The Gullwing

This is a shocking, beautiful car. The Gullwing Mercedes was one of the most successful race cars of all time. Picasso had one, even though he didn’t have a license, because it was so beautiful. Sir Stirling Moss made one of the greatest drives in history at the 1955 Mille Miglia in an open-topped version of this car. The man in this video cherishes his Mercedes, and I can see why. I loved these as a child just like he did. Maybe he’ll pass his along to me.

God in heaven, listen to that engine.
