When new, this roadster was given by Desi Arnaz as a gift to Robert Stack when he won the Emmy for his role in the Untouchables TV series. Like all 300SLs, it was equipped with a 237-horsepower six-cylinder engine that was mounted in the chassis at a slight angle to allow for a low, sloping hood. Top speed was a high 160 miles per hour. The Letters 'SL' stand for 'sehr leicht' (super light) and are still used today in the model designation of Mercedes-Benz's sportiest cars. Originally designed for road racing, the 300SL had a tube-frame for strength and rigidity and was the world's first production automobile to have fuel-injection.
