This year is the 30th anniversary since the first production W152 came out of the Ronart factory and to celebrate this we are offering a limited edition model to the next five customers placing car/kit orders this year. This version will have visible feature and badges not found on the other cars and they come with the car being signed by the designer. These can be either the W152 S6 or V12 or with the new alloy version. We will start building this batch of chassis next month, the first of these special anniversary cars has already been sold so to reserve your chassis number contact us now as the next standard chassis batch will not be made untill around this time next year.
