2010 Gullwing???

I don't know if this has been posted or discussed previously, but here it goes:

Mercedes Benz is planning on bringing a new super sports car to the market for 2010, based on the old Gullwing or also known as 300SL. It'll be labeled as the W197, but has yet to receive a name. It will be powered by a twin turbo 8 cylinder Mercedes Benz AMG engine with 620 HP, and unlike the McLaren SLR will be build by Mercedes Benz alone. Price is estimated to be somewhere around at least 150.000 Euro's.

I attached some pictures. The full report was covered in the German newspaper "Bild" today. (Neuer Überflieger von Mercedes: Flügeltürer mit 620 PS kommt 2010 - Auto - Bild.T-Online.de)

Enjoy!

I agree it looks like a combo of 911 and SLR.

The star on the hood, sure does look good.

headlights are very much like the Mini Cooper. 150,000 Euro sounds like a great deal. Nowadays that money will buy you half a long S65 AMG

I doubt that it's photoshoped from Porsche. I mean the front end looks a lot like one, but if you look carefully at all the lines (hood, grill,body, etc.) it resembles the old 300SL quite a bit...

i really hate artists' renderings...they're basically bullshit artists....but if i had 200k euro i'd buy the original and put a modern engine/drive train/suspension in it...
