But at least in the model car Stuttgart have become bolder: In cooperation with IXO Mercedes-Benz sends a Set or 4 individual 300 SL of the pattern W198 into the race to win the favor of customers in the Christmas season; beautiful Gullwing 1:43 and thus very classic Mercedes-Benz, but painted in colors that might not know even the fingernails of the loved ones at home: yellow, pink, light blue, light green - so the colors of the strictly limited Classic Edition for Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

But the Mercedes-Benz retailers still remain at the Navy? We are convinced!
