gull wing car

    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.
