Hidden Treasure - Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster


The colorful vintage cars that survive on Cuba's roads continue to fascinate automotive fans around the world. Automotive photographer Piotr Degler's new book "Carros de Cuba" chronicles his trip there in 2014 and collects over 200 of his best images from the journey. He found two hidden treasures, a 300SL gullwing and 300SL roadster. As for the roadster, it still had a hardtop on and is somewhat more known around Cuba. It was first spotted as part of a Jeremy Clarkson (former host of Top Gear) video back in 1996. Its engine is not the 3.0-liter straight-six, but apparently something out of a Corvette, presumably a V8.
