We offer one of only 478 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadsters with disc brakes delivered ex works. Our car in the elegant color combination black, combined with bordeaux red leather interior, as well as black soft top was delivered to the US in 1961 and approved for the first time on 15th November. In addition, Rudge central locking rims of the company German Rudge Wheels were installed in 2014 (original price € 11,500), as well as a smaller steering wheel with power steering from the company EZ Power Steering. The original steering wheel as well as the original rims in chrome finish are still available and can be easily dismantled. The engine was already overhauled a few years ago and shows excellent compression values, in addition, the paint and interior were renewed. According to the register, the roadster had two owners in the USA (California) before it was imported to Germany in 1991, where it remained for 20 years in a collector’s hand. Even today, this 300 SL captivates with its great color combination, flawless technology and later as the 300 SL Roadster with the coveted
and rare disc brakes on the front and rear axles.

The only company worldwide dedicated solely to the restoration of the exclusively valuable Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Serving for the past 25 years with intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm. Entrepreneur, director and world-renowned expert in the automotive icon with the trademark star, is Hans Kleissl. Hardly anyone else has such a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion. Being a classic car enthusiast and collector himself led to his founding of HK-ENGINEERING. „He's one of us,” is the common opinion among his customers. HK-ENGINEERING is set in a lovingly restored monastery in the Bavarian village of Polling, with an additional branch in the Berlin Classic Remise. Further partners and representatives are located outside of German borders, listed in detail under the heading „Contact.“ HK-ENGINEERING is well-established. Throughout years of service in Kleissl's SL workshop, mechanical engineers have made technical contributions to the sustainable conservation of this unique Mercedes model series. As a result, while it previously took at least a year to bring a Gullwing or Roadster back to its original glory, the mechanics in Polling can now finish an entire „resurrection” of a 300 SL in only six to nine months. HK-ENGINEERING offers its clients restoration of nearly all original parts: from refurbishing old leathers to matching original body paint. Of course, they are also able to restore classic Mercedes-Benz cars from the ground-up. Since 1995, HK-ENGINEERING has operated its own racing team. To date they've built a dozen SLS-type cars. „While others speak of their great technical competence, we prove ours on the track,“ boasts Hans Kleissl. Aside from the vast technical expertise, Kleissl is deeply involved in the social aspect of the 300 SL series. He has served on the board of directors for the 300 SL club of Germany for more than ten years. More than fifty 300 SL automobiles are currently in the Polling establishment. To meet the ever-growing demand, the team of HK-ENGINEERING has grown to more than forty employees.
