Mercedes Concepts Roadster and 300 SL Gullwing Coupe
One French designer has put together design styles based on the Mercedes 300 SL coupe and Roadster model.
Slimane Toubal is a digital and clay design modeler. He is from France and he has a long job history in automotive design. His former employers are Renault, Audi, Citroen, Honda and Toyota. Slimane likes to create concept cars, his last project points on making a modern-day interpretation of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG’s previous model, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Slimane Toubal’s Mercedes-Benz 300 SL design style includes both a coupe and roadster versions of this well-known Mercedes-Benz model.
The latter model received a new hard-top roof instead of the original’s soft-top roof. Hard-top roofs for this roadster became the modern trend as of late, with the new McLaren 12C Spyder, that also makes use of one in a three-piece setup. You can see Slimane Toubal’s concepts of the reworked classic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL in our gallery below.
