Scorning the trends of the post-war age, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL embodies both the unique and the sculptural. Its unorthodox doors and shape stood apart from other cars of the Italian-imitation period. While elegant and full of class, this Mercedes was not above leaving other racers in the dust. In its time, this car won victory upon victory in races both at home and abroad. Unlike many sports cars which tossed out the comfort with the kitchen sink, the 300SL managed to be both fast and luxurious.
Brought to you by Tamiya, this 1/24 scale plastic car kit brings Japanese perfection to life in miniature. With two separate bumpers, builders can create either a US or European version of the 300SL. Aside from that choice of model, hobbyists will find a detailed-interior, posable gull wing doors, metal-plated parts, a variety of decals, and a grille made of entirely of nylon mesh. Place this model car on a pedestal and relocate it to your nearest museum. This classic Mercedes will still turn heads!
