Mercedes Benz 300 SL Coupé


Mercedes Benz 300 SL Coupé: 

arcurio® is manufacturing the model of this timelessly elegant Mercedes Benz 300 SL according to the company’s own plans and under license of MB Classic Collection from prime European wood.

The legendary „gull-wing coupe” was the first true postwar sports-car developed and produced by Daimler-Benz of Germany.

The development was initiated by Max Hoffmann, an American of Austrian descent, who since September 1952 was the official importer of Mercedes Benz cars to America. The Board of Directors of Daimler Benz (DB) understood Hoffmann’s desire to sell sports-cars with the DB star on its hood as a welcome opportunity to gain access to the US market for this and other Daimler Benz products: In September of 1953 the starting signal for the development of two types of sports-cars was given.
