2009 Gullwing 300SL Panamericana, the Legend Reborn
We'll leave the looks of the sports car to your consideration, so you can decide whether it is a tribute to the 300 SL or just a bad mock-up. What we can't leave aside are the specifications of the Panamericana.
300SL's body was made by using aircraft composite technology. This construction comprises of a sprayed layer of aluminum (0.5mm thick) into the mold, reinforced by fiberglass. The body stands on a RHS steel reinforced and powder coated chassis, fitted with an independent suspension.
In 2010, the Panamericana will become available with a new Mercedes V6 engine, the one used on the 350 models. Developing 320 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque at 4,900 rpm, the engine will be mated to a manual six-speed transmission, worldcarfans reported.
The cars will come in only either silver paint with blue accents in the front fenders, or a Black version. Optionally, a white with red stripes paint job can be ordered. As for the interior, the Panamericana will use red leather upholstery and plaid cloth. The instrument panel will be identical to the original 300SL.
