Description

This tribute to the classic 300SL built around a purpose built chassis that not only provides a platform for the classic shapes but also allows use of a modern fuel injected Chevrolet engine and transmission. The added power and reliability of this combination make this 300SL one of the most exciting to pilot. Finished in an iconic silver the exterior of the car is in pristine condition with very little signs of use. The interior is a faithful tribute to the original, except for the vintage air AC controls. The 5.7 liter engine never misses a beat and can propel this Mercedes at highways speeds, even on long trips. Drawing more attention than most other cars on the road this tribute provides an opportunity to drive distances most would never consider in an original.
