Our favorite luxury car manufacturer is completing 125 years. On this joyous occassion, they have picked out six of the most iconic designs over more than a century and are creating limited edition replicas of the same.
Replicas will include the the 1886 Benz Patent Motor Car, the 1902 Mercedes Simplex 40 hp, the 1936 500 K Special Roadster, the 1955 300 SL Gullwing Coupe, a 1972 S-Class, and the new 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS.
The cars will be 1:43 in scale and accurate to the last detail. Only 1250 pieces will be ever created and the low price ($72) means that they should be sold out immediately.
As part of the 125th celebration, Mercedes will also be selling various forms of apparel, key rings, and an exclusive Ritzenhoff design mug. Each of the products have a black, white, and silver color scheme, and sport outlines of the Patent Motor Car, the 300 SL, and the 2011 CLS.
