Arturo Alonso and his company Gullwing America are work on the ‘rebirth’ of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. Branded as the 2009 300 SL Panamericana, the model is based on a copy made by Gullwing AG – who creates the closest model you can get to the real 300 SL.

The 2009 Gullwing-America 300 SL Panamericana is the idea of Arturo Alonso, the identical engineer behind the Bentley S3 E concept. With that model by now on its way to market, Alonso has turned his interest to the Gullwing. With a body of fiberglass-reinforced aluminum above a powder-coated steel chassis, the Panamericana will in fact get its power from Mercedes’ own M-133-55 engine, the same 5.5-liter V8 underpinning the SLR McLaren’s supercharged unit, albeit tuned to create 370 hp. Strategy are as well afoot to make a lesser V6 available, also mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-ratio Speedtronic automatic transmission.

The vehicle as well has a four-spoke leather wheel, a start button, top-shelf radio, and a four-point harness. The vehicle travel on 17×8 inch AMG wheels wrapped in Continental Sport tires. Red AMG calipers will look amazing with the red-accented paint job. Blacked-out wheels will look fine on the black painted car, but there is a exact argument for chrome or even matte-silver on the cream with red. With the HID lights, this vehicle look incredible.
