Classic Mercedes-Benz 280 CE (W114) from 1972

There are plenty of Mercedes-Benz model cars in 1:18 scale. But none fits my original 1:1 Mercedes-Benz from 1972 in color, engine type and so on.

Then I had an idea: I can build my own model with LEGO!

I designed a LEGO model of my own car using LDD. The engine, transmission and differential is fully functional. Camshafts and cooling are rotating and driven by rear axle, engine hood and trunk can be opened. There are a lot of tiny details such as lighting in the ceiling, loud speaker in the cockpit, mirror just on left side.

Neben der passenden Außenfarbe und Innenausstattung habe ich dem LEGO Strichacht einige Details verpasst: Mittelarmlehne am Beifahrersitz, Mittelkonsole mit Teppich, Fontbeleuchtung im Dachhimmel, Ersatzrad im Kofferraum, Lautsprecher im Armaturenbrett, Lüftungsgitter unter der Frontscheibe, Außenspiegel nur auf Fahrerseite, usw.

This model already got sone attention by Mercedes-Benz instagram accounts @mercedesbenz and @mbclassiccenter
