Something doesn't look right with 560SEL:

On the other hand, Cadillac is very tempting. :)

The Merc wagon is totally off!! Neo illness - blown from inside :mrgreen:

The 540 Erdmann is a fantastic car, must be 5 times cheaper than the EMC right?

I think I'll jump for the Caddy.. Too many cool cars modelled! Agreed on the "new Matrix" term, although some models do not look very correct/good, so they still have plenty of room for improvement.

Fiat Regata looks interesting addition to my collection but price most likely will prevent it.

There is a little mistake on this car:

KE43014085 King Juan Carlos of Spain 1974 Maserati Quattroporte Frua, Blue Metallic

Don Juan Carlos was proclaimed King of Spain on 1975 22nd of November. So, maybe he had this car, but if it was in 1974, he only was Prince of Asturias...

Looks like they messed up the Audi 80 again... :evil: Stupidly thick A-pillar, too-long bumpers, proportions are squashed. Waste of development budget.

I think they have no choice on the A pillar. Doing it too scale would be too fragile
The rest reminds me of the 100 for some reason not the 80

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I could imagine the 540k's appealing to a few members on this forum -jean b springs to mind. Not for me though.

That is Gorgeous :shock: Without a doubt this is coming here as well as the cream colored version with the vinyl roof! I love '70s hybrid sedans so 2016 is going to be a nice gap filling time with this, the Monteverdi 375/4 and perhaps more? We really are spoiled for choice with the surge of resin cars :D

Let's not forget the people behind matrix are the same that started Neo. So they had their learning curve too. And still make mistakes like the Citroen CX Nilson and the Bugatti 101. I like what Kess is doing, and they are improving.
