Like many great cars, the roots of this one are in motorsports. After the end of WWII, Mercedes comes back to competitions on a tight budget. The Bavarians decide to utilize the existing 300 engine. It is matched with a tubular steel frame in an aluminium body. Because of the tubular steel frame chassis, the car requires different doors. This is how Gullwing is born - a W194 endurance sports car, which finishes 1-2 in 1952 Le Mans and later experiences road-going transformation. Nicolas Cancelier's art print is inspired by the spectacular Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

This Mercedes-Benz 300 SL art celebrates a spectacular car

After W194 inevitable retirement from racing, Max Hoffman visits Stuttgart. The importer of high-end European cars in the USA insists that Mercedes-Benz needs luxury sports car that are tailor-made for the American market. He gently pushes the Bavarian management to approve the project and 300 SL is born.

The car keeps the racing pedigree of its successors and demonstrates even more. The 3-litre straight-6 engine features Bosch direct-mechanical fuel injection responsible for more efficient combustion and higher power. The engine is capable of 220 hp, enough for a max speed of 250 km/h, depending on the final drive ratio. For the mid-'50s this is an exceptional accomplishment.

The unique injection is chain-driven. After the engine switches off this causes fuel leakage in the oil pan due to excess amount of gasoline in cylinders. That is why 300 SL experts strongly recommend oil change at every 1000 miles. 300 SL retains the fixed windows from the racing W194. This is combination with the absence of air-conditioning requires open door driving.

Nicolas Cancelier, born into an artistic family, discovered his passion for motorsport during his youth when a neighbor, a mechanic, introduced him to races at Spa and Nurburgring circuits. Channeling this racing enthusiasm, he expressed his love for the sport through various artistic mediums such as oil, watercolor, pastels, and pencil. His preferred eras in motorsport are the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and his artworks beautifully capture the essence of these iconic racing periods.
