There’s the Mercedes-Benz Unimog U1300L camper, and then this extremely rare Boschert B300 Gullwing. Only a handful of these examples are known to exist, based on the Mercedes 300CE, which was modified with the front end from an R129-generation SL.
This required heavy modifications to the vehicle’s structure, including bringing the C-pillar forward by around 25 centimeters and the sills strengthened to accept wild 1.66-meter-wide gullwing doors that provided access to the rear seats. The front seats were sourced from the R129 SL, while the 3.2L inline-six engine was fitted with twin turbochargers, resulting in a power output of 283 horsepower. It’s headed to an RM Sotheby’s auction in November and expected to fetch $300,000+ USD.
