AMT 1:25 Piranha CRV Spy Car from 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Product Description

That futuristic car that appeared the hit TV series Man from U.N.C.L.E was built by Gene Winfield in the AMT Corporation's "Speed & Custom Division" shop in Arizona. Winfield had previously built many of the Ford and Chrysler prototypes of new car designs, cars for TV, and for private customers. He was hired by the AMT model company in 1962 as a customizing consultant, and in 1964 he was asked to open a new AMT shop in Phoenix to build working, full-size versions of cars to be featured as AMT models.

The partnership between AMT and the "Man from U.N.C.L.E." was because of Winfield, who had also been hired to build a car for the U.N.C.L.E. series. The original U.N.C.L.E. car was to be based on a Dodge Charger, but the network had second thoughts about giving them too much free advertising or perhaps cancelling their multi-million dollar advertising campaign. They decided a completely new car needed to be used.

Winfield proposed a limited production car AMT was promoting, the "Piranha." NBC liked the idea, plus they loved the fact that the car could be provided at no cost because AMT would pay for its construction in exchange for the rights to produce and sell the model kit of the car.

After more than forty years of not being available, the Piranha CRV Super Spy Car is back in action! The Kats at AMT have retooled the window and taillight parts to resurrect this super detailed model and to celebrate it’s return, it’s being released it in the Original Art Series. The feature packed kit will include a bonus booklet with vintage photos of the 1:1 car, optional tinted windows, a newly developed decal sheet and much MUCH more!
