Mercedes SLS AMG Panamericana Unveiled

The Gullwing-America team had just revealed their latest contraption, the work of Texas tuner Arturo Alonso, the company’s chief engineer. According to the company, the design of the 2010 Mercedes SLS AMG Panamericana body package aims to revive the retro look of the Gullwing 300SL.

It appears that some of the design elements that transform the Mercedes SLS AMG Panamericana into the Gullwing 300SL of the 21st century include clean front radiator grille and the ribs on the hood and fenders.

The parts that form the recently revealed body kit are made from Hybrid Aluminum and carbon fiber, and consist of two side vents, a set of chrome details which includes a grille frame, new oval dual Xenon headlights, a set of 19 and 20 inch GWA wheels and a sport tuned muffler system.

Inside, the Mercedes SLS AMG Panamericana is basically left untouched, except for the Alcantara center piece of the seats and the brushed aluminum door sills, emblazoned with the Panamericana logo.

Though Gullwing America previously designed a much-liked updated version of the Gullwing with a 370 horsepower, 5.5-liter V8 engine, disappointing or not, this new kit is not meant to boost the power of the new Gullwing. Still, it offers the option of the legendary racing stripes on the front fenders. The exterior color can also be customized on request.

Pricing and availability for this body package, however, will be revealed at a later date, and Gullwing-America says that it will be manufactured in Germany as soon as they receive a delivery of OEM parts.
