  • Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing replica based on SLK-Class

    The Mercedes-Benz 300SL is an icon for the German brand and pristine examples sell for well over $1 million.

It's not a vintage 300SL, unless you consider the year 2000 vintage. Yes, this car is actually a 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK320 under the skin. Road & Track reported on the seriously well-done replica on Friday after the car was listed for sale via German website Classic Driver. Since it's a rather modern car under the skin, it has most of the...
