White gullwing in the bay area with grey interior sold for $15k earlier this year

Black gullwing in tx was under $20k but doors were geld up with poles

This one is way overpriced they are hoping they find someone with money to burn

I also quite honestly don't trust anyone other than MB to do Gullwing doors. There are major issues with crash safety, because even on the latest MB Gullwing, in case of a crash there are small explosives on the door joints to release the door for opening. I don't even want to think about what this car posted here would look like or what protection it could offer in the event of a crash. And then there's the fact that it really ISN'T a Gullwing because it wasn't done by MB.

No thanks..

The white WB is awesome
I love the interior (48hp can add the pic to his AMG door cards thread)
Interestingly the seat adaptors look homemade, must be an AMG japan thing to just knock some up rather than use recaro ones....

As to the gullwing thing I think Gullwing SECs are wicked in their garish intent and thier look at me im the best Shiek/Drug dealer/porn star/mid life crisis dude ever
But the compromise is loosing one of the key elements in the success of the SEC's design ,being the lack of a B pillar
As far as safety is conserned if its a well enginered conversion it should be no more dangerious than driving in a delorian or a toyota sera or a contach for that matter(try opening sissor doors when a cars on its roof lol)
