An Underrated Mercedes by /DRIVEN

The Mercedes-Benz SL has had a long and prosperous history, starting its heritage in the 50s with the iconic Gullwing 300SL. Beautiful and elegant in its own right, the second generation SL always lived in the shadows of the 300SL — a car that was light years ahead of its time — which some say was the first super car ever produced.

Although the Pagoda always lived in the shadows of its older sibling, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have its loyal following, who call the second generation SL “Pagoda” because of the shape of its roofline.

Take a look at the video above by Driven to see how a family’s passion for the car has lead to a love affair that transcends generations.
