First presented to the public at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, the 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster was designed to effectively replace the Gullwing Coupe that had been previously retired and would continue its run until February 1963. Boasting a larger price tag than the outgoing Coupe, the 300SL Roadster captivated audiences with a wealth of popular changes. Larger front fenders, European-style headlights, a more round windscreen, a smaller front grille and beautiful chrome accent strips running down the side of the car were just a few of the upgrades that boosted the price of this sports car to more than $11,000. To put this price into perspective, the average cost of a car in 1957 was just over $2,700.00. The Roadster models also featured some wonderful additional options, which if found on a car today, can raise the value. Some of these options include the original hardtop, Rudge wheels and fitted luggage, which was designed specifically to work with the curvature of the rear compartment. In total, only 1,858 units of the 300SL Roadster would be produced, of those 554 would be 1957 model-year examples.
