- 2002 Mercedes-Benz E500 Sedan (W211)

- Casting #1332

This week we're back with a couple more Mercedes-Benz cars with the rubber tire treatment. This one is a rather large (probably true 1:64 scale) W211 sedan, an E500 in particular. It features opening doors and a trailer hitch like last weeks CL203. Details are well sorted, has a solid feel due in no small part to the rubber meats, and of course, license plate!

- 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Cabriolet (R230)

- Casting #1055

Next up is MB's R230 Cabriolet, but this time, 2002's top-of-the-line AMG model, the SL55. This of course means the supercharged 5439 cc SOHC V8! No doors open, but also features the trailer hitch. Apparently, in Deutschland the thing to do is haul all things with a Benz! I'd totally round the 'Ring in an SL55 with a caravan camper behind it!

- 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 3.4 Cabriolet (Typ-996)

- Casting #0854

This is one of my favs from the Germany hawl, despite it being a sportier car (I normally go for economobiles and obscure cars). It's a 996, but not the Turbo, not even the Carrera 4 or 4S. It's a run of the mill (for Porsche) RWD Carrera 2 with the 3.4L Boxer-6. Super cool to see in diecast, and the softtop is even removable!

As always, I hope you enjoyed this week, and stay tuned for Week 4!
