January and February OttO's drop for preorder
It's my favorite time of year! Yeah, the Holidays are fun and all, but I'm talking about when OttOmobile announces their next round of new models! 2020's first offerings heavily favor the Europeans, with only two of the ten cars being from another continent. Not that I'm complaining; let's look at January's models:
The obvious stand-out here is the Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL AMG. Whenever OttO releases a blacked out AMG, it sells out fast then skyrockets in value. Just try to find a 560 SEC for a reasonable price. Believe me, I have been trying forever! Then we have a quirky pair from the turn of the millennium. There's the Alfa Romeo GTV V6 in red, and the Renault Avantime: the minivan that was also a coupe! A classic red Matra 530 is a pleasant surprise from the resin maker. Last but not least, their traditional rally car from the set hails from Japan. This Toyota Celica 1600 raced at the RAC rally in 1973!
Man oh man, February can't come soon enough. It doesn't get much better than a Midnight Purple R34 GTR Z-Tune, does it? This might just find a spot next to my Mine's R34 from OttO that I scored a couple months ago. Things get a little weird with the AC Schnitzer E36. No one is a bigger fan of the E36 than me, except maybe Androoo, but this green on green machine is a little too unsettling for me. The classic car from the set is a Ford Capri MkII, a European car from the American brand. OttO includes a modern classic in February with the Renault Clio 3 Phase 2 Sport Cup (say that five times fast). Rally car fans get Sebastien Loeb's 2017 Peugeot 306 Maxi that he brought to and won the National Rally of Haute-Provence with.
