The Italian company Metro Sales Promotion was founded in 1989 and is specialized in developing and importing promotional items. In 2002, the company started conceiving partwork series of 1/43rd scale diecast model cars for the publishing houses Fabbri and Hachette. While the first partworks consisted of existing models made by established manufacturers (e.g. police cars by Hongwell Cararama and American cars by Yat Ming), Metro first appeared as a manufacturer of 1/43rd scale diecast model cars of its own with Fabbri's "Alfa Romeo Sport Collection", started in 2005. From 2007 on, various series of 1/43rd scale models for Hachette (Abarth, Lancia, Fiat, Mille Miglia u.a.) as well as cars in 1/43rd scale for Fabbri and the Quattroroute magazine followed. The Chinese-made models are well detailed, quality is similar to the models for partworks made by Ixo and Universal Hobbies. In 2010, the company changed its name, the models were sold under the name of Leo Models from then.
