In 1954, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was unveiled at the International Motor Sports Show in New York - the start of an unparalleled success story. Victories in the 24-hour race at Le Mans and the Carrera Panamericana made it world-famous. It also possessed groundbreaking technology, including the first series-production fuel-injected engine. Its elegant shape and futuristic gullwing doors made it a coveted prize, symbolising exclusivity and freedom. This volume has everything that is important about the legendary sports car: wonderfully aesthetic automotive photography by Rene Staud and archive pictures rich in patina, snapshots of racing successes and famous owners, and interesting facts from the model' s history to the colours of the paintwork.
