What makes the 300SL Gullwing worth over 1 million dollars?

Do you have 1 million dollars? Yeah. I don’t either, but if I did I would definitely buy this car! When I say “car” you‘re not just buying a car. you’re buying an icon, a legend, a piece of automotive history! A car that changed the world of cars! The Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing! If you don’t recognize this car, hopefully after reading this you will, because it’s extraordinary! It was the 50s. Mercedes-Benz made a new race car, the W194. Oh, it won, it won a lot! It was so good in fact that American importer Max Hoffman convinced Mercedes to make a road version of this race car. Mercedes made a roadster and a coupe, the coupe known as the gullwing is the best of them all! The 300SL‘s styling was incredible, and the doors, the doors were unlike any car door before it! That‘s right, the 300SL was the first ever car to have Gullwing doors. The Bricklin, the Delorean, the Mangusta, the Huayra, and many more cars have gullwing doors and it was all because of this road going race car! The performance was amazing too! The 300SL was the first passenger car to have fuel injection, direct injection! This car was so far ahead of it’s time! Decades ahead! The 300SL had a straight six making 240hp, it could go over 140mph, in the 1950s! The 300SL was the fastest production car of it‘s time! The 300 (sport light) was better than any Ferrari at the time. The 300SL is an engineering marvel, that had many firsts in the industry. The Gullwing is the rarest of all the 300SLs! So why is the 300SL Gullwing worth over 1 million dollars? Because it shaped the car world forever. The 300SL Gullwing might just be the greatest classic car ever!
