Mercedes Gullwing at Salon Prive'

Posted on 3 October 2016

Following a 3 year major nut and bolt restoration, this stunning Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing made its debut at the 2016 Salon Prive' Concours d'Elegance at Blenheim Palace. It was a real showstopper, standing alongside some equally dazzling cars in the beautiful setting of the Palace grounds. Wayne and Simon drove the car, it's first major outing since completion, on the Tour d'Elegance round the Cotswolds countryside, in a convoy of around 30 cars before arriving at Blenheim without missing a beat. See here for highlights of the tour (video courtesy of CotwoldsTV).

The delighted owners flew in from Canada just in time to see and drive the car during the Concours Day parade and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of this special event. The Gullwing is now having some finishing touches put to it before being shipped to its new home in Canada.
