The handsomely styled Mercedes-Benz W113 Pagoda SL is one of the most collectable, eminently usable and universally loved classics ever to grace the road.
In the spring of 1963, Mercedes-Benz debuted an all-new roadster to replace the 190 SL and 300 SL - the 230SL. Penned by Paul Bracq, the Mercedes-Benz 280 SL was the final, best performing and most refined iteration of the Pagoda Roof W113 SL series cars.
Offering the perfect combination of Benz race-bred pedigree and timeless architecture the 230, 250 and 280 SL’s are destined to remain a popular and coveted car for generations to come.
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 unmistakable shape of the Pagoda is easily recognizable and is still one of the best looking Mercedes Benz’s around. 48,912 Units where produced in Stuttgart from 63-71. Popular across the globe, the SL models are becoming very collectable
The car offered is an exceptionally well restored original RHD SL. Imported from Hong Kong with its original books some time ago, the car under went a back to metal rebuild from body to engine to interior. Coming with an album of photos and a bible of paper, the journey of the classic has been very well documented.
Available for viewing at our showroom under the Sydney Harbour bridge, the scenery paints the perfect picture where this classic can bring many wonderful miles of travelling.
