Having an affection for toys be they old or new, I was intrigued to find PLAYMOBIL has ventured into the world of classic cars. They have introduced a new edition of a real classic sports car: The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 and it is a real collector’s item for all car lovers.
The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was the first road sports car in the world with a front and rear spoiler from 1972 and cuts a great figure as a PLAYMOBIL model too. Just like its prototype, this eye-catching automobile is sporting a legendary bright yellow coat of paint. Their version carries the traditional body shape as well as aerodynamic details, such as the real spoiler known as the “ducktail”, which will excite all die-hard sports car fans.
This classic car is given a special elegance by the rear-view mirrors and headlight rings in a noble chrome look, along with the curved Carrera lettering on the side giving the classic cara elegance.
The roof can be removed to insert the figures in the car interior and the engine hood at the rear opens to reveal the 6-cylinder boxer engine. No matter whether a sporty road trip or a winding country road: With the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from PLAYMOBIL, every drive is an experience. Get in, take off and enjoy.
The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 is the fastest German production car of its time.
Its rear spoiler was popularly called “Duck Tail.”
The car was equipped with wheels of different widths on the front and rear axles for higher cornering speeds and braking power.
The RS 2.7 was the first 911 to be given the name “Carrera”, based on the road classic Carrera Panamericana.
Another sensational addition to the PLAYMOBIL collection is The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. The sports car icon from the 1950s with the legendary gullwing doors, equipped with figures and accessories in a 1950s racing scene.
The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, is a classic sports car icon from the 1950s with distinctive gullwing doors. When it was unveiled at the International Motor Sports Show in New York in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was considered the fastest sports car of its time, reaching top speeds of 228 mph.
With its gullwing doors, gasoline direct injection, and lattice tubular frame, the 300 SL is highly recognizable. The 300 SL’s recipe for success is its perfect blend of rough-and-tumble racing character mixed with a dash of luxury and extravagance. And now, the dream sports car of the 20th century appears as a PLAYMOBIL version with chrome-coloured bumpers and radiator grille, and 50s accessories.
The doors can be easily opened to seat your play figures and there is more than enough room in the trunk for easy accessory storage. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL from PLAYMOBIL is an impressive, detailed reproduction of the original that will excite all sports car fans and is a must in every collection.
Your set includes a race car driver, mechanic, toolbox, finish line flag, pit board, and many other accessories for a fun race around the track. The included table plaque lists the sports car’s most important information. Recommended for ages five to ninety-nine years!
