Edition 1:18

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!

Porsche 356 A Carrera Coupé "Edition 70 Jahre Porsche", blue metallic, 1:18

Porsche 356 A Carrera Speedster "Edition 70 Jahre Porsche", red black, 1:18

Porsche 356A Speedster #77 "Bruce Jennings", 1:18

To mark "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars", Schuco presents an Edition 1:18 version of the Porsche 356 A Carrera Speedster, limited to just 777 copies worldwide. More than 76,000 examples of the classic Porsche 356 sports car were produced between 1948 and 1965. The Porsche 356 was offered to its enthusiastic customers as a Coupé, cabriolet and hardtop coupé as well as a more nimble and lighter Speedster version. The top model of the Porsche 356 A series was without doubt the Carrera. Powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the Carrera produced 100bhp, allowing the extremely lightweight Speedster to reach a fantastic top speed of over 125 mph, which was quite a remarkable feat at that time. Under the motto "win on Sunday - sell on Monday", the Porsche 356 Speedster, in the hands of a number of private American drivers, won many of the then very popular club races held in the USA. The best known and without doubt most successful "privateer" Porsche racer in the United States was Bruce Jennings, who became known as "King Carrera". Jennings’ racing career spread over 35 years reflected more than 200 wins in various racing cars. His most famous privately owned car, a Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster with the start number "77", is now presented by Schuco as a wonderful collectible limited to just 1000 copies worldwide. Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the Porsche 356 A Speedster comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet under which the highly detailed replica of the "Fuhrmann engine" is accommodated. The limited special edition "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars" additionally comes with the hardtop which was newly developed and specially designed for the Speedster at that time.

Porsche 550 A Spyder "Edition 70 Jahre Porsche", white 1:18

To mark "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars", Schuco presents an Edition 1:18 version of the Porsche 550 Spyder, limited to just 777 copies worldwide. Based on the technical principles of the Porsche 356, the specialists in Porsche’s Racing department developed the 550 Spyder between 1952 and 1953, which was originally designed exclusively as a racing car. The type designation "550" actually refers to the vehicle’s kerb weight of 550 kilograms, which is incredibly low by modern-day standards. Wrapped in lightweight aluminium body panels, the sports car was powered by a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, air-cooled engine. The overall victory of Italian racing star Umberto Maglioli at the world famous Targa Florio in Sicily in 1956 represented the first big sporting achievement of the still relatively young Porsche brand and helped to cement its image as a lightweight, reliable and highly-efficient sports car. Not least due to the huge demand from many sports drivers and well-heeled Porsche enthusiasts in the USA, the 550 Spyder was soon approved for road use and could be purchased from Porsche dealers for 24,600 German marks. Today, examples in good condition fetch up to 4 million euros. Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the Porsche 550 A Spyder comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet under which the highly detailed replica of the "Fuhrmann engine" is accommodated.

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet, white, 1:18

Unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September 1963 as the Porsche 901, this car was the long awaited successor of the Porsche 356, the German brand’s first series production sports car. However, French carmaker Peugeot claimed a patent on all three-digit car names with a zero in the middle and objected to the designation "901". This led to a swift change of number and the fabled "911" was born. Now available in various body styles, including a coupé, targa or cabriolet, the "911" meets almost every demand. Furthermore, various levels of engine power are available and can be combined with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive powertrains. These combinations provide a range of vehicles, from normal road to racing car variants, which meet the challenges of everyday life. The Porsche 911 is also still highly successful in various racing series due to a number of exclusive racing variants. This further underlines its global reputation as the greatest sports car of all time. The Schuco model range boasts various series of the Porsche 911 in varying scales. From Piccolo model to high-end 1:18 models with several hundred parts, from the original variant to the latest 991 series; this vehicle also lives up to its legendary status in the Schuco model range that offers a wide choice of variants. The model of the Porsche 911 (991) Carrera GTS cabrio from SCHUCO in 1:18 scale looks just like its big brother. It is characterised by its realistic attention to detail, fully functional steering and opening and closing doors. Moreover, the bonnet and boot can be opened to reveal the highly-detailed replica engine.
