Gullwing America SLS Panamericana

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

With the release of flagship car Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in Frankfurt, the team of Gullwing-America wasted no time in starting work to design a body package to give the car a retro appearance for it to look more like the Gullwing 300SL.

Arturo Alonso, GWA chief engineer, came up with the idea to turn it into a 300SL from the 21 century. They removed the clean grille, the ribs on the hood and fenders and other details.

The extremely detailed "Panamericana" conversion kit is composed of seven body parts, which are made from Hybrid Aluminum and carbon fiber.

The kit also has two side vents, a set of chrome details which includes a grille frame, new oval dual Xenon headlights, their set of GWA wheels which come staggered in 19 and 20 and a sport tuned muffler system.

The interior is almost unchanged except for the optional Alcantara center piece insert for the seats with special contrast stitching to resemble a plaid design of the past. It has a set of illuminated brushed Aluminum door sills that light up with the engraving Panamericana logo, as the doors are opened.

The legendary racing stripes on the front fenders are optional and can be designed in any combination that the buyer desires.

This life-like rendering shows Alonso's favorite combination, white with red stripes and red interior, which he considers to be a classic. GWA is the sole distributor of these parts that will be made in Germany.
