1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Special Edition abandoned in a garage

A limited edition of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing model was discovered in a garage after being abandoned more than four decades ago.

The car is a 1995 made Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Special Edition, a model which is quite rare as it was part of a special edition, limited to 29 units. Back in the ‘70s, it was one of the best sports cars and today it is regarded as an expensive piece of art, a real four-wheel treasure, coveted by collectors.

The story goes like this: in 1970, Tom Wellmer received a special graduation gift from his parents in the form of a Special Edition Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing

However, after only one year, the transmission failed. Wellmer decided he would fix it later and left it in a Santa Monica garage, where it eventually remained for the next 40 years.

Fortunately for the supercar, it was discovered by classic car restorer Rudi Koniczek who convinced Wellmer to sell it for $2.5 million.

The identity of the new owner is not known but Wellmer demanded that the Gullwing is fully restored to its original condition.
