Sapor Modelltechnik

A finely detailed, 1:8 scale model of the legendary 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSKL (Super-Sport-Kurz-Leicht) two door racing car. The model, of exacting detail and all-metal construction, has over 3,000 component parts including full engine detailing and dashboard instrumentation. Made in the early 1990s in extremely small editions in their Sapor’s premises in Ingolstadt, Germany, these models usually sold out immediately and are widely accepted as the finest detailed models ever produced.

Length: 22 inches (56 cm)

The Mercedes-Benz SSKL was based on a lightweight – L for Leicht – version of the model SSK, whose short wheelbase made it very light and manoeuvrable. Also known as the ‘SSK, 1931 model’, the SSKL was able to achieve a top speed of up to 235 km/h. The final incarnation of the SSKL was driven in the 1932 Avus Race in Berlin by Manfred von Brauchitsch, who with a modified streamlined body won the race with an average speed of 194.4 km/h.
