The Mercedes 300SL is probably one of the most beautiful Mercedes-Benz of all time. The Gullwing Coupe has always been a part of exquisite classic car collections, not to mention its relative rarity with only over 3,000 units ever built.
If you’re like us who are fascinated by the W198 Merc, or have one in your garage right now (you’re in luck), then you would be happy to know about the latest collection of accessories from Mercedes, including this weathered 1: 8 models of a 300 SL.
The scale model is just as cool as the classic coupe, we think. As you can see, it’s so detailed, even with a weathered look – much like the perfectly detailed scale models you can buy through the Amalgam Car Collection website.
Unsurprisingly, the Mercedes 300 SL scale model is just as expensive here as the Amalgam collection. The weathered 1: 8 model has a sticker price of 19,900 euros, or about $ 24,000 at current exchange rates.
If that’s too much, there are smaller ones in 1:24, 1:38, and 1:43 scales, as well as rear-wheel drive toys that cost just $ 7.90 each or around $ 10. The available models also cover the entire history of the SL up to the R 231.
Besides the scale models, other accessories are also available such as pens, pliers, a leather travel bag and an exclusive pilot’s cap made of fine leather. You can buy a number of other accessories, all for the love of the Mercedes SL.
Meanwhile, Stuttgart is preparing to launch the next generation SL, with a number of prototypes spotted. The lightweight body has also been revealed, so it’s only a matter of time before the automaker officially launches the next model.
