 The New 300SL Gullwing II by husseindesign  The New 300SL Gullwing II 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.

Nice! Like the motion blur as well, really sets it off. Have you though about sending some of your designs into Lambo, or Mercedes or whatever and seeing if they'll take them?

That is one of my favorites of redesigned cars. I saw you in cardesignnews.de some months ago and really that's fantastic work. I'm from Pforzheim too. I suppose you are or were on the HfG.

I doubt the 300SL Gullwing can be called a sports car of the 20th century. It's rather heavy, with poor maneuverability and weak brakes - feels like you're drivin' a truck. If to add immense saloon overheating problem along with a question: "How to get in/out without hurting my back/head" this car is far from ideal but it's, of course, a beauty :)

the side scallops and brightwork are slightly remniscent of the Z roadster, the face is slightly aston martin, and the tail has a little bangle-butt. things that seperate i don't like, although i love this completely. the rear haunches are perfect with the reverse-out treatment.

very nice 300SL! i love the front design! i love short front overhangs... :) the rear looks cayman-ish... but its good. :)
the thing right above the rear-wheel-well, the deep groove, it's too deep i guess... in this view. or is it just that the bulge above the fender is not that big unlike to that of the front (quarter) view.
isn't it too cab-forward for a front engined super car? there's no room for rear seats so what's behind the driver? or the trunk is just that big?
and the door is positioned too high. i think getting in and out is really hard.
these are just my opinions.. :) i'd love to see more pics! :) if possible 3d renders of this? i really love the front design! :D nice sketches too of the 300sl!! very good designs in your gallery!
