A true treat: Norev brings the new model car to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class of the W 140 series in the 1:18 scale, a new version of the sedan, which we already know as S 600. In contrast to the miniature with the replica of the twelve-cylinder under the hood, the French from Vaulx-en-Vaulin deliver a clearly reduced model of the V8 in the block, which reproduces the 235 kW / 320 hp strong propulsion unit solidly solid. The model car is made of zinc die-casting and offers all-opening doors - all four - and a functioning trunk hood. The Mercedes-Benz S 500 from Norev already has the facelift as a model of the 1997 vintage, which has been noticeable since 1993 by the beading in the Sacco boards, new headlights and the continuous luminaire strip at the rear .
Top in style in prototype as well as a model
The best or nothing, so the commercials of the car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz end today, but already in the 1990er years the claim would have been entitled. Not only that the series, which was designated as W 140 in the plant, was one of the solid, low-rust-prone and virtually unbreakable cars of the Stuttgart brand; No, even in terms of technology as well as progress, she had incredibly many features on board. Small sample of what the S-Class of this series could have done or had on board? Gasoline engines e.g. With four-valve technology and adjustable intake camshafts, complete refusal of fluoro-chlorohydrocarbons, from 1995 five-speed automatic with electronic control and double-glazing on the side windows.
A servo lock for trunk covers as well as doors, electrically folding mirrors and headlights with free-form reflectors were also part of the equipment. For the first time on the world markets, the W 140 was made available on the world markets by the luxury class diesel SD, the steering with torque-dependent steering torque was on board, and the electronics took over the world government: electronic networking via CAN bus, the adaptive damping system ADS; The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) was available as from 1995 onwards, such as the electronic parking aid and the APS navigation system. Sidebags for driver and front passenger, brake assist BAS and Xenon headlights with wide-beam regulation were offered in the W 140 from 1996 onwards. Since 1997, the S-Class offered the emergency call system Tele-Aid and the voice control system Linguatronic.
An indispensable treat
The French from the house of Norev have given the model car an original, in many respects well done interior. The Norev model has a look that fits perfectly with that of the legendary model. The fit of the functional parts offers no reason to criticize, the gap dimensions correspond to expectations of a premium product. The interior is flocked with a felt base; The wooden decor elements in the interior are generously distributed and the instrumentation is provided with scales. The folds on the seats are very well hit. The Modellauto, which is color-changing in the showcase, is available under the item number 185579 and for fans of the brand with the star as mentioned at the outset an indispensable treat.
