Beschreibung

Silber Metallic with Red hide
Subtly retrofitted air conditioning
Superb driving example
The ultimate post-war Mercedes

At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a new version of the celebrated 300 SL wearing open coachwork: the 300 SL Roadster. Production started in May of ’57 and the new roadster had a list price of 32,500DM, 13,500DM more expensive than its Gullwing brother. Such a greater price tag suggested the importance of this car when new, and can only be described as the gentleman’s sports car

Finished in the period appropriate colour combination of Silber Metallic with Red leather, it is possibly finished in the most desirable and certainly the most iconic blend of colours for a 300SL.

The cars indisputable elegance stands it in place as one of the most beautiful cars in automotive history, and not least in Mercedes-Benz history, it is a treat to see one, and an honour to drive such a magnificent machine. We can confirm that the car drives beautifully, engaging all gears faultlessly and building up momentum with ease. The inline six engine sings a beautiful note, placing it as the sports car of the era. Our 300SL is in sensational condition, but remains an extremely practical example and ready for use as a touring companion. It also benefits from elegantly retrofitted air-conditioning system, vastly upping the usability of the timeless roadster whilst giving a driving experience far beyond its years can get a rather hot in the cockpit.

Today, the 300 SL Roadster still carries with it an indelible aura of speed, power, and sophisticated style. Fast enough for the sports car lover, and comfortable enough for those who demand some luxury, it has remained one of the most admired automobiles in the world for nearly 60 years. Our car offered here, in its outstanding choice of colours, makes it one of the most attractive examples still on the road.
