One-Off 1974 300SL Gullwing Packs 4.5-Liter V8

Mercedes-AMG

Rebuilt by AMG for its 17th birthday, it makes 280 horsepower.

The classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of automotive art ever built. As such, many would frown upon making any changes to its original form. But what if a 1974 example made its way back to Mercedes’ in-house specialist, AMG, coming back to life after 17 years on the road with a 280 horsepower, 4.5-liter V8 engine (only because a larger 6.3-liter unit wouldn’t fit)? The car also received several exterior updates, setting it apart from all its counterparts.

Check out the unique story of this singular Gullwing Mercedes.
