The New 300SL Gullwing by husseindesign The New 300SL Gullwing by husseindesign
The Gullwing, or as it's called in Germany, Der Flügeltürer was chosen as the Sports car of the 20. Century.
In 1954 it revolutionized the world of car design and sports cars and started a new era for Mercedes Benz: The SL was born.

What you see here is an attempt to revive this legendary vehicle with fresh design and reinterpreted design elements for the new century. Rumours say that Mercedes is indeed working on a modern Version of the Gullwing for the model year 2011.
So this is my interpretation of a modern version of the legendary 300SL. It's quite hard to top the original which is one of the most beautiful cars ever made in the automotive history. So this wasn't an attempt to top it, but to 'polish it up' in order to make it ready to hit the streets of our current time and the future.

Edit: modified some details (lights, etc..)

Ummm. Will you photsop a Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans. It's the sexiest car in the world with, 600+ hp and torque, the body is made of REAMS so it can stop a .22 caliber bullet at twenty feet, only 81 one units of these beautiesb were made, at 480,000. I sound like a car magazine. Oh and they inly come in threee colors powder blue, red and silver. Also has an unspecified motor.

Were there leaked pics back in 06? Or did you update the picture when the Gullwing actually came out? That looks almost exactly like the real thing.

When i saw this, i actually thought it was a new concept car for mercedes. You should honestly become a car designer, if you aren't already one.. And you should send this design to mercedes with a patent, because you could make some serious money =D
