253 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Coupé

40 GBP

This is a nice model in this shade of blue. I often wonder why, though, it appeared in the first place. Corgi had an excellent #230 which had their super steering mechanism and that car was titled Mercedes 220 SE Coupe as well.

This variant has an extra side pillar and a straighter edge boot but no steering. Very odd. You would think that they would have created a new, more interesting 220SE version or even looked at another Mercedes. The open top SL would have been popular.

I can only imagine that the steering was an expensive process in the factory so it was dropped.
