LeGrand 1/8 model kit LE102 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut Coupe" (1955). Pocher importer LEMKE is announcing a sensational new kit for 2021: Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR in the large scale 1/8. The already available Volkswagen Beetle convertible should only be the entry into a series of new 1/8 kits. The preliminary highlight of the series is the "Uhlenhaut Coupe" from 1955. Not to be confused with the well-known Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing - the 300 SLR is a thoroughbred racing car with an 8-cylinder in-line engine. According to LeGrand, the kit level in terms of difficulty should also be suitable for non-professionals - almost all parts are screwed and therefore the assembly is relatively easy to accomplish.

Tobias Lemke from LeGRAND confirms the final delivery date for the long-awaited Mercedes SLR kit in 1/8 for early December 2023. At the same time there are a number of new photos - see above!
Note from 2023-04-23:
LeGrand now speaks of "autumn 2023" as the date for the delivery of the 300 SLR kit. Unfortunately, we have no control over the release date of our supplier. We ask all our customers for understanding and above all for further Patience.
Note from 2022-11-30:
After Lemke increased its sales price to EUR 1198.00 and our purchase price was also adjusted, we unfortunately feel compelled to adjust our price for the Mercedes 300 SLR again. It is now EUR 1150.00. This applies retrospectively to all orders placed so far, including those from a long time ago, for which the announced price was significantly lower. We regret this and sincerely hope that the prices now announced will remain and will not have to be adjusted again. Tobias Lemke also announces that most of the production (1500 copies) has already been pre-ordered.
Note from 2022-11-24:
We therefore recommend placing your order soon if you wish to have a 300 SLR as it is likely that by the May/June delivery date there will be production reserved. Lemke company provides a PDF document on the Mercedes 300 SLR with the latest developments and an updated release date:

Note from 2022-06-23:
Unfortunately, the Lemke company has once again raised the targeted price for the SLR Mercedes kit. It is now EUR 1198.00. We have therefore calculated sharply again and set our sales price at EUR 1150.00. We hope it stays that way and that this wonderful model will finally be available!
Note from 2021-11-22:
Manufacturer Lemke announces that the final delivery of the 300 SLR kit is not expected before December 2022. Of course, all of our customers' pre-orders will remain in place until then.
Note from 2021-06-22:
Lemke talks of a new release date in April 2022.
Note from 2021-02-27:
Lemke has made new images of the prototype available: the successful depiction of the wheels, the engine and the units in the trunk is easy to see. That whets the appetite for the kit.
Note from 2020-12-21:
Lemke talks of a release date in December 2021.
Note from 2020-12-17:
Lemke today announced the final price for the Mercedes 300 SLR kit: the list price will be Euro 1098.00. We therefore set our sales price at EUR 1050.00. The SLR can now be ordered again. The exact release date is unfortunately not yet known.
Note from 2020-01-29:
LeGrand manufacturer Lemke reports that the research, construction and production of the new Mercedes 300 SLR kit is significantly more problematic than originally planned. The publication date must therefore be corrected to spring 2021. Even the previously targeted price of EUR 998.00 can probably no longer be held. We have therefore stopped selling the new LeGrand model at the moment and will only accept new orders after the final selling price has been announced. We ask our customers for understanding that we will probably have to correct the sales price. If you do not agree, you can of course withdraw from your order at any time.
