Few sports cars in the history of automobile manufacturing have attained the iconic status of the celebrated Mercedes-Benz 300SL Coupe, which combines an unrivaled racing lineage with a truly innovative design. First appearing in 1952 as a racing sports car intended to return Mercedes-Benz to competitive prominence; the 300SL was notable for its advanced lightweight space-frame chassis and a retuned version of legendary engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut's inline six-cylinder engine, which was already utilized in the 300 sedans. Of course, the most notable physical features of Sindelfingen designer Karl Wilfert's beautiful coachwork were the roof-hinged doors, which were necessitated by the chassis' high waist, thus giving the model its eventual nickname, the Gullwing.'.
