This week’s Mercedes-Benz 300 SL hints at what it would have been like if a spaceship had landed in the desert in 1955.

Get the full story on Craig's 300SL along with some amazing photos here: https://www.hagerty.com/articles-videos/articles/2018/04/20/flat-out-1955-mercedes-benz-300-sl-gullwing
Say goodbye to parade laps. This is Flat Out, which means you're about to get a taste of your favorite classic cars being pushed to their limits. All it takes is a worthy ride, an open track, and a driver willing to test his or her mettle at the ragged edge.
