A German craftsman has hand-carved a life-sized replica of the classic 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing vehicle. The model is made entirely of wood and features intricate details such as the tires, steering wheel, and even the handbrake. Furthermore, the famous winged doors can be raised and opened, just like the real car.

Although the model doesn’t run, it has maintained the original car’s exact sizes and details, which makes it stunning to look at from any angle. The wooden Mercedes-Benz was listed on eBay recently by a seller from Duisberg, Germany, and had an asking price of €5,850. Last checked, it appears that it may have already been sold.
