The car that reestablished Mercedes-Benz as a formidable power in sportscar racing after World War 2 was the exotic 300 SL. It started out as a thoroughbred road racing car in 1952 and ended its era as an extremely fast convertible for the very wealthy in 1963. The 300 SL made an impressive impact on car enthusiasts everywhere, so much so that there has been an SL model in the Mercedes range ever since. Although all succeeding Mercedes SL models are sporty, special and much loved, not one of them was able to live up to its famous ancestor in terms of originality, styling and extreme engineering. It's time that RitzSite takes you on a tour to show you this wonderful sportscar icon.
