New York 2011: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG wearing Gulf livery – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you watched auto racing in the 1960s and 70s, your eyes likely caught sight of baby blue and orange streaks roaring to victory on tracks around the world. Gulf livery has since become an iconic paint scheme for everything from the ratty street cars of wide-eyed boy racers to expensive watches and clothing for those looking to embrace their inner McQueen. Hell, there's even a drift-happy Freightliner wearing the oil company's famous colors. Mercedes-Benz has decided to bring a touch of those famous colors in the form of a tarted-up SLS AMG.

It's no Porsche 917... but it's still pretty cool looking, and we've got a full gallery for you to look through below.
