Unknown photographer: An original b/w press photograph of Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. Back with Australian news telegram dated November 7th 1968. Furthermore publication dates (November 18th 1968, June 16th 1970). Photo size 21.5×13 cm. Frame size 43×33 cm.

Mercedes-Benz SLR (Sport Leicht-Rennen/Sport Light-Racing), in this version produced in only nine specimens, is today one of the most expensive cars in the world and during its era it exceeded all other comparable vehicles in regards to yielding capacity and speed. The maximum pace of the SLR is 263 km/h, a fact that made it peerless among “production cars” through the 1950s and 1960s.
