Brimful of cutting-edge technology, its impressively rigid two-door monocoque bodyshell featured an integral rollover bar that deployed in less than a third of a second (if the car ever sensed an impending flip) and a fully automatic convertible roof. Known for its sure-footed handling, the R129 utilised all-round independent suspension, ABS brakes and power assisted steering. Propelled by a variety of six- and eight-cylinder engines all allied to automatic transmission, it was the sportscar of choice for many contemporary F1 drivers. Reputed to develop some 188bhp and 192lbft of torque courtesy of its 2960cc SOHC straight-six, the 300 SL was a paragon of refinement (despite its claimed ability to sprint from 0-60mph in 9.0 seconds and onto 142mph).
