- this model was released in Hong Kong in July 2001 and a quantity became
available in the UK in February 2003. The casting has been modified by
Corgi to accurately represent the narrow front entrance featured on the
prototype - a very nice casting indeed.
- Kowloon Motor Bus ordered a total of eighty-eight 9.7 metre MCW Metrobuses
between 1983 and 1988. M80 was delivered in November 1985. The final eight,
M81-M88, were delivered in November 1989, and were fitted with the more
powerful Cummins L10 engine, producing 280bhp, enabling them to be used
on Route 51, KMB's most difficult route.
