2013 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class scale models now available

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 30, 2012

Collectors of high-grade miniatures of the Mercedes-Benz SL are getting excited about the new addition to the collection -- the roadster. The 1:87, 1:43 and 1:18 scale models are realistically reproduced, even in the original paintwork. The miniatures have the right classic SL proportions and there’s incredible attention to details such as the interior and the air outlets.

The hand-assembled precision models were developed with the use of the original CAD data. It has as many as 104 component parts. The roadster roof comes separately. Mercedes-Benz produced these collectors' models in partnership with manufacturers Herpa and Norev.

These miniature models can be bought from Mercedes-Benz sales and service outlets, Mercedes-Benz dealerships, the Mercedes-Benz Museum, and the online shop (shop.mercedes-benz.com). Mercedes-Benz designer packaging is used in all model cars in the Mercedes-Benz Collection.

So that the collectors could easily remove the 1:18 scale models from the screw-fastened packaging, a screwdriver is enclosed. A glove is also provided for each purchase so that the miniature could be protected from fingerprints.
