An automotive icon turns 60. Experience the history of an exceptional sports car. After its birth in the Mercedes-Benz motorsport workshop the 300 SL went on to overcome even the strongest competitors on the international racing scene. Since then the SL models from Mercedes-Benz have stood for sportiness, style, comfort and innovation.
In its pursoot to tell the rich story of one of its most iconic product line, Mercedes-Benz has released the story lesson video of their celebrated vehicle. The German auto maker is celebrating 60 years for its SL model car. For the occasion, the brand had also released a special exhibition of the SL cars last month:
“No other model embodies sportiness and aesthetic appeal as masterfully as the SL does and has done now for 60 years. The first SL model series produces the same fascination and attraction today as it did in 1952”, says Michael Bock, Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic. “For many of our visitors the SL is a synonym of the Mercedes-Benz brand itself, and we are happy to be able to fulfil an oft-expressed wish of visitors: to show the entire SL family together in one exhibition hall.” [Source]
