The current owner bought the car in 1999 before embarking on a thorough restoration to concours condition, returning the 300 SL to its original and classic colors of Silver and blue-grey plaid interior.

Since the restoration, the car has won Greenwich Concours’ Most Outstanding Mercedes-Benz Award twice, in 2010 and 2016. This 1955 Gullwing even comes with its original matching two-piece luggage

With only 1,374 examples ever built, over a three-year production run, the 300 SL coupe has become one of the most collectible sports cars ever built.
