In March 1963 the new generation of SL sports cars was launched with the debut of the 230 SL at the Geneva Show. This revolutionary new model replaced the now ageing 190 and 300 SL models, and cutting-edge Mercedes engineering together with elegance and practicality, made the ‘pagoda top’ SL one of the most distinctive and attractive cars of its era. In closed form it offered handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort, while the easy removal of the hard-top turned it into an open top sports car for the summer months.

During the 1960s Mercedes-Benz refined and updated the SL by also fitting the 250 engine, and finally the 280. As today, Mercedes-Benz cars were never cheap, but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 280 SL a very popular choice with the rich and famous, as well as the merely well-heeled. We’re informed by the vendor that the 280 SL offered here was restored some 20 years ago, but that it still drives very nicely with good oil pressure and no smoke. Elegantly finished in Mercedes silver and supplied with its hard-top and period radio, this 280 SL is also offered at a very realistic price in today’s market and so is one definitely not to be missed.

Der von Paul Bracq gezeichnete Mercedes SL ist zweifellos einer der schönsten Sportwagen seiner Zeit und gegenwärtig einer der meistgesuchtesten und beliebtesten deutschen Sportwagen, ins besondere der 280 SL. Diese stärkste Version mit 170 PS und wie hier mit dem begehrten Automatik – Getriebe ausgestattet, ist auch im heutigen Strassenverkehr sehr leicht zu bewegen. Der Einlieferer hat uns informiert, dass der SL wohl vor ca. 20 Jahren restauriert wurde, aber immer noch sehr schön zu fahren ist und einen guten Öldruck aufweist. Seine elegante Erscheinung in silber – metallic mit passendem Hard – Top und schwarzem Interieur und Radio tun dazu ihr übriges. Sehr günstig angeboten und eine Gelegenheit, die man sich nicht entgehen lassen sollte.
