Swiss carmaker Helvetic Motor Company (HMC) set out to reskin the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG, and finally the fruits of that labor have revealed itself in the form of a vintage inspired vehicle titled Hildago. The gorgeous exterior of this luxury car incorporates classic design traits from the past as well as the new innovations of our present. Underneath the hood you’ll find that the Hildago is powered by the 5.5-liter V8, which puts out 355 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. Of course you won’t be surprised to know that the Hildago is pretty exclusive, due in part to the limited availability of 6 cars per year and the steep price tag of ($410,000). But if you want a high-end blast from the past, that’s the price you’ll just have to pay.
