Discover the love of dricing a proven convertible Mercedes classic that is easy to drive and guaranteed to turn heads (especially in this much commented upon colour scheme).

The 300SL is the sl connosieurs' preferred engine over the more thirsty 500SL, saving you money on fuel consumption whilst giving great performance results. In some walks of life it's far more important to appear quietly successful than brazenly rolling in it. And this is where cars such as the Mercedes SL make their mark.

Based on the sort of posh saloon that would've got your neighbours' curtains twitching anyway, it discreetly dials in a dose of youthful vigour by dispensing with rear doors or a B-pillar and has a removable hard top. So you still end up with a Mercedes (seal of approval from the ladies who lunch) but you also get a coupe (guaranteed semblence of virility).

Perhaps the greatest attribue of the SL is the fact that despite those missing rear doors it still has rear seats. This means that you can shoehorn your rugrat inside and no one will be able to tell you've even got one. A sort of smoke-and-mirrors alternative to the elixir of eternal youth. Genius.
