Mercedes-Benz 280Sl Pagoda Automatic Roadster 1970 for sale




In 1963 on the Geneva Motor show, the all new W113, Mercedes 'Pagode' 230SL was introduced. Its very sleak and elegant design introduced a complete new Design wind within Mercedes. Beautifully designed by Paul Bracq, Béla Barényi and Friedrich Geiger, the design introduced airiness, roominess and elegant timeless lines and was well appreciated by the public.

Production of the Mercedes W113 commenced in June 1963 with the 230sl. Living up to the heritage of its predecessors, the infamous 300sl and the smaller 190sl, was a big task laying to wait. With the uprated 250SL in 1966 and the biggest, 280sl, model in 1967, it was a top selling product in the very high end luxury market. In 1971, the 280SL had to make room for the R107, making it almost twice as succesfull as the 190 and 300sl combined with a total of 48.912 W113 units produced.

The new formula seemed to be a great succes and a lot of people still love the car today. The Pagode is still a very sought after 2-door sports roadster for sunday cruises as well for the heavier rally work. The top model, the 280sl, propulses you with ease to 200km/h by the 170 horses underneath the bonnet. With an empty weight of 1360kg, the power to weight ratio can be called 'sporty' and great fun!

The car we offer you for sale is one of those 7.935 280SL units produced in 1970. It has been restored to very high standards and is almost new from top to bottom. It comes with the very desirable hard top, making it a very comfortable 'winter' car as well. This example is the nicer European spec model, preserving the elegant lines and front headlight lenses. The white steering wheel, will give you that high end feeling when you will sit in the new interior listening to the original Becker Mexico radio. The only thing you have to think of is to put it in Drive, the automatic gearbox will do the rest.

With a lovely summer coming up, you absolutely can not without this car. Capable of cruising to the Côte d'Azur or an speedy local rally, this Pagode in stunning colour setting is the one to have.
Please come over, we are convinced that you want to take it home after a testdrive.
