Mercedes 300 SL “Gullwing Tribute”: a replica for sale

This “Gullwing Tribute” replica, much more accessible than the real Mercedes 300 SL, still hides under its hood a mechanism signed AMG …

It is probably one of the most remarkable vintage cars in history, with its curved lines and gullwing doors: the Mercedes 300 SL « Gullwing » has become over the years a real myth, just like a Jaguar Type E or a Lamborghini Miura. True rarity with only 1,400 copies products, the price of the German coupe now exceeds one million euros on the collection market.

Mercedes 300 SL “Gullwing Tribute”: a basis for 2001 Mercedes SLK 32 AMG

For smaller budgets, many Mercedes 300 SL replicas have been carried out: this is based on a Mercedes SLK 32 AMG from 2001, whose body was cut to accommodate its new dress, and which also received a steel hoop to ensure its rigidity.

The body and aluminum was made to measure, thanks to a 3D scan of the authentic Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing (Type W198). Some elements have been personalized to the taste of its owner, such as the absence of bumpers, but the gullwing doors are, of course, there.


The interior was trimmed with red leather, but the whole still betrays the SLK hidden there! There are, however, many modern equipment that are not unpleasant, such as air conditioning, airbags or power steering … Under the hood, hides the 3.2-liter compressed V6 of the SLK 32 AMG, which develops the power of 354 horsepower for 450 Nm of torque, combined with a five-speed automatic transmission.

This Mercedes 300 SL “Gullwing Tribute” replica is for sale at Crossley & Webb, a luxury car specialist located in Cape Town, South Africa, for the sum of 1,800,000 rand, the equivalent of 105.300 euros.
