The 1959 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster, while beautiful to look at, was also the fastest production car of its day. First launched in 1954 in New York as a two-seater sports touring car with wildly distinctive Gullwing doors, the 300SL was a direct derivative of the company’s highly successful racecar, the W194. At the time, Max Hoffman, the largest importer of Mercedes Benz to America, believed that a toned-down version of the racecar would be a great way to boost interest with affluent Americans and recommended a car that would become the 300SL Roadster. Hoffman was right! The 300SL Roadster would go on to become one of the most sought-after Mercedes sports cars ever produced. Little did he know that decades later the car would continue to command attention around every corner. If you’re the owner of a 1959 Mercedes 300SL Roadster, you understand the draw of this beautiful car. If you’re thinking about selling, you’ve come to the right place. While this can be a tough decision, the Alex Manos team is ready to help you take the next steps.
