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.
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.
