It's a discontinued model from Minichamps. SmartUSA had a super sale in 2012 to clear out the final few models.

Minichamps does still have a few more colours available. Unfortunately it appears they're no longer building new ones, so once they run out that's it! :eek:

Also do a Google Search for "Minichamps smart fortwo". It turns up plenty of results. Beware, these things cost around $80 new (I got mine for $27 from SmartUSA) so those trying to sell them for $160 is just absurd.

Oh and I forgot to say. To me they're definitely worth the price (original price, not higher! :)). The quality of these things is beyond superb. They simulate everything even down to how the DeDion tube works. Everything is a working part and they don't even miss tiny details like buttons on the button bank and such...

When it comes to smart models, Minichamps is unmatched...by a long shot...
