Mercedes is planning an R8 competitor that is supposed to come out sometime in 2010. The two seater will be powered by a 6.2 liter V8 mid-engine; it will be a RWD with a new Sport-automatic transmission. The illustration above was done by Schulte-Nextline, which shows what the Mercedes could look like. Auto-Motor-und-Sport also reports that the car will have wing like door, similar to the Gullwing concept I report last month on. So could this be the Gullwing or will there be two very similar cars from Mercedes by 2010? Nobody really knows, but I am sure that this and the 300SL illustration last month is an indication that Mercedes is moving into building a new car that will compete directly against the future R8 from Audi and BMWs Z8.
