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
This 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is a factory Rudge wheel example that was born in DB157 Beige. It currently wears aging but still very presentable ruby red paint. Other than the paint, this car is all original. It comes with 40 years of records and it's factory tool kit. It was also special ordered with the 3.64 rear axle ratio from the factory. It's had just three owners from new and has spent most of it's life in California. According to Paul Russell and Co, this is one of the best driving Gullwings they've ever driven. An absolutely original car that's nothing but honest for only $1,495,000.
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

Let's face facts: 300SL Gullwings and Roadsters have skyrocked in price over the last few years, so if you're going to plunk your money down to own one, make sure it's got a pedigree like this one. This spectacular Roadster has had just two owners for 95% of it's life and has gone a mere 77,000 original miles. It has its orignal, matching numbers engine, is still in its original colors, has all of it's original books, tools, jack, spare, radio... etc. Best of all, all of these facts are supremely well documented with copious receipts going back to virtually new. Over the years, expert servicing has been performed by 300SL luminaries Jerry Hjeltness, Steve Marx and Paul Russell. It doesn't get better than that. Price is SOLD
