Mercedes 300 SL convertible....
"Based upon the legendary W194 sports racer, Mercedes-Benz introduced the
production 300SL in New York in 1954. The US was expected to be its primary
market, and Mercedes-Benz importer Max Hoffman had encouraged
Mercedes-Benz managment to build it. During the 300SL’s life three out of four
were sold in the US. There were only 1858 SL Roadsters ever produced."
