A tribute to Mercedes-Benz SL Roadsters is set for Pebble Beach Automotive Week with three 1952 W194 vehicles among a mix of vintage and new vehicles bearing the three-pointed star that express the marque's breadth and depth of fascinating design and innovation.
The legendary SL, over the past six decades, continues to be one of most iconic vehicles among car collectors and six significant variations from the 1950s will be displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge located on third fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. These vintage SL treasures will be placed next to the 2013 SL63 AMG, contrasting the technical innovations from sixty years ago with today's advanced roadster that embodies the 'Super Light' namesake with its new aluminum body. In addition to honoring the SL anniversary at the Star Lounge, new and vintage SL Roadsters will lead the Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance presented by Rolex on August 16, 2012.
