Mercedes 300SL 1st Le Mans 1952 #21 Lang/Riess by Spark

Mercedes 300SL 1st Le Mans 1952
Alternative version SPK4408 #20 & SPK4409 #22
In original form the 300SL coupe only had the side windows that could hinge to access to the cockpit but for Le Mans modifications were required to create a deeper door to ease access and gave birth to the famous ‘Gullwing’ road cars. The success of these coupes at Le Mans also helped cement their place in history with a reliable ruin to a formation 1-2 finish after Levegh’s solo effort in the Talbot ended in mechanical failure with just over an hour to go. The shape of the cars looks very good on the models, the panel engraving is very crisp and the silver paintwork has a very subtle sheen. An interesting detail, given that most race images are in black and white, is that the interior colours differ and there is the subtle inclusion of a coloured pit i.d. light in the windscreen of each matching the grille surround.

About Spark

The range which changed the 1:43 model market and for which we coined the term 'resincast'. Resin rather than traditional diecast bodies mean that relatively short production runs can be made and what might be marginal subjects become viable. Quality is very consistent with plenty of fine etch used where necessary. A huge range is the result, covering all aspects of (mostly postwar) motorsport and a wide variety of road cars. We typically see around 30 new subjects released per month and pre-orders are strongly recommended. Made in China
