Lady luck was with me this week... Scored two models at very reasonable prices, the first being the AUTOart Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG F1. A decent model from AUTOart's earlier years. This die cast does show it's age, but any Euro car fan who appreciates an AMG badge being added to the collection it was a nice addition.

Funny story about this model, it was brought to my attention from m_power (Dennis). He emailed a Canadian website filled with all sorts of older AUTOart models at incredible prices, $60 or cheaper, yes that is no typo! After scouring the site from head to toe I bought this one. I actually flagged a few more to purchase but shipping costs where $25 per model, ouch! This one worked out to $88 and change shipped, which isn't too bad considering today's asking price on die casts and considering this model a rare find. Enjoy the pics!

P.S - I'll let Dennis reveal the website for anyone who is interested.

Great add, Davide. For the beginners in the hobby, this car is from AAs glory days - $50 pricetag and better quality/details than most other manufacturers at that time.
