The Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is only just on the market, and it is already being copied: as a miniature model and a faithful copy, the innovative coupé with its stretched roofline can now make collectors happy too. From the end of October the model car will be available in 1:18 and 1:43 scale from Mercedes-Benz sales partners and from the online shop at https://shop.mercedes-benz.com.
The Model Car Selection of Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH stands for highest accuracy to detail: the CLS Shooting Brake model was designed in cooperation with Norev, the model car specialist, using original CAD data. The miniatures bear the original paints and are hand-assembled.
There are two scales available: Norev assembled the CLS Shooting Brake on a scale of 1:18 from more than 115 individual parts. The 25.5 centimetre long model is zinc die cast. The doors, bonnet and boot can be opened. The interior and the floor of the boot are flocked and all the interior details are true to the original. The fittings include LED headlamps with Intelligent Light System (ILS) and light alloy wheels in multi-spoke design. The model car is available from the end of October in obsidian black, thulite red and design magno allanite grey for 69.90 euros. A glove and a screwdriver for removing the model from the packaging are also included.
The second miniature is barely twelve centimetres long: the CLS Shooting Brake on a scale of 1:43. This zinc die cast model consists of more than 53 individual parts. One can choose from the original paint colours iridium silver, diamond white metallic BRIGHT and manganite grey SHAPE. Accessory details include LED headlamps with ILS and aluminium wheels in multi-spoke design. This Norev model comes in a presentation show case on a printed base and costs 29.90 euros.
