Oh that's nice, I think these classic cars are a great direction for them to go.

Always have loved the gullwing  SL , just wish this particular example did not have the racing digits on the doors & hood

Hopefully it gets done in either black, red or silver soon
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

You think it will be released in different colors?  I agree with you - would prefer without the numbers...

My perspective is from years past that the initial investment from Geobra in regards to product research, design, mold creation and now licensing fees were such an expense that having a one off set was rather rare. I also gain hope from the VW line of so many color options .

It’s wishful thinking as this is such an iconic classic MBZ

I'm also hoping it comes out in a plain colour - fingers crossed.

With the various Porsches that have been released - are they different models or re-colours?

I think that gives hope - the 2 VWs have come in different colours, and if some of the Porsches did then I think it's likely that this one will get an updated version next year.
