M4 currently manufactures four lines of 1:43 scale, die cast automobiles, all of which are available from William Tell:
Art Model: Hand-made in Italy, just like Ferraris should be!

Best Model: More than 300 sports cars and rally cars bring back the days when men such as Mario Andretti and Steve McQueen raced their Porsches, Jaguars, Lolas, Ferraris and others at Le Mans, Sebring, Daytona, Laguna Seca and other legendary tracks. This line is filled with 1960s-1980s racers that the young and young at heart will always dream about.
M4: As close to a real Alfa Romeo as you can get in North America, this line includes more than 130 sports cars, rally cars… even street cars ranging from the beautiful 1959 Giuletta to the fun-filled 2010 Spyder convertible.
Rio: With more than 220 models ranging from turn-of-the-20th century Grand Prix racers to beautiful 1930s Bugattis and classic 1950s Thunderbirds, this product line will be the favorite of antique and classic car enthusiasts everywhere.
