AMG-Modified Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Discovered

The Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing was initially unveiled by the luxury vehicle manufacturer in 1954 and production was limited to 1,400 units until 1957.

The 300SL Gullwing on the video of MasterX9911 was initially exported to other countries and when it made its way back to Germany, AMG engineers did what they do best, modify it. Any modifications made on any luxury vehicle normally result to some interesting words from Mercedes-Benz collectors.

Classic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Gets a Totally Unusual Makeover From Mechanic

Maybe checking out if they could produce some lift? All in the spirit of fun, we suppose, as… Continue Reading »
