Mercedes 300SL to return, or just a rumor?

Will Mercedes-Benz bring back the 300SL "Gullwing?" Autobild seems to think so. Jumping on the retro bandwagon that has spawned the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger Concept and Chevy Camaro Concept, Mercedes might be hoping to cash in on a little nostalgia itself. While there's no official word from Mercedes, Autobild seems to think that the vehicle would come on the SL platform and be priced as a limited edition collector car.

The original Gullwing (pictured) hearkens back to the years 1954-57 and retails today anywhere from $275,000 to $2,000,000 if the competition history can be trusted.

So here's the question... is this car really just the anniversary edition SL550 that John reported on here? Like kids who can never get enough candy, we hope we'll get both cars...
