The old gullwing is a dinosaur compared to the types of cars you normally see from me, but since it’s Car Week, I wanted to bring something interesting and different to the party.

This one’s made by Minichamps and it’s in a color I see as raspberry red. Not quite purple enough to be put in Friday’s contest, so today is where it belongs. 300SL’s are generally pictured in silver, but in my opinion this is a far better color, which is why I bought the model in the first place. If you have the SLS AMG in your collection (and I have three), you need at least one of these as well.
