Trend: Neue Computer-Designstudien großer Automobiltypen Scheint so ein gewisser Trend zu sein, man nehme einfach ein altes schönes Fahrzeug und bringe die Form als neues Retro-Fahrzeug im WWW heraus.... dabei muß die Studie so real wie möglich erscheinen. NAch C111 und div. 300SL Interpretationen hat sich nun jemand an den 300 Sc Roadster gewagt.

Hier ein (nicht ernster) Text dazu:

Gullwing America is working on a 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster which will get an entirely different body.

An undisclosed customer from Eastern Europe has ordered a one-of-a-kind car which is based on a 2012 SLS AMG Roadster (R197). The handmade aluminum body will be modeled after the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC (W 188) which was made in only 92 units.

As the images show, the front grille was redesigned, while the position of the rear spoiler was modified. Other changes include new LED headlights, custom exhaust system, adjustable height suspension and a removable hard top. The GWA 300 rides on 21-inch wheels at the front and 22-inch alloys at the back with Continental tires.

GWA’s unique take on “retro styling meets modern technology” has caught the eye of an undisclosed client from Eastern Europe. This client has requested an exclusive sports car design that will be one-of-a-kind. A challenge that GWA was happy to take on.

For this particular project, GWA selected a 2012 SLS Roadster (R-197) as the base. Its platform running gear and interior features will require only slight changes, since this car is a masterpiece of technology already.

Where GWA will bring in their expert touch is with the handmade aluminum body, which will be modeled after a 1955 300 SC (W-188). Only 92 of these cars were ever made.

“We tried to keep the original lines of this model, which are timeless,” says Arturo Alonso, head of GWA. However, making it truly unique required some changes. This included changing the position of the pop-out rear spoiler and modernizing the headlights with LED’s. The grille was redesigned with an assertive, yet elegant, slant and illuminated emblem on the top.

The car also has custom made, 22 x 12 rear and 21 x 9.5 front, GWA Evolution wheels mounted on Continental tires. A special exhaust system and adjustable height suspension finish off the enhancements.
The culmination of GWA’s vision results in a 21st century 300 SLC, a convertible roadster with a removable hard top. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

GWA will oversee every step of the process until the car is delivered. They have no doubt it will be truly one of a kind and just what their VIP client is looking for.
