Mercedes-Benz 300SL

The notorious Gullwing for the first time appeared in 1952 and the type of racing cars. It was used a spatial frame with a network of small arms and that's why the model was easy, although the high sides of the chassis meant that the installation of the traditional doors is excluded. Thus obtained a draft of the Gullwing, in which hardly had the doorway to get to the salon. The chassis was strong, but let us down suspension, especially in spring back, because of what had difficulties with the office, all the brakes were kolodochnymi and not very effective. In the model SL was used engine sedan, but with the system dry sump lubrication and mechanical fuel injection, which required a lot of space under the hood. Used another thickening, just to balance the model. Double convertible 1957 issue came out much better, with an improved rear suspension, powerful disc brakes and less crowded area.
