1968 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Pagoda Lot Number 277 Registration tbc Chassis Number 11304410008506 Odometer reading 34,322 miles Estimate £38,000 - £44,000 Print details Send this to a friend The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, Chief Engineer Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Head of Styling Friedrich Geiger. The lead designers were Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi who created its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop which inspired the 'Pagoda' nickname. In 1963, Mercedes-Benz debuted the all-new roadster to replace the 190 SL and 300 SL, the 230 SL. The 230 SL was a stunning designed two-seat convertible that followed Mercedes-Benz new design language featuring crisp lines and upright headlights. To save on weight, the hood, door skins, boot lid and tonneau cover were all composed of aluminium. In 1967, Mercedes-Benz introduced the third and final iteration of the 'Pagoda', the 280 SL, and it then became apparent that some cars don't change, they just get better. Originally a Californian car, this Mercedes-Benz was imported into the UK in 2015 and is supplied with the necessary NOVA certificate to enable registration in the UK. She is currently MoT’d until 5 th October 2018. The white paintwork is in good order and shows no sign of corrosion, the leather interior is also virtually unmarked. These 280 SL are superb touring machines and are able to cruise comfortably on the motorway at 80mph. Supplied with a hardtop, this Mercedes-Benz is ready to enjoy immediately whether that involves a trip to the shops or a daily commute.
