Motorshow models

- Herpa limited runs for the Motorshow Essen -

Since 1989, Herpa has had its own representation at the Essen Motorshow, which is held in Essen, Germany every year in the last week of november / first week of december.

As a promotional, Herpa created different models for each years Motorshow. As a sideline I have a little collection of these models, the only one missing is the 1996 model. With the exception of the Mini, they were al packed in Herpa's standard PC-box. Pictures of the models are posted on this page. (Unfortunately, Herpa has decided to stop making these promotionals in 1999, so the 1998 model is the last one).
