THE STORY OF THE SL

  • In 1952, Mercedes-Benz entered the legendary Carrera Panamericana road race across Mexico for the first time and came first and second with a pair of 300 SL Coupés.
  • To pay homage to these cars, the front grille on the new SL has been redesigned with a modern take on its historic predecessor.
  • The new SL is the only vehicle in the Mercedes-Benz range to feature this shape of grille
  • In 1952, the first 300 SL (W 194) won the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race with a spectacular one-two victory
  • The 300 SL (W 198) series-production sports car was revealed at the 1954 International Motor Sports Show in New York. The road-going 300 SL stayed in production until 1963
  • The 300 SL was succeeded by the SL (W 113) affectionately known as ‘Pagoda’ – this model was in production until 1971
  • The following SL – known internally as R 107 – went into production in 1971 and over the next 18 years over 237,287 were sold
  • The SL provided inspiration for the entire Mercedes-Benz sports car family – today encompassing the new SL, SLC and Mercedes-AMG GT
