Gullwing America who specialize in tuning the Mercedes-Benz 300SL have planned a new project that was ordered by a customer from Europe. The customer requested an exclusive one off sports car design. To achieve this, the GWA team selected a 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster (R-197) as the base for their project. The end result will be a 21st century 300 SLC, a convertible roadster with a removable hard top.
GWA has decided to create a handmade aluminum body, which will be modeled on the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC (W-188), only 92 of which were ever produced. The body will receive some modern touches including changing the position of the pop-out rear spoiler and modernizing the headlights with LED’s. The grille was redesigned with an assertive, yet elegant, slant and illuminated emblem on the top.
