Here are the part number's of the 2 colour's it will be available in.They already come up on Mercedes-Benz system and i have ordered myself the W213 in both colour's.

I'm hoping there will be a estate and a exclusive variant later down the track just like how Norev did with the W205 C-class.

Here's a site to "iScale" which is a German off-shot of Kyosho Diecast..

Link here: http://www.iscale.eu/en/

Cheers!
Apparently not, Kyosho make a press release & said they were nothing to do with them.
[/quote]Yeah, I remembered that.. that's why I mentioned "Off-Shot" as they aren't really Kyosho, but originally had association with them...

6x6 on its way soon, I presume. :)
I do wonder what the iScale G-Wagen is though. Would it be the recently facelifted version or an older, more classic variant.

I'm assuming that Mercedes has requested the facelifted version..

Relationship between iScale -> Kyosho Deutschland -> Kyosho Corporation:

HISTORY
The origin of the iScale GmbH leads back to the well-known Kyosho Deutschland GmbH, which was founded in 1999; the routes actually go back to the year 1985, when the company was established by the present CEO and owner Bernd Moebus. Until the year 2000 the main focus was on RC-models only. During this period such brands as Kyosho, Hitec, Hype, Team Orion or Hobbywing were established and successfully distributed within Europe.

From the year 2000 onwards the section of diecast miniature models was added. On behalf of Kyosho Corporation contacts to the German car-industry were established and orders taken. In the year 2012 a branch office in Aachen was established concentrating on diecast miniature models only, and the brand "iScale" was founded. Under this name countless miniature-models were developed and manufactured for the German car industry. As these models have been produced without indication of our brand or logo often and are distributed via the official sales-channels of the car industry only, many collectors may dispose of "iScale" models without knowing.

At this point a distribution via the model-shops is not being considered.

Still don't understand much. So, the Kyosho models we knew (especially D.E. like the BMWs and Audis) were made by Kyosho's German arm (now iScale), but they now decided to go their separate ways.

Kyosho Germany never made anything, they were only distributor for Kyosho RC (and other brands, mentioned above).
But they were the key for Kyosho Corp. to German car industry, took the orders and forwarded them to Japan.
Then Kyosho Germany was bought by Robbe RC but those went bankrupt after that deal.
Bernd Moebus founded his own brand iScale to go on with diecast merchandising.
Though Kyosho Corp. denies any relation to iScale the models are obviously made by the same plant. When you dismantle the iScale R8 workmanship is conspicuously close to Kyosho.

So, Gaincorp Corp in China was making the Kyosho diecasts(or is still is making). So, same people, basically?
they just need to get their QC levels up a bit (as the 2nd gen R8 had some issues). Also speed up production times!
Cheers for the info Rainer

On a related note, while digging around online for more pics of this model I came across a part number for a 1/18 S213 E-Class (T-model) in blue - B66960383. Seems like this one will be in "Exclusive" trim with the traditional grille and hood ornament. Haven't been able to find any pictures though (or any more pictures of the sedan other than the two posted by the OP).
