This Mercedes-Benz 540 K is a minimalist revamped model from an original 1938 version. Overall the car holds that vintage feel, but still has a touch of modernism thrown in.

The car looks like it would be worthy of a James Bond movie, with a matte gray finish and enough swag to scare off any enemy. Other additions to the car make it aerodynamic with the ability to cruise along at a decent pace for an extended period of time. The car is set to be debuted at the Concours d'Elegance event, and it is the only one that has been made so it's sure to cause quite a stir!

For a classic car, this revamped version should impress any car collector.
