The 1955 Mercedes Benz Gullwing is considered by many as the Mercedes most beautiful automobile. You are viewing an exact recreation by Tony Ostermeier’s of this desirable car with the handling, features and reliability of a modern car.
In the 90’s Gullwing Cars, in Gardena CA. produced approximately 50 handcrafted cars utilizing the same dimensions and materials as the original Mercedes Gullwing. This is one of those magnificent recreations by Gullwing Cars with contemporary state of the art drive train and components. A professionally built that cannot be told visually from the original.
This hand-crafted tribute is build with Mercedes Benz components like: Mercedes Benz 24 valves E-class engine, 5 speed, rear axle, suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes. Exterior with original or NOS body trim, glass, hardware and interior components.
Enjoy the look of a classic with refinement of a comfortable 90’s era Mercedes with cold air conditioning, fitted luggage and a very desirable Silver and red leather combination with only 1,965 original miles.

From WikipediaThe Mercedes-Benz 300SL was introduced in 1954 as a two-seat, closed sports car with distinctive gull-wing doors. Later it was offered as an open roadster. It was the fastest production car of its day. Built by Daimler-Benz AG and internally numbered W198, the fuel-injected road version was based (somewhat loosely) on the company's highly successful competition-only sports car of 1952, the somewhat less powerful carbureted Mercedes-Benz 300SL (W194). The road model was suggested by Max Hoffman.
