Paul, sorry, I don't know if one is made but I have to say I did get a ride in a black E55 last fall. Mind-blowing! I never would have looked at one on the street before and now I get chills just seeing a picture of one!

Tamiya also does a 1/24 SLK.

Yes. Thank you I have seen these. Almost what I want but not quite.

None of the current E55's are kitted. Fujimi did a late '90's E55.

Does Fujimi have a website? what is it? Are those kits still being made? I saw a mid 90's E320 on ebay, but if fujimi makes a late 90's E55 I'll take one for sure.

It's out of production, so finding one may be problematic. I remember seeing one or two at a local Hobbytown a couple of years ago, for BIG $$ (about $50 each, insane for that kit). Perhaps EBay will net you one.

Here's a link to show you the boxart. The model is not exactly the same as this boxart, which shows the later ('00 and up) front end. The kit represents the '99 and earlier E55 with the "split" front bumper. The rear license surround it Euro-sized, the interior is pretty crude by modern standards. The rims are really nice.
