The lineage of the Mercedes Benz SL dates back to 1953, and over the years the car has had a number of transformations. The series began with the original gull-wing coupe that was soon joined by the classic long nose roadster based on the first SLR. In the 1960s, the SL shrunk to become a much smaller, less powerful convertible before it began growing again in the 1970s and becoming the techno monster it is today. While wandering around the Dream Cruise, we stumbled across a pair of superlative SLs for you to peruse.
