Selling A 1954 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster
Conceived initially as a purpose-built racing sports car, the 1954 Mercedes Benz 300SL is a beautiful example of Mercedes styling and engineering at the time. In 1952, the coupe notched an impressive record of success in the year’s major races, taking the top three places on the podium at the Gran Prix in Bern and a one-two finish in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. While there were initially no plans to move the Mercedes 300SL into production, the official importer of Mercedes-Benz into America campaigned tirelessly for a sports car to offer his elite clientele, and the 300 SL fit the bill perfectly. Officially announced to the public at the 1954 International Motor Sports Show in New York, the SL’s flat, graceful body quickly became an iconic design in the automotive word. In fact, the Mercedes 300SL was dubbed “Sports Car of the Century” in 1999.
