This is the metallic cerise version of this model. 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.

This example is very good, with just one or two small chips here and there. The screens are all excellent and the lemon interior clean. The suspension is excellent and there is an original spare wheel in the boot. The silver oainted areas at the front and back have survived remarkably well with virtually no marks as one would usually find in these vulnerable areas.

These were not around for a long time and seem quite scarce in good condition now. This has been one of the more difficult models for me to pin down (other than many in boxes and as new condition at crazy prices!)
