The striking new face end evokes fond memories for roadster enthusiasts. The steeply pitched radiator grille pays elegant homage to the 300 SL Panamericana. The back of the car features integrated tailpipe trims and a diffusor for a little bit of extra attitude. The SL's timeless profile exudes elegance in its purest guise.
The SL offers a spacious interior and exquisite features with top quality leathers combined with wood or aluminium finishes.
The new multifunction sports steering wheel has gearshift paddles hidden behind it so your hands never have to leave the wheel and sports seats’ high side bolsters to hold you comfortably in place.

The 300 SL (W 194) was the first newly-designed Mercedes-Benz racing car after the Second World War to be called SL (Super Light).
The newly-developed spaceframe guaranteed a lightweight design and maximum torsional stiffness, but it also made conventional doors impossible. The solution was upward-opening doors. The "Gullwing" was born. In 1954, the 300 SL "Gullwing" (W 198) continued the success story.
