Coupe
Chassis Num: 198043-6500015
This is one of only 29 alloy-bodied 300SL 'Gullwing' Coupe bodies hand built in the racing department of Mercedes-Benz in Unterturkheim, Germany, before being transported to the Sindelfingen factory where the complete cars were assembled. This Gullwing is the only alloy car with the original combination of Elephant Ivory paint, red tartan gabardine upholstered seats and cream trim. It also has the original high-performance specification NSL 2996-cc straight-6 engine that was fitted to only 4 percent of the Gullwings. The car was ordered by Robin Grant of Barnet Instruments in London and was later owned by racing driver and Le Mans entrant David Piper in the 1960s.
