The new SL had to replace the iconic 300 SL but also the very successful mode 190 SL. That is why the Mercedes sports car was newly defined: high performance combined with optimal driving behavior and polished comfort. These criteria matched perfectly with the series W 113 and the 230 SL and it became a modern replacement for the 190 SL. The 300 SL, however, was irreplaceable. The market welcomed the new SL with enthusiasm and that has not changed. Mercedes-Benz has been known to constantly upgrade its model series thus the 230 SL became the 250 SL and ultimately the 280 SL, its most mature version.
Our impressive 280 SL was delivered to the US with a title in California. It has been registered in Germany since 1995 and is with its current owner since 1997. The classic has been a loyal companion on big trips. Despite its origin in the US, it features the so-called medium rear axle transmission. This car comes with comprehensive receipts from German body shops confirming that it has always been technically taken care of.
