The Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster is one of the enduring icons of automotive design, in fact it’s a shame that it’s often overshadowed by its more famous sibling – the 300SL Gullwing.
The Roadster you see here is due to be auctioned on Saturday the 16th of August 2014 at Monterey, it has an estimated value of $1.3 to $1.6 million USD and if you’d like to bid you can click here.
