Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1957 300 SL Roadster LHD The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is one of the finest and most influential post-war sports cars ever built. Originally conceived in 1954 as a coupe, with its iconic ‘Gullwing’ doors, it was followed by the roadster in 1957, which, like its predecessor, was developed as a road going version of Mercedes’ successful W194 racer. As with many European manufacturers, the market in North America was particularly important to Mercedes and the roadster was largely built on the advice of New York based importer Max Hoffman who saw the strong sales potential in the US for a convertible version of the popular Gullwing. Aside from the obvious external design change in eliminating the roof, the roadster benefitted from a number of technical improvements over the coupe including a lower sill line, which improved access to the cabin, and a redesigned rear suspension set up, which significantly improved handling. Performance was further enhanced with a higher compression engine and the adoption of the competition camshafts initially used in the NSL Gullwing race cars. The roadster also received, as standard, climate control, leather seats

Selling Agent Mercedes Benz, Los Angeles The Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing is one of only a few iconic vehicles that has sustained cultural, artistic, and performance importance for over six decades. Originally released in 1954 with production culminating in 1957, 1,400 cars were produced and delivered to a worldwide audience eager to own one of the finest road-going sports cars ever assembled for public use. The automotive press heralded the 300SL as a triumph of engineering and design. Delivered with production fuel-injection (first of it’s kind), and achieving the world's fastest top speed, the 300 SL (S-Sport, L-Light) confirmed M
1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster s/n 198.042.7500568 Fire Engine Red with Tan Leather Interior The 300SL was one of the most exotic cars available when it was new. Directly descended from racing cars, and chock full of innovative features, they were fast, beautiful, and expensive. Arguably the first 'supercar' ever (others claim that honor should be bestowed upon the Lamborghini Miura), the 300SL has been described as the McLaren F1 of its day. Thanks to Mercedes' development work during World War II in aircraft engines, the300SL became the first production car to feature fuel injection (directly injected into the cylinders no less), and the light but strong spaceframe necessitated the now legendary and often copied upwards opening doors on the closed variant of the car. The result was a stunningly beautiful but also functional car that was, depending on gearing, the fastest production car in the world. Surrounded by separate frame carbureted contemporaries, the SL was truly a glimpse of the future and remains today a very special car indeed. Its appeal is timeless and consequently, 300SLs have remained 'blue-chip' collector cars that are always in demand and perhaps even cultural
