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. The boys and girls at AMG
, not Mercedes
proper, are likely doing development and production of the vehicle, which will likely be powered by a 6.3L biturbo V8 developing 750 hp. A seven-speed double clutch transmission, aluminum skin and perfect 50:50 weight distribution are all part of this automotive revival due out sometime around 2010.
Oh, and that rendering, pure speculation on the part of Autobild's artists, but oh what an imagination those Germans have!
