The Mercedes 300SL is a long time Silodrome favourite, it’s one of the most spectacular cars of all time and so we like to feature it whenever we can. Sophia Loren had one, which means that at some point in history, a guy pulled up at a stop light, looked left and saw a Mercedes 300SL with a smiling Sophia Loren behind the wheel. I’d need a lie down after an experience like that.
