A Gaggle Of Gullwings

Gullwings On Parade

Gullwings On Parade

There are only a few cars in history that have become icons – cars that tilted the world of automotive design in new and unexpected ways. The Jaguar XK-E was one. The Corvette Sting Ray was another. And, of course, the silver “James Bond” Aston Martin DB5.

But before any of them came the Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing, a car that stunned the post-war automotive world. It was unlike anything ever seen before. It was low and sleek. It spoke of power and speed. And money.

Come inside to read more about an event that brought together 37 Gullwing coupes and and 23 of their roadster brethren in Southern California last weekend. Lots of pictures there too!
