If you think that expensive models linger longer on the store shelves, you might want to think again. Miniauto rang us this afternoon with the news that the highly anticipated 1:12 Bauer Mercedes-Benz 500K “Spezial” Roadster – tagging at an eye-watering $1,750.00 MSRP – is almost sold out. If you have not yet placed your order for one of these elegant machines, be sure to make your arrangements now. These models are extremely detailed, and are assembled in such a way as to allow an unprecedented amount of dis-assembly by the owner – all the better to see the incredible amount of detailing and working features rendered under each model’s skin.
If you have not seen our review on this upcoming model be sure to pick up a copy of the Spring ’12 issue of Die Cast X Magazine. The car’s on page 46. And yes, it really is special.
