What is it?
Perfection, probably. German outfitter Mechatronik has been dabbling with old Mercedes-Benzes for over two decades now, and it was with this wonderful creation – dubbed the ‘M-SL’ – that it made its mark.
Indeed, it says as much. “It was impossible to foresee, of course, the success that this concept would bring to the company,” says, um, The Company.
In short, it is a ‘W113’ series Mercedes-Benz SL, quietly and subtly updated with a not-so-subtle V8 from a Nineties Mercedes, and lots of sympathetic tweaks to allow this classic shape to live an entirely new kind of life.
