The museum is currently hosting a special exhibition called “Fascination SL – a dream car for 70 years”, and visitors who are passionate about the sports car’s history have the chance to see it until May 15 next year. Nine vehicles and various exhibits will be showcased.
As for the gift ideas proposed by the carmaker, Mercedes fans can choose between various items, with many of them being related to the tradition of the SL. There’s a model kit of the Gullwing Coupe on a 1:38 scale, which is available exclusively from the Mercedes-Benz Classic store. It will give you the chance to flaunt your very own Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, even if in a miniature version, and just on your desk or shelf. It is priced at approximately $22 (€20).
You can also buy the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Advent calendar, a model kit of the car, with a different component behind each door for the next 24 days (the time left until Christmas). That one will cost you $67 (€60). Three other such advent calendars are also available to buy for the Mercedes-AMG GT, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and the Unimog.
The mascots of the Mercedes-Benz Museum are also up for grabs. Carlotta and Carlchen are available as stuffed toys, jigsaw puzzles, T-shirts, key rings, gym bags, and more.
Mercedes fans who love to get comfortable with a good book during the holidays can also opt for the Mercedes-Benz C 111 Fackelträger, Traumsportwagen und Rekordwagen book on the history of the legendary series although you should know the book is only available in German. It is priced at around $77 (€69).
