GULLWING EXPERIENCE: Raw, Raspy, Classy & Fast 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing | EP34

Published in Video

Visceral and elegant, this rare 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing checks all the boxes: it's fast, comfortable, good-looking, raw, and very different. Nicole meets up with Robert Webster at his Arizona shop to experience a brisk drive and the nuances of his classic Gullwing, with its hot-rodded 276 horsepower inline 6-cylinder motor, raspy exhaust note, and boldly designed cockpit, uncovering its storied history after encountering several unexpected treasures, including a priceless 1957 Maserati 250S raced by Carroll Shelby. MORE ABOUT ROBERT WEBSTER: A hot-rodder at heart, Robert is the owner of 198 Werks, which specializes in the 300SL platform. Robert graduated from Wyotech and performs engine work in-house. He frequently participates in long-distance rallies, including the Copperstate 1000, offering rally prep for several of its participants and expert mechanical assistance along the route.
