PHOTO GALLERY: AUTOart Mercedes-Benz 190 SL

I always admired the classy looks of the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL from far. I don’t really collect many classics, but on a recent episode of “Speed is the New Black”, the team faithfully restored one to nearly original form. Right there and then I needed to have one in my collection!  AUTOart was the primary choice of manufacturer, the hunt was on… I finally acquired one at a decent price, however, I thought I purchased the model with the full Black side walls, but when I removed the piece from the box the White walls were there. I have to admit, I do prefer the “hotrod-ish” feel of the all Black but this one still impresses large. She’s full opening, all metal, and beautifully detailed inside and out. This is what collecting in scale is all about folks! Enjoy the pics!

    Especially interesting after seeing Norev’s version lower down the page. Such a big difference.
    Altho, some of Norev’s mercs are more than acceptable, like 80’s SL, especially american version looks yummy. The one which was driven by Davon Myles in Knight Rider, hehe.

    Yes, I think DS needs more of these classic. Absolutely stunning.
    Honestly, I’d just wish AUTOart go back and keep making quality models like these. I’ll have to pay the high price anyway, so why hesitate?
    When the time is right, I’ll add the Honda S800 to my collection.
