The brown wheels really set it apart from the usual 300 SL.

Beautiful, but I prefer the gullwing if I'm going to spend big money on an SL like that.

May be a buyer's market soon.

Whilst the Gullwing looks fabulous, it's actually a PITA to get in and out of!

Stick: Did you "tilt" the steering wheel? Should make it easier!
