The Mercedes Benz SL, Sport Light, was first launched in 1954 and caused a sensation with its Gullwing doors and motorsport derived technology. The third generation SL, the R 107, followed the Mercedes Benz SL tradition of front engine, rear wheel drive with a smooth, luxurious, and powerful package.
