Don't Pass Up The Hot Wheels Elite 64 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

The second car in the Hot Wheels Elite 64 series goes on sale on Tuesday the 7th of February 2023 and this is one you won't want to miss. The second casting to be released in the Elite 64 series is the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. It's a beautiful casting in a Graphite Gray with a ZAMAC body type and Real Rider Steelie wheels.

There are several reasons we believe this is one car you won't want to miss when it's released. Apart from the beautiful casting and paint job, this car has a number of things going for it that will make it a long-term hold in your collection for value.

Second release but labeled Number 1

Even though the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is the second in the Elite 64 to be released, with the first being the 1996 Toyota Chaser JZX100, the packaging lists it as the first in the series. As any collector knows, the first of anything in a series is often the most popular.

Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is a popular casting

Historically, Hot Wheels cars with the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL casting have been popular cars. The 2021 Red Line Club Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was one of the more popular 2021 Red Line Club cars and the 2019 Red Line Club Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is also popular and has an even higher value on the secondary market.

Not limited but still limited

While the Elite 64 series of cars are not limited to Red Line Club members and there is no limit to the number of cars anyone can purchase, that does not mean these cars are unlimited. As we saw with the Toyota Chaser, these cars do sell out. This makes them a limited release and their value will increase over time in the secondary market. The Toyota Chaser has already seen a 60% increase in value since its release and we expect that value to only increase over time.

With the Elite 64 series planned to continue over the years, it's important to not miss out on your chance to get the early models in this series.
