Atelier Valdeig developed a wide body kit for the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (W198).

Atelier Valdeig developed a wide body kit for the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (W198).

The project was originally planned for a replica automaker but in the end it was cancelled. However, Atelier Valdeig continued digitally working on this new look for the 300 SL Roadster and created entirely new side panels.

Bigger wheels can be installed thanks to the new wider fenders, while behind the front wheels there are large air outlets. In addition, the original bulges over the wheel arches have been removed for a cleaner appearance. The car seen here sits on 16-inch Revolution rims with white wall tires, but bigger alloys from Carlsson or wire wheels from muscle cars can be fitted.

The car can be equipped with the original upright headlamps or the round ones mounted on the Gullwing variant. Different types of taillights are available, while the exhaust system can get side pipes.
