New Gullwing Mercedes

Sat May 13, 2006 4:42 pm

There are rumors that Mercedes/AMG are planning a new version of the famous "gullwing".
Here is an artist impression how the car could look like:

The SLR McLaren is a gulwing, but that one is more like the orginal.

Looks like a bad combo of the old-school gullwing Benz, typical modern Merc lines, and the new Opel GT.

Quoting DAL767400ER (Reply 2):
the new Opel GT.

My first thought...

Hope they keep the curved kind of shape to the car.

It looks much better than I would have expected (in my opinion).

I still think the old gullwing was one of the best looking cars ever (and one of the most ahead of its time).

I think the current one is perhaps the best looking car out there. While the new one looks really good, it's a step down from the present.
