Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

    The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was the only instance to be found of the SL-Class grand tourer. It was also the fastest production car in its time. It debuted as a two-seat coupe in 1954 with its distinct gull wing doors and was later offered to the public as an open roadster. Made by Daimler-Benz AG, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL featured a direct fuel injection model that was inspired by the company’s successful, yet less powerful W194, an overhead, carbureted cam straight 6 1952 racer.

    Max Hoffman was the one to suggest a toned-down Grand Prix car that was geared toward performance enthusiasts during the postwar market in America. Mercedes decided to comply with the request and made the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. It was introduced at the New York Auto Show in 1954. Successful right away and considered iconic to this very day, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was second to none with its first ever product of injected fuel, its distinctive doors and its world-class speed. The roadster was available from 1957 to 1963.

    A slightly heavier yet smaller, cheaper and less luxurious 1.9-liter roadster made the scene in 1955 and was called the 190 SL. Both the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and the 190 SL prefaced the production of the 230 SL. To this day, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is regarded as one of the most beautiful and high-performance classic cars, never losing its gusto even after all of the decades that have passed.

    Motorcycles are so much more than something that gets to you a place and back home again like so many cars and trucks.

They should be treated with reverence, and that is exactly what the Confederate FA-13 Combat Bomber Motorcycle does.


    Gotham Project Superyacht

    The Gotham Project Superyacht has very clearly taken its inspiration from the mask worn by Batman with its iconic lines and curves. Created by the designer Ivan Erdevicki of the Dutch-owned Icon Yachts brand, this yacht is every bit as memorable and unique as Batman himself. It is a yacht that came about from not only the mind of Erevicki but from Van Oossanen Naval Architects and a broker named Harry Bristow-Holmes. It measures 150 feet long and has been given a luxurious black color to match the hue of Batman’s mask. Its length is such that it will not go unnoticed as it sails the seas, and its design is one that will certainly be noticed and recognized by anyone that the Gotham Project Superyacht passes by.
