German restomodder Mechatronik has unveiled the “Project 107,” its contemporary take on the classic Mercedes-Benz SL from the 1970s and ’80s.

This R/C107-generation Merc‘ is going to be treated by Mechatronik’s New-Tech division, which gives classics such as this a new lease of life with interior and exterior updates, as well as a host of mechanical and engine updates bringing the car into the 21st century. For now, Mechatronik has only supplied a set of prototype images that disguise the car, leaving a lot to the imagination.


As TopGear reports, we could expect the “Project 107” to be fitted with one of Mechatronik’s favorite go-to engines, such as a 5.5-liter AMG V8 or a 4.3-liter V8. Mechatronik is promising a lot with the new model, saying that it “came to the conclusion to raise the bar” and that “the next level is just around the corner.”

An official press release and images will follow later this year. Take a look at the Mechatronik “Project 107” in the gallery above, and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for updates as news unfolds.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, an unmodified Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX is currently up for auction.
