1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL


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 300SL models. Mercedes engineering, together with elegance and practicality, made the pagoda top SL one of the most distinctive designs of its era. In closed form it offered handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort, whilst the easy removal of the pagoda hard top turned it into an open top sports car for the summer months.


During the 1960s Mercedes-Benz refined the model, later fitting the 250 engine and finally arriving at the 280SL. As today, Mercedes-Benz motor cars were never cheap, but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 280SL an extremely popular sports car with the rich and famous.


This lovely example is presented in dark green and comes with a black interior, a  new black hood and a factory hard top.  The super smooth 2.8 litre engine is mated to an automatic gearbox and the car is in excellent condition throughout. These are the most desirable of the “ Pagoda” Mercedes and are sought after by many of the finest collectors and investors. This wonderful looking Mercedes would be at home in any collection or indeed just enjoyed on the road as it was originally built for.

Ce superbe modèle est de couleur  vert sombre avec un intérieur noir, un nouveau capot noir et un toit  en  dur d’origine. Le moteur 2.8 litres d’une grande souplesse a une boite de vitesses automatique et la voiture est en excellent état général. C’est une des plus désirables  Mercedes « Pagoda »  qui  sont très recherchées par les plus grands  collectionneurs et les investisseurs. Cette magnifique Mercedes sera à sa place dans n’importe quelle collection ou donnera juste le plaisir de conduire , ce pour quoi elle a d’ailleurs été conçue.
