1955 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
A very rare replica built by Speedster Motorcars in Clearwater, lorida - one of only 20 built. The cars architecture was derived from the Speedster and Z-series Models, tubular chassis frame with coil-over shock suspension, ontrol arms in front and 4-link at the rear, ack & pinion steering and four wheel vented power disc brakes. The powertrain is a GM Vortec V8 5.3 liter engine and 4-speed 4L60E automatic transmission. The fiberglass body rises only 51" from the pavement, xactly the same as the original and the whole car weighs just over 2,700 pounds. Just 20 were built before Speedster Motorcars went into remission in March of 2008. A virtually new car with 2000 miles since built, his GW Coupe is stunning in Arctic Silver over berry leather. The doors operate in the iconic overhead fashion, eading one to a cockpit that is equally elegant. Almost hidden are the creature comforts from air conditioning to an analog clock. The instruments elegantly finished in white on grey. Not withstanding the chrome wheels, he car has restrained brightwork. The whole package represents good value and convenience, ith just 20 built, t is a rare car for sure. The car is titled as a 1955 mercedes.
