|Four-wheeled work of art Collectors pay millions for the real thing… but Stauer offers you replicas of the classiest cars ever to rule the road. The Mercedes Benz 300SL was a limited production race car built between ’52 and ’53. It was incredibly successful and scored overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in Bern-Bremgarten, in the sports car race of the Eifelrennen at the N�rburgring, and in Mexico’s Carrera Panamericana. It also managed 2nd and 4th at its first outing, the Mille Miglia in 1952. At the time of its debut it held the record for world’s fastest car places. Mercedes-Benz introduced a Roadster version of the 300SL at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show. It effectively replaced the gull-wing coupe which was retired that year. Mercedes-Benz described it as their�response to the demand in many countries for a particularly fast, comfortable, open sports car. So they outfitted it with touring options like knock-off Rudge wheels and fitted rear luggage. Constructed of die-cast metal and high-impact plastic, these striking machines are not meant for kids. The 1:18 scale replica features the authentic paint color and is set in die-cast metal for ultimate durability and stunning detailing. It comes complete with working steering column and jointed gearshift. Theres even a spare tire in the trunk in case you burn the rubber down to the rim and need to change it. Today, only billionaires and celebrities can afford garages filled with cars as special as this. This car would cost you a ridiculous price at auction. But Stauer can put you behind these wheels for a fraction of a fraction of that price. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
