Mercedes 300SL Crushed

If you think a clever way to have yourself a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing without such a huge price tag would be to get one made yourself you would be wrong.

 

A copy or replica of its 300SL Gullwing was seized by German customs recently and destroyed. A German company had produced the replica in breach of Mercedes rights as they had copyright protection on the shape of the car.

 

Extremely unhappy, Mercedes stripped the car down and crushed it!
