A nice P-911 : Note the large rear wheels, lacking chrome or a red stripe.
Super Circuito Diabolico Box
The set appears to be a version of the Thundershift 500 set. Dated, 1978, it also appears to be the last Hot Wheels item ever produced by CIPSA.
The history of the set and the cars was largely unknown, even to the CIPSA community until 2009 or so.
