Not everyone is rich enough to own several cars, let alone a garage to park them. It is even harder to get a classic at a bargain price. Thankfully, there are die-cast models which can let anyone become the Jay Leno of the miniature automobiles.
That’s right. Like the Routemaster Bus, Matchbox is giving the ’61 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupe a reboot.
First released in 1963, this particular miniature Mercedes-Benz rose to fame as the first Matchbox die-cast model to feature opening doors.
Other highlights of this tiny delight include a matte black roof, True Grip GT wheels, light blue-tinted windows, and a red interior.
Just like the real classic, the Matchbox ’61 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE Coupe is a sight to behold. OK. Maybe a miniature sight to behold.
