1960 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster (LHD)
- Factory hard-top
- Original fitted luggage
- Beautifully restored example
- Regarded as Mercedes Benz’s most desirable post-war open Grand Tourer
Finished 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.
Interest in these cars has grown in recent years, a beautifully presented 300SL Roadster of which is a wonderful opportunity to own. Look no further!
