Mercedes Classic visited the MB design studios and asked Peter Pfeiffer, the former design boss at Mercedes, what a retro-styled or facelifted SL from the past would look like today. Pfeiffer selected five of his most talented designers and gave them three weeks to come up with some designs. The designers were:

Uli Baur (Germany)
Winny Camacho (Philippines)
Mark Fetherston (England)
Volker Leutz (Germany)
Gabriel Nemeth (Hungary)


My favorite one is Volker Leutz's vision of what a W113 "Pagoda" SL would look like today. Damn this thing is hot.


Below are the other designs (see scans). Worth checking out.

I like the Baur R107. It looks much better than the R230.
