There aren’t many thing as captivating as a classic car modified with pure class and yet projecting oodles of period correct charm. However, this is exactly what the car in the video below is. Belonging to Michael Potiker, this Mercedes Benz 190SL looks all glorious and tempting in its low-cut period correct form. The classic icon has got some custom touches as Michael transformed his car into a Southern California-style racer. The modifications are not just gorgeous, but are also an perfect ode to the then original Rennsport kit that Mercedes Benz offered to its customers back in the day. The owners could order this kit separately and installed them themselves.
