represented in miniature compared to those of other nations. Even more of a rarity is those done in French racing blue. The scales range from 1:57 to 1:64 for these examples. The biggest surprise, three of the dozen above are from Hot Wheels, surpassed only by four from Majorette. Vive l’auto mini Francais!
