Feast Your Eyes On S-Klub’s Upcoming Slammed Mercedes-Benz Speedster Build

While there’s no denying the careful touch and attention to detail required in bringing a classic back to its former glory, still more elusive is the ability to take such a car’s design and run with it in a radical new direction. But S-Klub isn’t an outfit bound by tradition. On the contrary — as you’ll find with this Mercedes-Benz 300SL, they like to make their own rules.

Those who are acquainted with the Los Angeles-based restoration specialist will be all too familiar with the slammed speedster aesthetic; it’s a formula that founder John Sarkisyan has used before in other Benzes and a Porsche 550 spyder SEMA build. This time around, however, Sarkisyan has envisioned his low-slung SL with a removable roof, giving it a chop-top profile that flows perfectly into the shortened windscreen. And that’s not all; elsewhere, you’ll find a carbon fiber front bumper, widened wheel arches, as well as a set of side pipes. There are no details yet regarding the drivetrain, but the last S-Klub 300SL build was based on a 2002 SLK 32 AMG with a supercharged AMG V6 engine. In other words, chances are good that it’ll have the performance to back its stunning bodywork.
