S-Klub Teases a New Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster Restomod

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster is such a gem in the three-pointed star marque’s colorful history. So it is such a treat seeing one in a good condition, and it is such a delight seeing this classic being restored to its near-pristine condition. It comes as worrisome though whenever a tuner announces its plans to make major alterations to the vehicle. Aftermarket tuner S-Klub recently announced its plans to release a new 300 SL Roadster restomod. It comes with some teasers from Jon Sibal, a car designer who is known for his virtual auto concepts and 3D renders. One of the recent projects of the artist was the Porsche 550… Continue Reading »

The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL by AMG is Beautiful but Blasphemous

The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Coupe is such a rarity. Only 1,400 units of the car came out of the assembly line more than half a century ago, and only a few of them survived the test of time. So for true classic car enthusiasts, it is something that is better left untouched. Back in 1997, when AMG was not yet acquired by the former DaimlerChrysler, 11 units of the 300 SL went under its knife for resto-mod. The restoration part for the Gullwings should be fine, but modifying and fitting them with more modern components is utterly blasphemous. There would have been a public outcry over them from… Continue Reading »

The iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Coupe produced from 1954 to 1957 is one of the most sought after classic cars of collectors.

It’s also fitted with special unrestored Rudge wheels. The vehicle was made as a US-export model and has gone through five owners in… Continue Reading »

Porsche Aficionado Magnus Walker Drives The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

It’s not every day you’ll get to see Magnus Walker in a Mercedes-Benz but if he has to drive one, it better be the pristine Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. Walker, a Porsche expert and aficionado, drove the 300 SL Gullwing together with his girlfriend Hannah Elliot at the Silvretta Classic Rally this year. Walker, also known as the Urban Outlaw, would normally drive his Porsche 911 in the Rally. Not this year, though. He took the wheel from Daimler themselves and drove the 300 SL Gullwing around the finest Alpine roads of Austria, which he is visiting for the first time. But aside from Austrian roads, Walker also took the… Continue Reading »

Rare and Untouched Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster and Gullwing For Sale

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster and Gullwing are definitely two timeless beauties. That’s why these have high demand from car collectors. Recently, both models were advertised for auction at Artcurial Motorcars. The most impressive thing about these rare finds was that they were in good running condition and virtually untouched with their very low mileage. There were no record of the two showing that they underwent any form of restoration. Both classic SL units were owned Gunnar Giermark, a Swedish dental surgeon and car collector.
