Article by Christian Andrei, on March 17, 2011

Mercedes-Benz has just recently introduced the latest SLK and given the C-Class a facelift yet the model cars for the dynamic saloon, sporty roadster and striking estate have already been made available. All miniatures have been produced in particular for Mercedes-Benz Accessories with ideal workmanship, making them a pleasure to behold. No matter what the size of the vehicle is, Mercedes-Benz always manages to create a sense of fascination in the original and model form alike.

In fact, the Mercedes-Benz Model Car Selection models have a very special spot among real-scale miniatures. This is true because the Sindelfingen Design Studios and Product Management Division of Mercedes-Benz always pays close attention to details, making sure that these miniatures are made with accurate proportions and smooth light-catching contours, among others. The models are built as close as possible to the original.

They can only make it to the Mercedes-Benz Model Car Selection when details like the windscreen wipers, door handles and exterior mirrors go through inspection. The models of the latest SLK have been designed to meet the same strict standards. They are now readily available in different scales of 1:87 for model railway layouts, 1:43 for collectors and 1:18, a large-scale edition for model enthusiasts who have an eye for detail.

In addition, there are different choices of original paint finishes as well as interior appointments. When it comes to smaller models, each comes with a roadster roof, which can be fitted as well.

The roof of the 1:18-scale variant is folded down and kept in the luggage compartment. Well-known manufacturers produced the new SLK model cars in consultation with Mercedes-Benz. Herpa, a HO-scale specialist, made the 1:87-scale model, which comes with a price tag of 15.90 euros.

Minichamps made the highly detailed 1:18-scale version, which has a price tag of 69.90 euros. This specific model is suitable as a display on any desk or bookshelf, making sure that the exciting new SLK, is not too far from sight.

One more addition to the miniatures in the Mercedes-Benz Model Car Selection is the C-Class, which has gone through a facelift. It consists of two variants, the saloon and estate, which come in a range of paint finishes as well as different appointment details. They are available in a 1:43 scale, with each edition costing 29.90 euros.
