2000 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing w198 coupe For Sale

Mercedes 300SL Gullwing

The Mercedes-Benz 300SL came about in the wake of the company's Le Mans and Carrera Panamericana victories in 1952. ... Officially known as the 300SL Coupé, the Gullwing survived until 1957, with 1400 built before the Roadster replaced it

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (chassis code W 198) was a two-seat sports car produced by Mercedes-Benz as a gullwinged coupe (1954-1957) and roadster (1957-1963).[2] It was based on the company's 1952 racer, the W194, with mechanical direct fuel-injection which boosted power almost 50% on its 3-litre overhead camshaft straight-6 engine.[3] Capable of reaching a top speed of up to 263 km/ h (163 mph), it was both a sports car racing champion[4] and the fastest production car of its time.[3]

The 300 SL was inspired by Max Hoffman, Mercedes-Benz's authorized United States importer at the time, who correctly perceived a large American market for such a car. The company introduced the 300 SL in February 1954 at the International Motor Sports Show in New York instead of in Europe in order to get it into U. S. buyers' hands sooner.

SL is the short form for "super-light" in German Mercedes' first use of the designation, referring to the car's racing-bred light tubular frame construction.

The 300 SL was voted the "sports car of the century" in 1999.
