Robert Furtak, from Poland, describes himself as a ‘Mercedes Obsessive’.
When in 1999, Mercedes-McLaren launched their new prototype, Robert loved the car so much, he purchased a mini die-cast model of the car & with a set of caliers, then proceeded to transform his old 1980’s Mercedes model to the new ‘Prototype Vision SLR’ model as exhibited.
The transformation took Robert just 2 years, quicker in fact than it took Mercedes to launch the model. Robert hand beat & made all the parts by hand & with the help of his neighbours, completed his version before Mercedes launched their road-legal one.
The Mercedes ‘Vision SLR’, only available on order, costs around £385,000.00.
