I concur, it seems a rather leisurely drive..
the footage was nice. Had to laugh when the rear stepped out and he closed the throttle.

He's certainly not Rudolph, Fangio or Sterling...

probably petrified of the cars value to give it any stick.

Bloody Hell!

Why haven't I seen this before??? It's years old and I've searched for 300SL gullwing stuff on youtube for years... Still some real gems out there on the interwebs hiding from us! :smilebox:

Thanks Thomas, that was awesome.

Suggest people subscribe to his channel - I'm sure the next gullwing vid he posts will be as good as the others. :occasion5:
