Did you know this dreamcar was designed as the "racecar of the 20th century" ?
Low weight and low aerodynamic drag made the 300SL-C fast enough to be competitive in endurance races.
The car has a tubular frame with an attached (not self-supporting) body. The 6 cylinder engine (2996 cc) is longitudinally mounted at the front and drives the rear wheels.
The maximum speed of the 300 SL is 260 km per hour (160 mph)....!
The car we are very proud to present you, was new delivered in the USA.
A ten years ago, it underwent a high level complete body restoration in Australia. After this restoration, the car came to Europe, to Germany, were the technical part of the restoration was done, with the well known precision, by Kienle Automobiltechnik.
A lot of technical upgrades were done to the car in order to offer the owner even more driving confort.
After restoration (including engine, gearbox...) this matching number beauty only drove 7500 km.
Plenty of pictures relating the restoration and a complete list of the realised works and upgrades (e.g. airco ...) are available.
Dream car for classic car lovers !
