Iconic: The Mercedes 300 SLR 'Uhlenhaut Coupe' recreated from scrap metal
With a tested top speed of 180mph, the Mercedes 300 SLR 'Uhlenhaut Coupe' would have been the world's fastest car if it was put into production in 1955.
However, at the time executives deemed it too fast for the public, and just two prototypes still exist, both of which are displayed at the company's museum in Germany.
German friends Armin Ciesielski, Peter Brakel and Walter Willer decided to recreate the greatest car ever scrapped out of scrap.
The trio, who work at Giganten aus Stahl which translates to Giants of Steel, meticulously sourced thousands of pieces of metal for their recycled homage.
