100 Other Beautiful Cars: #56
Mercedes-Benz 230 SLDel Stewart

100 Other Beautiful Cars not on the London Telegraph's list of 100 Most Beautiful Cars of History, 56 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL.

I don't include the SL on this list because it's eye-wateringly beautiful. It's pretty understated, really on the verge of being a little boring.  Still, it's an iconic car because it met the market segment of wealthy people who didn't want to be making any flashy statements. It gave them their two-seater zoom-about without shouting anything to anyone.
