The 1/18 Scale Miniature of the BMW E39 M5 by Otto Models

For collectors and enthusiasts, this 1/18-scale miniature by Otto Models offers a remarkable replica of the iconic BMW E39 M5. Particularly striking about this model is that it is made from resin, leading to a highly detailed finish and precision. However, this specific model is a modified version and does not represent the original product from Otto Models. The detailing of the lights, the iconic kidney grille, and the sporty rims give the miniature an authentic touch. The rims visible in the model are correctly identified as being from BBS, specifically the RC model.
