This is part 2 of 4 of my Mercedes F1 Safety Car mini-series. The first installment featured the SL55, but the first Mercedes Safety Car (of the modern F1 era) was the W202-based C36 AMG.

This model was made by the now-defunct UT Models. Although it is quite an old mold, it hides its age well. The main giveaways are the dogleg front door hinges (the rears are sealed) and the water-slide decals on the windows. This car also suffers from the "melting wheel" issue that plagues many UT models of the era. UT also made the regular street versions of the C36. Prices on ebay are all over the place, but they can be had for under $50, which isn't too bad considering these were $30 15 years ago.
