Mercedes Benz SLK 200 W171   (Minichamps)

Posted Image

externally, this fine, painting, this perfect,the car opens the doors hood and trunk,the roof is folded,and stored in the trunk,The system is similar to the actual car,wheels and tires are very well reproduced,has disc brakes on all 4 wheels

the engine is very detailed you can see all its components,including ABS with her cables

the interior is nice, the floor is carpeted,the seats are plastic, and the belts made by rubber,the dashboard is very well reproduced,a very nice touch is that the central glovebox opens.and inside have a phone

the trunk is carpeted, I really like the metal hinges

now the photos

Wow...what a great reminder of the days when Minichamps actually gave a crap about the 1:18 market and made excellent models for the price. Their 981 Porsche Boxster S is an abject embarrassment next to this model- Minichamps should be ashamed of that effort and proud of this one.  I'd love to have one of these if I could find one at a good price.

Really a nice model! Maybe better than their SL with the folding top.
I didn't know you can find a cellphone in this model. Posted Image
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.

Did you already try ebay or Modelissimo (Germany)?

I'm going to look for one of these, first on ebay, and then at Modelissimo or another European seller if I can buy enough models to justify the shipping charges.  I never realized what a nice model this was.  As I said in my comments a few weeks ago in this thread, this model represents Minichamps at its best in my opinion.
