Autobild recently set out to settle the question of which M vehicle is the fastest in the BMW stable at the moment.

After having its cover pimped out all over the internet on account of this mouth watering rendering, German mag Autobild has finally posted what it knows about a possible resurrection of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL gullwing.
