Through triumph and tragedy, the original Mercedes-Benz SL left its mark not only on the racing world, but in the minds and imaginations of sports-car fans the world over.
The highly coveted German car figured in some of the most memorable racing moments of all time, from the most heroic to the saddest. Such is the legacy of a car that, more than 50 years following its creation, commands eye-riveting attention whenever one appears at any classic-car gathering.
But it wasn’t for Max Hoffman, North Americans would have known little of the 300SL.
