Whether you love it for its sloping design, its classic curves, or its gull wing doors, it's hard not to love the original Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Sure the current SLS AMGs are nice, but if you're going to live out a 1950s superspy fantasy, the 300SL is probably on your short list of getaway cars.

Think this is the best Mercedes roadster ever? Tell us why. Think it's vastly overrated? ...keep those opinions to yourse—I mean, we would be delighted to hear those too!
