Famous chequered pattern from racing: Maximum originality: Upholsteries for Mercedes-Benz 300 SL available again in original specification

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” is regarded as the sports car of the century. Its interior is characterised by chequered upholsteries like the ones used in the 300 SL sports car (W 194). Mercedes-Benz Classic has now arranged for the original patterns from the 300 SL (W 198, 1954 to 1957) series sports car to be reproduced by the original supplier according to their original specification. The fabrics can be ordered from any Mercedes-Benz sales partner.

Stuttgart. Three chequered upholsteries with the code numbers L1 (blue-grey), L2 (red-green) and L3 (green-beige) for seat cushions and seat backrests were available ex factory for the legendary 300 SL “Gullwing”. They were combined, for example, on the seat side bolsters and seat backs, with MB-Tex in blue, beige and green. Leather upholstery was available as an alternative for an additional charge of DM 600.

This reproduction of the chequered upholsteries is Mercedes-Benz Classic’s response to the popular request from owners of the legendary sports car for the original specification of the interior material. As was the case at the premiere of the “Gullwing” model in 1954 the three fabrics correspond to the original delivery specification of the then Daimler-Benz AG, and are therefore made from 100-percent high-quality wool yarn. When it came to determining the exact colours and patterns, Mercedes-Benz Classic worked closely with the Design department in Sindelfingen – which is also historically authentic.
