GWA pays tribute to La Carrera Panamericana with 300SL/R and 340M/C

Gullwing America has prepared two commemorative cars to celebrate La Carrera Panamericana.

The first one is a Mercedes 300 SL/R powered by a new M-156 V8 6.3-liter engine connected to a new gearbox. The braking system has also been modified and comes with larger calipers. The vehicle features 19-inch monoblock retro-inspired wheels and comes with racing seats and a roll bar.

The Ferrari 340 M/C retains its F116C-V12 5.5-liter engine but adopts a new injection system and a custom clutch. In addition, new racing mufflers and headers have been fitted, along with deep concave staggered mesh-type wheels, racing seats and necessary safety equipment.

Both vehicles will be carried in a Mercedes-Benz-branded transporter that will take them to F1 races and car shows around the world.
