How can something be both "modern" and "classic"? We can feel the conflict welling up inside of you, but don't fret! We know how to resolve it – by showing you all five cool castings from the fifth mix of our 2020 Car Culture series!
The "Modern Classics" mix features newer cars that may not have been around for as long as some of the "older" classics, but have still been around long enough to own well-earned places in the hearts of car lovers and collectors. They're already standing the test of time!
Naturally, you'll find all-metal castings and Real Riders wheels on these, as well as one new casting and one more with a die-cast chassis for the very first time. Will you expand your definition of "classic" thanks to this mix? We'd bet our deco on it!

- '72 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL 4.5 (New casting!)
- '98 Subaru Impreza 22B STi-Version (New die-cast chassis!)
