Running “Holiday Errands” with a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
While holiday errands are a nightmare for many who frequent mini-malls and downtown stores jam packed with eager shoppers, a simple change to one’s transportation can make all the difference. At least that’s the message from Mercedes this season, whom in the above video demonstrates the irresistible urge felt by drivers of this legendary car to take the long way home. Introduced in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL was the fastest production car of its day, as it was also the first fuel-injected automobile to hit city streets. However, its most distinctive feature are the gullwing doors, which were only produced on models made from 1955-1957.
