Mercedes SLR McLaren MSO Edition

Post by nigelchaytor123 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 11:07 am

Am I the only collector that thinks this extra special (only 25 produced) SLR deserves to be produced in a proper 1:18 scale model? With regards to current SLR's available in 1:18 scale, we really only have Maisto or a roadster version from Minichamps (as far as I'm aware). The SLR deserves a proper 1:18 model, and this MSO edition just takes it to another level.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with the MSO Edition SLR, take a look at the link below:

Not too many people know about it and the 1:1 would be hard to get a hold of. Not to mention the demand isn't really there. You could suggest it to a company like GT Spirit. They might be down to do it

GT Spirit was who I had in mind because they already produced the SLR 722 GT model. A few exterior modifications on the same platform and they would have it!

Hit the nail on the head. I did not know about the car until now. I'd hit one in scale! :money: :money:
