I finally have my dream car, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. However, it’s in a 1:24 scale diecast model.
I grabbed this collectible item when I stopped by for gas at a Unioil station in Metro Manila, Philippines. I was impressed with the attention to detail that Shantou MZ Model Co., Ltd. have displayed in their product so I thought about sharing it here.
Check out some of the photos I took here:
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster 1:24 scale model is a product under the Golden Cruisers Super Edition licensed diecast models collection of Unioil. It is in commemoration of the company’s 50th anniversary.
Aside from the Mercedes SLS AMG, their collection includes the Hummer H2, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and Bentley Continental Supersports. Their promo runs until mid-December of this year.
As a big fan of the three-pointed star brand, I went for the SLS right away. I got mine when I bought worth Php 1,000 ($20) gasoline for my car and just added Php 350 ($7) for the toy car.
The maker of the SLS 1:24 scale model successfully copied all the design elements present in the exterior and interior of the original car. The proportions, body lines, chrome accents, bumpers, lights, air intakes and badges of the small replica are just in the right places. In addition, the toy car features a functioning door, hood, boot lid, and steering wheel.
Opening up the hood of the scaled-down Mercedes model will even give you a glimpse of the artfully-rendered handcrafted AMG 6.2-liter V8 engine of the SLS Roadster.
