Achieving excellence is an art of itself. It is not for anybody. This is what inspired David Marchal to explore the iconic Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star as an art object and to share his interpretation named ‘Star of Excellence’.

It is built by three Mercedes 300 SL Roadsters (W198) – the convertible version of the legendary Gullwing Benz. It was the fastest production vehicle when launched in mid 50`s.


The original 300 SL is a truly iconic car by so many reasons. Starting with its technical excellence by featuring first fuel injection on a production model. A twisted engine in order to fit under the lowered hood. First sporty Benz bred by true racing car. Graceful design with specific arches over the wheels to keep the drag as low as possible. This car was, and still is, an automotive haute couture. Period.

Now you can keep this feeling as beautiful photo car art print, created by David Marchal and beautifully issued by Simply Petrol.


David is born and raised in Belgium where he got his degree in Interior Architecture. He is experienced 3D artist with a distinctive approach in terms of photorealism, composition, colors and light. He is playful with existing shapes in order to create new ones presented in entirely different context.

David`s family started his automotive passion through their connoisseur taste in Citroen, based on DS, CX (hopefully the GTi Turbo version), 2CV and GS presence in their garage.

As a late 80`s kid, David Marchal dreamed of Jaguar XJ. Back then, this sporty coupe was the pinnacle of British luxury, hence expensive. When depreciation hit such cars because of their age and reliability, his father bought one in burgundy red. And he got in love again. Guess what – after his dad moved to another car, now David Marchal keeps an exclusive British cat in his garage.
