After the first racing successes in 1952 during the 24-hour race of Le Mans, the Mercedes-Benz engineers got to work in 1954 and developed a racing car into the first sports car 300 SL in series production that anyone could buy. At 260 km/h, it was the fastest sports car in the world at the time. The unique design with “gull-wing doors” made it an icon of the 1950s.

A PLAYMOBIL model with many facets

The replica from PLAYMOBIL will excite car fans with many authentic details. In addition to the gull-wing doors, the chrome effect of the wing mirror, bumpers, radiator grille, headlight rings and wheel caps give the model a refined character. The car has space for the driver and co-pilot - simply swing open the doors, get in and the classic car rally can begin. For emergencies while driving, a tool kit can be stored under the boot lid. An included presentation board contains interesting information about this iconic vehicle.

The Mercedes-Benz SL - a success story

For the racetrack: March 12, 1952 Mercedes-Benz presented the 300 SL (W 194), a thoroughbred racing sports car, to the media on a freeway near Stuttgart. It marked the brand's entry into international motorsport a few weeks later.

Magic letters: The "S" stands for "super" and the "L" for "light" - as noted in the press release at the time.

Limited: Only 1,400 examples of the coveted sports car with the characteristic gullwing doors were built. Today, the vehicles reach prices well beyond one million euros.

"Pagoda": In 1963, the 230 SL replaced both the 300 SL Roadster and the 190 SL. It impresses with sportiness, comfort and safety. Since then, it has led the way for the SL tradition.

Endurance runner: The first SL series with eight-cylinder engines is the R 107, presented in 1971. It was built for 18 years - which is a record.

16 seconds: That's how fast the SL of the R 230 series opens to the sun - or closes the vario-roof in bad weather. Optional coupe and roadster - a dream for customers.

High-performance coupé: The SL 65 AMG Black Series has 493 kW (670 hp) under the hood. The vehicles from Affalterbach are very successful - almost a third of all R 230s have AMG engines.
