The HMC Hidalgo looks nothing like the car it was modeled after, and that is a good thing. The Hidalgo is a redesign of the well-known Mercedes SLK 55 AMG. The contemporary car gets a classic facelift courtesy of Helvetic Motor Company.

The HMC Hidalgo has the same performance specs of the Mercedes SLK 55 AMG, boasting a 5.5-liter V8 pushing out 355 horsepower with 376 lb-ft of torque. The HMC Hidalgo is being produced in a limited run of around six a year. Each one is expected to sell for around $410,000. Start saving now. Stats for Retro Roadster Redesigns Trending: Older & Mild
