First introduced at the 1951 Frankfurt Auto Show, the 300 reestablished Mercedes-Benz’ reputation after World War II as a builder of high-performance luxury vehicles. It was one of the world’s most exclusive automobiles, more than twice as expensive as the priciest Cadillac of its day. “Transporting everyone from heads of state and entertainers to the Pope himself, the Mercedes- Benz 300S was a truly unparalleled automobile,” writes the Beverly Hills Car Club. Constructed of die-cast metal and high-impact plastic, these machines are not meant for kids. The 1:18 scale 1955 Mercedes 300S features opening doors, full functioning steering, four wheel suspension, detailed chassis and separate exhaust system. Today, only billionaires and celebrities can afford garages filled with cars as special as this. But Stauer can put you behind these wheels for a fraction of a fraction of that price. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
