Since the motor car began, Mercedes-Benz have always been known for the quality of their product. No question. On a number of occasions they have also produced some outstandingly fast sports and racing cars.

Witness the pre-Second World War 500s and the Grand Prix cars. Postwar the company recovered with a series of excellent but hardly sporting production cars. But as usual they knew what they were doing. Experimentation on the race track told the world something was afoot. No one quite expected the 300SL.

Here was a genuine production sports coupe with a space frame chassis, gull-wing doors, fuel injection straight six engine and glorious looks of a timeless style, much of it taken directly from the sports-racing cars and considerable speed to boot. Compared to its showroom floor competition, it was a winner instantly.

Hardback in generally very good condition with good dust jacket.
