To the cognoscenti, the 300 SL Gullwing Mercedes is a classic car that is as desirable today as it was when introduced in the 1950s. Capable of speeds in excess of 130 miles per hour, the SL represented a significant technological advance in both design and engineering. With its long hood, swing up doors and fuel injected inline six, it had few equals from that era. Of the 867 SL coupes built in 1955, few remain in existence today.
