About the 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster

 

In 1957 the legendary Gullwing was succeeded by the roadster version of the 300 SL. The open sports car - long wished-for mainly by the American clientele - came with regular doors, made possible by a revised space frame with lower frame side members. The newly fitted single-joint swing axle made the high-performance sports car easy to handle even for less experienced drivers.

About the Mercedes-Benz Museum

 

The Mercedes-Benz Museum – A milestone in contemporary architecture

 

Located at the gates of the city, visitors to Stuttgart are greeted with the view of a unique new structure. Designed by UNStudio, one of the world's most respected architecture firms, the Mercedes‑Benz Museum is worth a visit for its design alone.

 

Ben van Berkel, joint founder and Director of UNStudio sums it up like this: "The Mercedes‑Benz Museum sets up an interface for a series of radical spatial principles in order to create a completely new typology."

 

One of the most outstanding aspects of this groundbreaking concept is the route taken by visitors through the Museum. They do not begin their visit to the exhibition at a conventional entrance at the base of the building. They are transported by lift to the top floor. Here they have the choice of two tours, during which they descend through the building. The paths of each tour meet on each floor, enabling visitors to switch between tours – the Collections tour and Legend tour – should they wish to do so.

 

120 years in the spirit of tradition

 

As inventors of the automobile, we are aware of our responsibilities. Our pursuit of perfection and passion for building cars have been an established tradition for 120 years. This tradition was extended in unique fashion in May 2006. At the birthplace of the automobile, Mercedes‑Benz stages an exciting journey through history, enabling you to experience the identity and legend of the brand.
