Confirmed: World-Famous Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing ‘Rubirosa’

Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing

Among the many star cars set to be showcased at Lake Tegernsee this July, the latest entry has true superstar quality.

Exihibited by German engineering house and international award-winning 300 SL restoration specialists, HK-Engineering, the ‘Rubirosa’ Gullwing is very much a car that tells a story.

The 87th 300 SL ever built, international man of mystery, Porfirio Rubirosa bought the car in 1955 from Wiesbaden, from where it was transferred to his home in Paris. Believed by many to have been Ian Fleming’s inspiration for James Bond, Rubirosa owned the car until his death in 1965.
