The 300 SL of my generation is almost here. Powered by a 571 hp V8 and capable of speeds up to 196 mph, the 2010 Mercedes AMG Gullwing is fantasy on wheels come to life. You can see from the drawings that much of the interior is aircraft-influenced. Brushed aluminum adorns the twin gauges, vents, pedals, and steering wheel. Carbon fiber is everywhere, as expected, and the seats with their extreme side bolsters are available in multiple colors. Pricing should start at €150,000 when the final product is unveiled in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Hit the jump for a full gallery and a close-up of those signature gullwing doors.

Designer Hartmut Sinkwitz said “The proportions should be consistent,” having a lengthy hood with the cab seated upon the rear axle.” The original 1954 Gullwing has become an icon of Mercedes Benz history, and it looks as if the SLS will pay proper homage.

    What’s with the 747 on the wall? Will this be a double-decker gullwing?

    (I kid.)

    I like weird dials, I like Benzes, I like cars from the future paying homage to cars from the past. But mostly, I like manual transmissions, so that little auto/manumatic stick, no matter how plane-like, disappoints. Not like I was going to buy this car anyways, but it’s always sad to see cars continue in this direction.

  3. Good point Biotech. The big question is what will happen to the manual transmission as we know it when electric motors begin to prevail? CVTs for everyone? Booooo!
