Rod Ward, owner of the model car shop Modelauto in Leeds (England) and publisher of the magazine "Model Auto Review" (established in 1982), introduced a series of 1/43rd scale handbuilt models under the name of Rapide in 1991. Rod had already started producing reissues of handbuilt models by other manufacturers as well as some newly-developed white metal models in 1983 under the name of Sun Motor Company. In parallel with Rapide, the Bugattiana (Bugatti models) and Bijou (unusual cars and transkits) series were later also added to the range. The Rapide range originally featured various classic cars, including some re-editions of models made by French modeler GĂ©rard Dahinden for his Belle Epoque and Epokit series. A new series of comparatively inexpensive resin and white metal models was released in 2006. The range was very diversified and included, among others, Reliant, Bond and Piaggio three-wheelers, Morris and BSA cars from the 1930s and British ambulances, fire engines and police cars, mostly in 1/43rd scale. Some of the later models were also originally made by other manufacturers, e.g. S.A.M.S and Scottoy. Production ceased around 2012.
