At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a new version of the celebrated 300 SL wearing open coachwork: the 300 SL Roadster. Production started in May of ’57 and the new roadster had a list price of 32,500 DM, 13,500 DM more expensive than its Gullwing brother. Such a greater price tag suggested the importance of this car when new.

No expense has been spared when maintaining this fabulous 300 SL and this is evident in how the car is presented today. Finished in the period appropriate colour combination of Glasurit Silver Metallic with Red leather, it is possibly finished in the most desirable blend of colours for a 300 SL Roadster.

This magnificent roadster comes complete with a biblical service history which records every penny spent to maintain it to the high standard it is in today. Buy one of the very best Marque specialists and restorers of 300 SL’s. A detailed list of parts and works carried out has been preserved, enabling us to confirm its been in the same family ownership since September 1990 with no expense spared.

This extraordinary, early example roadster is Mille Miglia eligible and complete with its original tool kit, wheel jack, owners manual, and spare keys.

Today, the 300 SL Roadster still carries with it an indelible aura of speed, power, and sophisticated style. Fast enough for the sports car lover, and comfortable enough for those who demand some luxury, it has remained one of the most admired automobiles in the world for nearly 60 years.

Our car offered here, in its outstanding choice of colours, makes it one of the most attractive examples still on the road.
