The 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is a Classic German Car. It is unlocked at Rank 250, and appeared in Ultimate Driving on 16th March 2020. It is called 1954 Superbia 215 Pelican in-game.
The 300 SL was inspired by Max Hoffman, Mercedes-Benz's authorized United States importer at the time, who correctly perceived a large American market for such a car. The company introduced the 300 SL in February 1954 at the International Motor Sports Show in New York instead of in Europe in order to get it into U.S. buyers' hands sooner.
SL is the short form for "super-light" in German, Mercedes' first use of the designation, referring to the car's racing-bred light tubular frame construction.
The 300 SL was voted the "sports car of the century" in 1999.
