SUMMARY

From a distance you could be fooled into thinking that this is the real thing! It is actually 3/5th scale and powered by a four-stroke petrol engine with a capacity of 110cc and capable of speeds of over 30mph. Based on a substantial steel frame with an incredibly robust fibreglass body, the manufacturer, Harrington Specialist Vehicles, has taken great care in accurately reflecting the 300SL's beautiful lines.

DESCRIPTION

This 300SL Roadster period style dashboard houses switchgear for front and rear lights, working indicators, a fully functional horn and ignition key (including spare) for electric start and various warning lights. The cast alloy painted steering wheel reflects that of the full sized car. Adjustable pedals are provided to accommodate drivers of various sizes, making it suitable for both young drivers and adults. The interior is lavished with soft, deep red leather on the seat and trim with fitted carpet. Neat touches include stainless steel boot and bonnet handles and leather door pockets. The bonnet opens on twin gas struts to reveal an immaculate engine bay and the carpeted boot contains a full-sized polished alloy spare wheel, battery and fuel tank. This Junior Classic measures 2,620mm x1,040mm x 720mm and weighs 240kg.

This vehicle is meticulously engineered, including fully independent, coil-sprung suspension with adjustable shock absorbers, hydraulic brakes with Brembo calipers, limited-slip differential, stainless-steel brightwork and a 3-speed, semi-automatic gearbox including reverse. We can't think of an excuse not to have one!
