The 2009 300 SL Panamerica is a design created by Arturo Alonso of Gullwing-America. The car is based on a classic 300 SL reproduction by Hooper and Co's Gullwing-AG in Germany.

The body of the Gullwing-America 300 SL Panamerica is constructed with the use of aerospace derived composite technology. This construction process uses a thin (0.5 mm) sprayed layer of aluminium which is applied to the mold first, then over this is several layers of fibre glass cloth and resin. The result is a body which has the genuine look and feel of aluminium, but the strength and longevity of fibreglass. In the event of major body damage. Complete or part panels can be manufactured and bonded back onto the body shell to return it to its original condition. This
process is considerably cheaper and easier than traditional metal bodies.

The chassis of the Gullwing-America 300 SL Panamerica consists of a reinforced and powder coated box-section frame which follows closely to the original design but has been developed to be stronger and afford greater resistance against twisting and distortion. The chassis is has independent suspension with adjustable coil over shock absorbers and AMG disk brakes.

Powering the 300 SL Panamerica is a naturally aspirated, Mercedes-Benz sourced, 5.5 litre V8 which produces 370 hp @ 5,400 rpm and 530 Nm of torque @ 5,400 rpm. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
