1972 BMW Turbo X1 E25, 1:43

The BMW Turbo X1 sports car was developed for the 1972 Olympics as a pure technology carrier and as a design item, with which to try out and demonstrate new safety concepts and propulsion technologies.

The breathtaking concept study of the BMW chief designer, at that time, Paul Bracq was simply known as the BMW Turbo. For the first time in Europe, he had used a deformable plastic bumper. The aerodynamic sports car with the extremely flat, sleek bodywork, received as the highlight the characteristic gullwing doors.

The original BMW Turbo X1 was equipped with a 4-cylinder petrol engine from the 02 series. Despite the relatively low cubic capacity of just two litres, thanks to the  turbocharger, with 206 kW and 280 hp it was able to accelerate in about 6.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h.

The BMW Turbo X1 was never mass-produced, although it did provide the foundation stone for the development of the legendary BMW M1. Many of the ideas and design details gained from the vehicle, such as the pop-up headlamps and the two BMW logos on the rear reappeared later on the BMW M1.

Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces a miniature model of this legendary 1972 BMW Turbo X1, to a scale of 1:43 in the PRO R line.

This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.

 

Warning! Not suitable for children under 14 years.

Mercedes-Benz 280 SL, grey, 1:18

The new Mercedes-Benz SL series debuted at the Geneva motor show in March 1963, and the 230 SL is now referred to as the "Pagode" model due to its distinctive hardtop roof. Its successor, the famous 190 SL, was the first SL series that consciously incorporated numerous safety features. It was the first time that an SL model had offered a reinforced passenger cell, crumple zones, radial tyres, disc brakes and also optionally available seat belts. Often hailed as a design icon today, roughly 50,000 models of the "Mercedes-Benz Pagode" were manufactured during various stages of development between 1963 and 1971, now making it a truly sought-after classic car that fetches high prices. The Mercedes-Benz 280 SL from the Schuco Edition 1:18 also boasts a number of interesting features that allow you to feel the fascination of this wonderful vehicle in miniature. For instance the Pagode roof of the model can be removed, the opening bonnet reveals a highly detailed replica engine, the doors and the rear door can be opened and closed and the four wheels come with independent wheel suspension and faithfully recreated spring base. The steering mechanism, which is operated by the steering wheel, and the authentically recreated underbody are a standard feature of this model, just like on all Schuco Edition 1:18 models. And if you take a closer look at the Schuco Pagode in 1:18 scale, you will even discover a replica ignition key hanging in the look!
