1/5 1954 – 1962 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing / Roadster chassis.
This is an amazing large scale replica of the engine and chassis from the Gullwing with mounted wheels and tires. It has been scratch built in Germany from over 2650 individual metal parts, so no detail has been left out! This museum quality model weighs 27 lbs / 12 kgs and measures over 2.5 feet long (31″ / 79cm), 14.5″ wide and 8.5″ tall. The steering wheel pivots down like the real car, and the knock offs spin so you can remove the wheels and see the articulated brakes.
This model is spectacular, and it is a ‘must’ for the Mercedes enthusiast or Gullwing owner.
Note that Mercedes themselves displayed a full chassis on their stand when they launched the Gullwing at the 1954 Paris show.
A tiny edition of just 10 of these replicas have been specially built for our gallery, and now just one remains!
