Mercedes-Benz 280 SL

To create an open sports car successor for the famous 300 SL and the very successful 190 SL was a challenging task. So when the brand new 230 SL arrived in 1963 the reviews were mixed. The modern Roadster was certainly an excellent backfill for the 190 SL but not the 300 SL. Six-cylinder engine, power steering, disk brakes and automatic transmission on demand are all technical details that are valid today.

Our Mercedes-Benz 280 SL from the last series was delivered in 1969 by the Daimler-Benz dealership in Frankfurt/Germany. The classic sports car is with its 3rd owner today. Its papers are complete and available and its mileage of 145,000 kms is confirmed through service certificates. This Roadster has never been restored but certainly repaired, e.g. the fenders were replaced and painted in its original color. Additionally, the car received body-cavity sealing. This classic is a German vehicle in best shape for use which is a rarity.

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.

At the beginning of 1963 both the iconic Mercedes 300 SL as well as its unusual “brother” Mercedes 190 SL ceased production. Their successor, the Mercedes 230 SL, aka “Pagoda” was supposed to fix things. Compared to the 190 SL it was big progress but it could not replace the 300 SL. The series W 113 sold very well. Its continuous improvement and development kept the sports car modern for a long time. From January 1968 onwards the 280 SL was available with a renewed 2.8 liter engine. Experts agree that this model is the most balanced in the Pagoda series.

We assume that our Mercedes-Benz 280 SL was delivered in Europe, most likely in France. Its technology and chassis were overhauled. Since 2017 this classic car is registered with its current German owner. Its color combination of silver with black leather is a classic and is a perfect fit for a Mercedes 280 SL. This “Pagoda” is an uncomplicated, every day classic for you to enjoy!
