Check out the incredible video here.
I have had the fortune of having seen almost two dozen Gullwings at various car shows. But I've only seen one on the road. A happy gray-haired couple were in a beautiful black one on the freeway about ten miles from home. I really need to track them down and try to get a ride.
Here is a 300SLR that raced in the 1955 Mille Miglia. I took this shot when I visited the Mulhouse museum in Alsace in 2005. Does anyone know what that dark gray patch on the hood/bonnet is for?
