Mercedes-Benz 300 SL -- July 15, 2012

San Francisco's Academy of Art University has a fine collection of classic cars available for study by its design students. They shared the collection at the 2010 San Francisco International Auto Show.  In 1954, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL introduced gull wing doors to the American market.  It became a very popular model for those who could afford it.  The aerodynamic design, light weight and fuel-injected 3 litre engine gave the car a good top speed.
