NEW VIDEO! Minichamps 1:18 Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 – in ABS!

AUTOart 1:18 Mercedes G-Klasse: Klasse Act

Not much has changed on the outside of Mercedes-Benz’ G-class SUV since it debuted in 1979, but the super-rugged machine, first developed as a military vehicle, has had a ton of refinements from within. The first examples, called “G-Wagen” (for “Gelandewagen”, roughly translated as “watch me climb this wall“), were co-manufactured by Daimler-Benz and Steyr-Daimler-Puch, […]

Minichamps “Heyer Tribute Set”  1:43 | $149.50  Watching vintage footage of Hans Heyer bombing around circa 1971 in a four-door, AMG-prepped Mercedes 300SEL is a lot of fun, and realizing that he had a monster 6.8 liter V8 motor under the car’s hood (all the better to suck the headlights out of his track mates) […]
