Mercedes-Benz W198 (aka 300SL) — the first sports car from Mercedes-Benz in the post-war period. It was first introduced in 1954 in New York as a street version of the W194 racing car. At first, the 300SL was produced in a two-seat coupe body with unique "Gull Wing" doors, but in 1957 an open version was released — a roadster.
