Incidentally, the original body of the car was white, and this was the first instance of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, which was a combination of the white body and completely black interior decor. However, in 1962 the car was repainted in red and in the mid-80s the owner decided that his machine is most suitable to be all painted into black, and this was the last experiment with the style of the car.
