Video: A million-dollar car on the salt

Submitted by on November 17, 2013

Salt Lake 300SL GullwingThere is simultaneously everything wrong, and everything right about seeing a million dollar collectable being raced across metal-eating salt. This video tells why.

“You only live once and you can’t take it with you” touts Bob Sirna, owner of this extensively modified 300SL on the reasons behind his decision to chop up, rebuild and race a classic like the Mercedes Gullwing to within an inch of it’s life. A self-confessed sufferer of Salt-fever, the charismatic racing addict lives by the motto “enjoy your toys”, and has a fantastic way of convincing the rest of us to the same, too.
