Factory hard-topOriginal fitted luggageBeautifully restored exampleRegarded as Mercedes Benz's most desirable post-war open Grand TourerFinished in sumptuous Jet Black coachwork with striking Red hide and Anthracite Black Mohair soft top which one of the most desirable combinations. Equipped with two of the most highly sought after period options available, which were the factory demountable hard top and original factory fitted luggage. The original ivory Bakelite steering wheel was replaced by a period correct Nardi of the type offered by Mercedes-Benz as an option to 300SL buyers.Having been acquired by DD Classics this example has undergone a complete restoration and no small detail has been overlooked during this process and our chairman has personally overlooked each step as he purchased his first 300SL Roadster over forty years ago and has rarely been without at least one in his ownership since! He knows what is correct with these iconic cars.The introduction of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was a hugely important moment for Mercedes-Benz and served to further cement the company's position as the market leader in race-bred, performance automobiles. Massively ahead of its time, the 300 SL utilised an innovative space-frame chassis coupled with a highly advanced, fuel-injected engine, the first of its kind fitted to a production car. It was crowned the fastest performance car in the world upon its introduction and could outrun any other car on sale at the time.The car was conceived by American Mercedes-Benz importer Max Hoffman, who believed that a road-legal version of Mercedes-Benz's successful W194 racer would be profitable and that the unique style and performance of such a car would resonate well with his American clients. Mercedes-Benz took Hoffman up on his idea, and so it was only natural that the new 300 SL would premiere at the New York Auto Show in 1954. The 300 SL coupe quickly earned the nickname "Gullwing" for its distinctive roof-hinged doors, and the public fell in love with the car, not only for its breathtaking design but also for its earth-shattering performance.Looking to expand upon his success with the Gullwing coupe, Hoffman thought that a convertible version of the 300 SL would also sell quite well, and the 300 SL Roadster was introduced in May 1957 at the Geneva Motor Show. Built with conventional doors, the new Roadster was a hit with the late 1950s jet set including royalty, actors and socialites. It sold well for a car that cost 32,500DM making it more expensive than its gullwing brother by 13,500DM alone and more than a Ferrari 250GT California Spyder. The new roadster would out-live the 300SL coupe by several years. Described as the gentleman's sports car and today the model is widely regarded as Germany's most desirable post-war open Grand Tourer.Interest in these cars has grown in recent years, a beautifully presented 300SL Roadster of which is a wonderful opportunity to own.
