Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire still lives a life that most of us only dream of, and this video is yet another glimpse inside the awesome experience that is Matt’s life.

Matt has the opportunity to take a ride in a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, considered by many to be the original supercar. When it was new in 1955, the 300SL was capable of reaching 150 MPH, considerably faster than any other production vehicle of its day. The car featured a 3.0 liter slant six engine mated to a four speed transmission, and was literally a road-going version of the Mercedes LeMans racecars.

In addition to the history of the platform, this particular car has a very interesting tale to tell, and who better to share than Deiter from HG Motorsports. Hit the play button and check it out below!
