The unmistakable shape of the Pagoda is easily recognizable and is still one of the best looking Mercedes Benz’s around. When it was launched it immediately attracted buyers such as John Lennon, Tina Turner and Audrey Hepburn but it wasn’t just the A grade celebrities that wanted the stylish Benz, racing legends such as Stirling Moss and Juan-Manuel Fangio appreciated the rear wheel drive, straight six Pagoda was not one to be missed.
The 280 SL is the third iteration of the 113 series benefitting primarily from a larger engine but also offered four-wheel disc brakes and a beautifully restyled interior with contemporary chrome switches, dials and door release catches, power steering, reclining seats and a large boot as standard. The 280 SL also featured a much more civilised and quieter ride, shorter gearing ratios, improved rust proofing and more torque than its predecessors.
The car we have on offer is a genuine Australian delivered 280 SL in its original colour combination. The history file is extensive down to its original owners and service manuals all contained in their Mercedes pouch.
Documentation of its delivery and a service book covered in Mercedes Dealers and Mercedes specialists stamps all showing mileage and date of the servicing completed demonstrates the level of care each owner has taken with this beautiful Pagoda.
On top of regular maintenance the car has recently undergone full engine rebuild in 2020.
Having the correct provenance on hand for such a collectable car makes it easy to see that the car has been maintained correctly and fastidiously.
With soft and hard top, the Pagoda is an all year round classic. Ready for a summer cruise down to the beach, a long journey to that favorite country pub or surprisingly just as content pottering through city traffic. This really is the classic that can do it all!
The amazing colour combination show this car was bought in a time when grace, pace and taste were the essence of design, the theme of deep red contrasting with Ivory white is seen throughout the car's interior and exterior, really separating this already classy Pagoda from others.
The opportunity to own, drive and invest in a world class Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda is a rarity. This is one of the most exciting cars we’ve had the opportunity to bring to market. A viewing is an absolute must.
