Mercedes-Benz Star of Excellence photo car art print

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.
