Mercedes SL 300 Gullwing The 300SL is a masterpiece in terms of automobile sculpture. It
stands out brilliantly from all the clichés of postwar style, even
the much-plagiarized Italian school, with its "gullwing" doors
and its unique Teutonic interpretation of hippie, organic forms.
In a tight race, the 300SL may take first position in terms of
elegance and then clobber all rivals.  The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is a two-seat sports automobile that
Mercedes-Benz produced as a gullwinged coupe (1954–1957)
and a roadster (1957–1963). It was based on the company's
W194 racer from 1952, which used mechanical direct fuel
injection, which increased the output of the three-liter
overhead camshaft straight-six engine by over 50%. It was a
sports car racing champion and the quickest production car of
its day, capable of attaining speeds of up to 263 km/h.
The 300SL is the embodiment of prophecy. It's a trend-setter, a
style-setter, and a design concept that will undoubtedly have a
long-term impact on the global automobile industry. And
aesthetics is the least of the 300SL's industry-shocking
features. The 300SL was the first car to use gasoline fuel
injection (FI), which gave the internal combustion engine a
new lease on life and likely put off the introduction of gas
turbines for years.
You know you're in a 300SL when you're sat in one. You've been
nearly encased. You should feel like you're a part of the vehicle.
The visibility is excellent. A large tachometer and a large
speedometer are located directly ahead and just below eye
level. There are other other instruments and controls to learn,
and they require some time.
