Perfect Pair: Original-Owner 1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and Roadster Headed to Auction

  Perfect Pair: Original-Owner 1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and Roadster Headed to Auction <p>The SLs are both completely original, unrestored examples owned by a single family since new.</p>Of the two, the Gullwing coupe is the more rare example, as its original owner requested it be specially painted in British Racing Green over a tan interior. It has about 16,000 miles on the odometer and has been in the same family since new, with no restoration or modification undertaken over its 60-plus-year lifetime. The 300SL roadster, purchased by the same family two years later, is equally stunning if a bit less distinctive in its Silver-Blue Metallic exterior and gray leather interior. It also comes with an original fitted luggage set.

The teaser emphasizes the model's long hood and large wheels, which look a bit more realistic than the ones on the Vision 6.

Total system output is 738 hp, enough to propel the big coupe to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds. Whether or not the concept comes to fruition, the four-motor powertrain is in development for series production.
