Redesigned in 1957, the Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster was not only technologically and functionally advanced, but breathtakingly beautiful and ultra-exclusive. In fact, while the 300SL was first introduced as a Gullwing Coupe, when news of the new 300SL Roadster spread, sales of the Gullwing started to slow. Today, the 1960 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster and other 300SL Roadsters from 1957 to 1963 is an icon of automotive engineering and design. Only 1,858 units would be produced, with only 249 of those being 1960 Mercedes Roadsters; making these some of the lowest production Mercedes classics available in the classic car marketplace today. It is important to remember that these cars were driven hard when they were young they are sports cars after all. Some have been crashed, repaired, crashed and repaired again. Always check the car for accident damage. Hood fit, door fit and trunk-lid fit can be indicators. Also check the tubular chassis for repairs on a lift.
