What we’ve got here is a stunning design concept for a modern successor of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing.

It is the work of Matthias Botcher, a transport designer from Stuttgart, Germany, and was completed as a bachelor’s thesis. He even made a scale model the project and gave it the SL|PURE name.

The concept has probably been designed to adopt a self-driving system, as it has no windscreen or side windows. The only transparent panel is on the central part of the roof.

Easily notable are the references to the classic 300 SL Gullwing – with its short rear overhang, massive fenders and low roofline.
