Mercedes-Benz 230 SL.

The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL was the worlds first sports car with a sturdy passenger cell and crumple zones. Its outstanding feature is the extremely sturdy, concave shape of the removable hardtop. Popularly, the 230 SL was soon referred to only as the Pagoda – its hardtop reminded people of the roof shape of the Asian temples of the same name.
