The SL-Class is Mercedes-Benz's answer to the luxury grand touring segment. The SL stands for Super Leicht, or super light, owing to the car's lightness and ease of ride. The 300 SL is the progenitor of the SL-Class and was made for the Grand Prix until an American dealer convinced Mercedes-Benz to market it as an ultra-luxury model. With seven generations under its belt, the SL-Class has proven that it is a model that will stand the test of time.
