The Mercedes-Benz SLK was introduced in 1996 and while it may have been a successful small roadster, it wasn’t half the sports car that the Porsche Boxster was. Then again, it did have that nifty retractable hardtop roof. Still, it’ll hardly go down as one of Mercedes’ most iconic vehicles in the same way as, say, the gorgeous 300SL Gullwing.
Well, what if someone decided to combine the ordinary first-gen SLK with the legendary Gullwing? Crossley & Webb, a luxury dealership in Cape Town, South Africa did just that, and it’s currently for sale. Dubbed the Gullwing Tribute, it has the glorious lines of the Gullwing but is based on the more modern underpinnings of a 2001 SLK.
