At Brabus, it’s not just about giving Mercedes-Benz vehicles extra power. The famous aftermarket tuner recently restored four classic Mercedes cars. The units include the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, the Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet and the Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda.
The cars received a six-star restoration process … Just because Brabus apparently won’t be satisfied with just five stars.
Here is a brief look at the latest work in the Brabus classic car division:
Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing
Around 4,500 hours were spent to restore the 300 SL Gullwing to its original condition. The classic Mercedes-Benz got a baby blue paintwork and a cream-colored interior. Brabus paid so much attention to the rebuilding of the car’s engine and interior that only authentic Mercedes parts were used.
Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster
The convertible finally looked new when Brabus gave it a dark exterior and black hood with contrasting tan leather finishes and a white steering wheel in the cabin. All interior elements have either been repaired or replaced using only genuine Mercedes parts as used during the car’s production period.
Mercedes-Benz 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet
After 2,500 hours of work, the 280 SE 3.5 Convertible took a blast from the past by making it look like it used to be when it first came out of the Mercedes factory. The car is highlighted by its blue paintwork, contrasting white soft top and brown interior. Opening the bonnet and looking into the base reveals authentic Mercedes parts.
Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda
This rare classic Mercedes-Benz Pagoda has a cream-colored exterior, while the top and seat covers are green. The controls, the steering wheel, the instrument cluster and the foot pedals of the car have been accented in black.
Buying these classic Mercedes cars will cost you around $ 370,000 for the Pagoda, $ 740,000 for the Cabriolets, and a whopping $ 2.3 million for the legendary 300 SL Gullwing.
