Collecting in Miniature: Minichamps’ 1:43 range

Our feature on 1:18 scale model vehicles at the beginning of the month seemed rather popular, so we decided to follow up with another scale model post, albeit this time focusing on something even smaller: 1:43 scale. More specifically, 1:43 scale cars from Minichamps, who arguably have one of the most vast product portfolios and produce some of the most detailed cars in this scale.

Below are some of your 1:1 favorites as usual. If you don’t have a lot of space for 1:18 scale vehicles, these 1:43 models might be a good option, as they pack a lot of detail for the dollar. The holidays are right around the corner. These small cars would make the perfect gift for your favorite petrolhead.

Mercedes-Benz R107 SL Extravaganza

It’s no secret that the Mercedes-Benz R107 SL is riding a popularity wave at the present time. With an almost 20 year production run, there’s a version for pretty much everyone. But which to choose? Today we’ll look at four very different R107s, from a mid-seventies example right up to the final 560SL that appeared on these shores. We’ll start with this low mileage 560SL for sale in Florida.

1997 Mercedes-Benz SL500 40th Anniversary

While values rise on the R107 Mercedes-Benz SLs, their successor, the R129, has stayed rather stagnant in the market. This isn’t all too surprising, as it is still riding borderline classic status. But as the years press on and the styling cues continue to evolve, the R129 will certainly establish its place as a desirable classic. This 1997 SL500 is one of the rare 40th Anniversary Editions, which featured six spoke Evo II alloy wheels, Crimson Metallic exterior over parchment leather and chestnut wood trim. With just under 40,000 miles on the clock, this is a good way to stand out from the rest of the R129 crowd.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL

It seems as if the R107 SL is fast becoming the next hot classic from Mercedes-Benz, with values increasing steadily, if not quickly, over the last couple of years. The most preferred models in the US tend to be the late production 560SLs, manufactured from 1986 through 1989, bringing to a close one of the longest production runs in Mercedes-Benz history. This Smoke Silver 1989 560SL is one of the nicest I’ve seen in quite some time, complimenting that impressively presented 300TD we featured earlier today for Wagon Week.
