Scrap Metal Mercedes 300 SLR Replicas by Giants of Steel

Armin Ciesielski, Peter Brakel and Walter Willer working at German company Giganten aus Stahl (Giants of Steel) recreate this full-scale replica of Mercedes-Benz 300SL "Gullwing" out of 10,000 scrap metal pieces, and can’t be driven.

"The Uhlenhaut is a really special Mercedes and we wanted to make a replica."

"It took me and my friends seven months of hard work to perfect and we used more than 10,000 pieces of metal."

"The car was a very difficult model to make because of all the intricate details and we made the engine look identical to the original. It weighs nearly 1,000kg."

In addition to the Gullwing, there are other replicas such as a classic Porsche Spyder and pre-war Auto Union grand prix racer.
