What you see here is a pile of scrap metal transformed by artistic vision into a full-scale replica of the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300SL “Gullwing.” It’s made entirely of reclaimed car parts and random pieces of scrap by German firm Giganten Aus Stahl, which roughly translates as Giants of Steel. It’s just one of a number of creations the studio offers to those with enough, um, “scrap” to buy the unique creations. The Mercedes 300 SLR will be shown at the IAA in Frankfurt 2011. The Gullwing fetches a princely €69,000 ($96k), while the Porsche and Auto Union are available for €39,000 ($54k) and €54,000 ($75k).
