    Well, as you probably are aware, the last edition of the real VW “Última Edición” were made in Mexico (my Country). There were only two colors: light blue and light beige. So the model may look great in orange, but it never existed.

    As far as the new MB 280SL it’ real great! I’m one of the few lucky guys to get one. The photos do not make justice. I have a lot of these “Pagodes” from several manufactures, and believe me, this one by Schuco is the greatest of them all!

      Thanks for the info Luis.

      I bought the Red/Orange. The model is spectacular! Schuco is one company that epitomizes what “diecast” means to me. Seeing the detail and the execution of this model, while providing an affordable price point really reinforced why I started collecting, and what diecast/open models will always be superior (IMO) to resin/closed-body design. If anyone is on the fence with this variant of Beetle, take my word, get one!
