Stuttgart/Berlin
For the fifth consecutive year, readers of "Modell Fahrzeug", Germany's biggest model car magazine, have selected Mercedes-Benz as "top benchmark brand". In the readers' opinion, Mercedes-Benz is the one among all automotive manufacturers most accomplished in maintaining the best selection and overall assortment of model cars. 
Readers were also able to vote for a total of 162 model cars in 22 categories. Four miniatures based on Daimler vehicles came first in their field. These include:
  • Category D; collectors, scale 1:43, classic series-produced vehicle: Mercedes-Benz 170 V, carrying two Brütsch Mopettas, manufactured by Schuco
  • Category E; collectors, scale 1:43, current series-produced vehicle: Mercedes-AMG GT Coupé by Norev 
  • Category S; remote control, electric-powered working vehicle: Unimog 425, scale 1:10, by Tamiya
Mercedes-Benz's commitment to model car manufacturing can be seen in the current "Model Car Selection 2015" brochure. It includes a total of 350 model cars in various scales, with depictions of over half of the featured high-quality, detailed miniatures. The brochure is published in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Russian and is available from Mercedes-Benz sales partners.
Alternatively, the German version can be browsed online at or downloaded as an e-paper.
