'The Silver Arrows are one of the most amazing phenomena ever seen in motor racing.' Albrecht Würschum, Sales Manager at CMC Modelcars, could back up his claim with sales figures of their model range, but there's no need: just a glimpse of the 1:18 scale model of the Mercedes-Benz formula racing car from the 1930s and 1950s – or indeed the actual thing – is more than enough to convince most people.
'The Blue Wonder racing car transporter of the 1950s is a best-seller in our product range,' Würschum adds. 'That's why we've also made its counterpart from the first great age of the Silver Arrows.' Now collectors can provide their W 25, W 125 and W 154 models with a mobile garage, as originally used to transport the winning cars to the Grand Prix circuits and back.
