The ultimate status symbol of the coastal luxury life, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster redefined what a sports car could be. With tube-frame construction, 240 horsepower under the hood and a luxurious, leather-clad cockpit, it became the preferred chariot of the Hollywood elite and the international jet set.
Minichamps' new 1:18-scale diecast replica of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster is one of the finest efforts we've seen from this veteran model company in some time. Detail is exquisite, from engine bay to luggage compartment. Of special note is the car's remarkably detailed cockpit which features flocked carpeting and beautiful chrome trim.
