Conclusion

This is a very fine model. One for the Mercedes devotee for sure, but any collector of sports cars should have this in their collection. The working hard-top and the leather interior just cannot be missed.

Summary and Scoring

  Exterior
Excellent paint. Panel gaps and non-perforated vents let it down somewhat. All would agree that the working hard-top is a work of art and easily overshadows the slight shortcomings.
  9.5  
  Wheels and Tires
Not the best around. Good wheels but bad brakes. Undercarriage quite detailed for a modern road car.
  7.5  
 

Interior
Very nice leather seats. Superb details and well finished.

  9.5  
 

Engine
Like the undercarriage, it is surprisingly detailed for a modern road car.

  8.5  
  Score
(weighted average with emphasis placed on exterior and interior)
  9.0
