Also, I have two of the official 2Fast 2Furious cars with me. One is the Supra, and one is the EVO 7 which they used in the movie, but instead of Green, it is Dark red with white wheels.

@All: Any idea if the 1:18 Mercedes SLR McLaren 722 GT is available anywhere? Tried searching EBay, not there. Any leads will be much appreciated.

Exactly nine years ago
Just thought of trying out macro on one of my newer cameras.
And one of my scale-models that I got my hands on was this 2001 Mercedes Benz C-class made by Schuco, specially boxed and branded for the Mercedes-Benz museum, Stuttgart, which I had the good fortune to visit on Fri. 12-Oct-2001, nine years ago almost to the day.
The Mercedes Benz museum back in 2001 was housed in a small 5700 sq.ft. glass and steel building within Daimler AG's main factory.
Back in 2001 the company was called DaimlerChrysler.
The address was Mercedesstraße 137, 70327 Stuttgart- Untertürkheim. It was 400m away from Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion. Today the museum has a building by itself. Back in 2001, the museum displayed around 100 cars.
Admission was free and the cars spanned the history of the automobile. It was near this site that the very first petrol-powered cars were built. Gottlieb Daimler, Karl Benz and Wilhelm Maybach harnessed the internal combustion engine into a practical vehicle for personal transportation.
The museum had a cute café and a small store with a number of items such as die-cast cars that cannot be purchased anywhere else.
Among the things I bought there, besides some Mercedes-Benz books were a small clutch of 1/43rd scale-models.
Well. Here's the 2001 Mercedes C-class. The rupee coin is just to give a sense of scale. The car is just 10.5 cm long, 4 cm wide and 3.3 cm tall
-- in other words smaller than my Nokia N82 cell phone.
In 2001 it cost me 19.94 Euros.
Schuco is a very old, famous, German scale model company -- an established name among scale model collectors worldwide. They used to be a leader in die cast car models back in the 1970s. Then they shut shop and reopened.
