Sure. Who else should drive such a car in a Soviet movie? ;)


Would be interesting to know the history of this specific cr. How could a Gullwing-Mercedes came into the USSR? :think:

Could it be the cr, which is now located as a decoration-object in the main Mercedes Benz-store in Moscow? I've passed the shop while our trip there in February 2005, and I swear, that there was a Gullwing standing there in the entrance hall. :think:

This car was purchased in 50s of state research center, located in Leningrad, to study the system of direct injection. It was later sold into private hands.In the 80s injection system was broken and 300SL was exchanged for ten years old Audi-100. Later was seen in Moscow in a terrible state.The subsequent fate is unknown.

Interesting background informations. A propos the Mercedes-store in Moscow: they had also an "Adenauer"-300 [W189] as decoration in the showroom.

Disgusting pimp's and drug-dealer's-junk.
Though all this "tuning"-stuff was incredible expensive back then (and pure 80ies taste), nowadays you'll push up the car's value, if you remount this plastic stuff.

Reminds me of the 'Ocelot Supercat' from an episode of The New Statesman.

Yeah.
As you think, it's really the same car: http://www.anamera.com/en/detail/car/319037/index.html ? Or a lie?

Account of this car - which left Russia in the 1990s and went to Germany, now in UK with 636 UXM plates -here.
"The document of ownership placed the 300SL in the Soviet Union during the 1980s, but it had apparently been there for almost its entire life. The 300SL Register noted only that it was completed on 30 July 1956 – there was no information listed about its early owners or subsequent life – but it’s thought that it went straight to Russia, making it surely the only Gullwing to do so.

The first thing Evdokimov did was look up the name of the person on the SL’s document of ownership. “Quickly it became obvious that this guy was indeed a very special gentleman,” he says. “He was an aircraft engineer with multiple awards of the highest order for ­extraordinary achievement.” He seemed to be Alexander Mikulin, who designed Russia’s first liquid-cooled, piston aero engine, as well as the engine for its first jet airliner, the Tupolev Tu-104: “But one thing that didn’t fit – the guy was too old. When I looked up the name, his age made the whole thing lose any sense. “Then I found out that he had a son, and the son was also named Alexander. He was a skilled driver who was often called on to perform stunts in movies."

One theory is that the KGB arranged for it to be imported, and it ended up at a fuel research institute in Leningrad – now St Petersburg. In its history file are notes made much later suggesting that its engine was removed in order to study Mercedes’ innovative fuel-injection system, and replaced with one from a 300 Limousine. By the time it was restored in Germany in the late 1990s and early 2000s, however, the original engine was back with the car, and it seems far more likely that the research institute simply removed the injection system itself.

In 1968 it turned up in Myortvyy Sezon (Dead Season), a moodily shot, black-and-white Russian film ...It’s a typical spy thriller of the time – hepcat soundtrack, lots of smoking, laughable fight sequences – and opens with a warning from a very serious-looking old man about how evil capitalist countries such as the UK and America were working on chemical weapons. By far the best entrance is reserved for the SL, though, which comes roaring through the countryside to the accompaniment of badly dubbed engine noises, then arrives on a beach, where it performs a perfectly executed powerslide around a 1932 Lincoln.
