Mercedes launched the W205 C-Class in December 2013 with production starting in early 2014 and the Coupe version followed in 2015. The AMG version of the the saloon the C63 AMG was also launched in 2015 and came in two versions the normal with 469hp and the S with 503hp both using the 4 litre turbo engine from the AMG GT.
The C63S can complete the 0-60 sprint in 4.0 seconds and has a top speed of 180mph as it has a raised speed limiter. To transmit the power the car uses a seven speed automatic transmission sending it via the rear wheels plus it has three stage adaptive dampers and speed-sensitive variable steering. To stop the car it has 390mm discs up front and 360 mm discs at the back

Mercedes Benz World at Brooklands have a few of these AMGs which can be seen blatting around their test track and water soaked skid pan. Very entertaining. Nice model Andy.

Damn you for posting this Andy, as I love this car and resisted buying it because I was not happy with how the front lights looked as I thought they looked too stickery-ish (and still kinda think that way...) but must say that looks awesome and love it in white. White and black is an excellent colour scheme.

Sorry Alistair
I get your point but they are actually painted and 3D inside with lenses. I suppose it is the limitation of scaling them down

I like that Merc in that colour a lot. I seen yesterday a Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series in white. It was awesome and the massive wheelarches give it some series road presence. I was really tempted to follow it until it stopped just so I could have a closer look. With any luck the driver is local and I might get a chance to see it up close and personal.

Most cars of this size don't wear white too well but this is an exception as it doesn't look like a wedding car. Might be those arches

The Renault 12 was introduced in 1969 and was manufactured by Renault in France until 1980 but continued in production under licence until 2006 selling 2.5 million units before production ceased. It was designed to fit into the gaps in the Renault range between the 8 and the 16 and it's design criteria were economy, not very sophisticated, roomy, large boot, a small engine, simple to make, reliable and easy to make multiple variants.
The estate version the Break appeared in 1970 along with a Gordini version and in October 1972 the more upmarket R12 TS was introduced which is the version Otto have modelled. It used same 1289 cc engine as other R12s but was equipped with a single double barrel Weber carburettor which increased power to 63hp (from 60) and raised top speed to 93 mph. It was distinguishable from other R12s by its special Gordini-style wheels and a chrome strip along the side of the car.

A couple of pages late, but the orange BMW 3.0 is a real beauty. Also a fan of the Renault. An ugly car really but so easy to like. Many of the seventies cars have that trait it seems.

I must admit that I don't spend as much time in the 1:18 section if the Forum, but this is an absolute beauty. I like the 1:1 and this model looks better than most full size ones you see around today!

Fantastic.

Another radical design for it's time and very tempting and cheap in 1:1. Don't recall this lurid colour from those days. 1:1 certainly paid for it's development and tooling costs long ago with such a long production run, albeit in different countries. Otto always do a good job.

Thanks Johan. The BMW is very nice model from Otto and worth another mention.
Agreed on the Renault. I was trying to explain to Dee that's it's so ugly it's come out the other side and is very stylish indeed. She's not convinced
JSB33 wrote:A green thing of beauty to me.
That it is. It's funny how this colour is both yellow and green depending on who's looking at it and what light it's under

Understandable Martin, it's not your scale. It is a fantastic model that has captured the car to a tee. You see them around still? Haven't seen one in donkeys. Imagine our damp climate killed most of them

It would be unlike Otto not to use a prototypical colour. Possibly a French market colour or maybe us Brits just went for more subdued shades. I do recall these about mainly the saloon but haven't seen one in a long time

There is a 12 saloon in the same yellow running around here, I've seen it a couple of times. It might be a colour limited to the TS. The only station wagon I've seen in the last decade is a recent import from Spain. Think I've posted it in the Car sightings thread.

A rare sight indeed Tom. Good to know it's a factory colour
I wouldn't mind one of these in the garage

Last model of the year although I do have a couple more that will appear in 2017

The 1976 DRM season got under way at the first race of the season, the ADAC Eifelrennen at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, but the rule changes for 1976 relating to tyre width and car weights meant that the big players of the previous years the Capri and CSL were no longer competitive. Porsche's new car the 934 was dominant and even though it was a real handful on narrow tyres it meant that Division 1 was Porsches for the taking before a wheel had been turned in anger. Ten 934s and six 911 RSRs entered the race in the top division with a solitary Capri, CSL and a Commodore.
Such was the dominance of the 934 that it set set pole time, courtesy of Helmut Kelleners, set fastest lap courtesy of Helmut Kelleners, led all 8 laps (Kelleners only led for 5 of the 8) and took the win, courtesy of you know who plus a 934 also finished in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th
