Daimler-Benz developed this hardtop version of the 300 SLR racing car for the 1956 season. It was never used in racing, however, because the company ceased its motorsport activities at the end of the 1955 season. Instead, the 300 SLR coupe served the head of the Test Department, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, as a company car. The nickname "Uhlenhaut coupe" is a reminder of this.
Displacement: 182 cu in
Output: 302 hp (222 kW)

Mercedes 300SL Gullwing at Bonneville Gives Us Salt Fever
There are many ways to enjoy your toys, from driving, to racing, to keeping
them in a collection, there are various avenues to gaining pleasure from
what you own. For Bob Sirna, this comes from racing at the salt flats of
Bonneville. Many different types of cars run at Bonneville, but Bob chooses
a car that you wouldn't ever expect to be racing, let alone down a strip of
metal-eating salt: a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. Now fetching over a
million dollars, the 300SL is a car that you mainly see at a concourse or
in a museum—not trying to break land speed records at Speed Week. For the
last 12 years Bob has been bringing his Gullwing to the salt in an effort
to break records and cure his "salt fever." Bob likes to say, "Enjoy your
toys," and this is a motto we can stand behind.

2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
MSRP pricing of the SLR, before options, began somewhere around $450,000.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
