These are both very nice castings of the Mercedes Benz CLS. The Siku version is way more detailed than the Matchbox version; it has opening doors, detailed rims with rubber tires, & clear plastic insert lights. The only downside to the Siku version is that it's slightly bigger than 1/64, and the sunroof is in the closed position. The Matchbox has the open sunroof, but the rims are not realistic, and it has no opening parts.


This is the Mercedes Benz S500. The Siku version has plastic insert lights, opening doors, a beautiful chrome-like paint job, & two piece detailed wheels. Again, I wish the sunroof was not in the closed position on the Siku version, and that it was open like the Matchbox version. Also, the Siku version is slightly bigger in scale than the Matchbox. The Matchbox though, has the unrealistic rims and no opening parts, but still a nice car.


Overall, I do like the Siku castings better since they are much more detailed, but they are barely obtainable in the US unless you resort to the internet.

I try to keep stock at level on these 'recent' Siku's.

They are indeed very nice, they become better and better with each new release. Wait till you see the news for 2007! Lots of Audi's.

You have to admit that all of a sudden MB has released some nice European cars. The VW GTI, The Porsche Cayannes, the Audi/Mercedes Wagons are sharp. I love station wagons (I drive a Passat Wagon VR6 4-Motion) and it's been a buying fest for me lately with these new MB european releases. Can't wait for the MB British release of the double decker bus.
