Ever wanted to build your own Mercedes, well these guys did. This is not just any Mercedes, but a Mclaren SLR that they built from what seems to be an old American muscle car. There isn’t much detail on how he transformed the car into the SLR, but the images provide a nice storyline on how it happend.

Update: Some people have pointed out that the car they started out with was a 500SEC and not a American muscle car, which I mistakenly thought it was. Either way, the transformation looks very good from the outside, but we have no way of telling how the interior turned out, which for some people is the more important part.

  1. I agree, It doesn’t look like the real deal, but I think that the guy (or probably a group of people) did a good job transforming what was nothing into a very cheap SLR.

    This actually reminds me of the guys who transformed an NSX into a Ferrari. We all know it is not an actual supercar, but it kinda looks like one.

  2. Thank you Lucas, I’ve gotten a couple of emails about this. Sorry for the mistake, but to me it looked like a Mustang from the back.

  3. I happen to have a Mclaren slr in my shop right now and i gotta say that this is a damn good job at recreating the body.

  4. That car was built in Poland. Guy has built it from a model about 1:25, before the real mclaren mercedes slr was built. That guy restores old cars. When he saw car model of mclaren he wanted to have one. He has made it in his garage

  5. That is amazing still, to be able to do that. Exellent work, these guys should think about designing their own car they could make themselves a fortune. Restoring used cars will be good business in the near future after the crunch because there is going to be a shortage of good used cars for sale in a few years time as a result.

  6. Very impressive.
    Question.. were the body party such as the nose cut fabricated from fiberglass molds or did they actualy use actual Mclaren body parts.
    If so where did they get them?
