Description
Perhaps most appealing about the car was its unique styling. Clearly linked to earlier Stuttgart designs, it featured the broad front grille of the 300SL, albeit in a squared-up shape. As with its predecessors, it was available as a roadster, roadster/coupe, or pure coupe. Most distinctive was its roofline, the so called "pagoda roof," designed by Paul Bracq and Bela Barenyi. The upright roofline contained lots of glass area, with raised sides and a lower center panel instead of curving conventionally upwards toward the middle, la a Japanese pagoda. Production of 230SLs continued until the uprated 250SL made its debut at the 1967 Geneva show. Though horsepower ratings remained the same, the new 2,496-cubic centimeter engine provided more torque for better acceleration. Wheel rims increased from 5.5 to 6 inches, and four-wheel disc brakes became standard. The coupe version was dropped. As the final version, the 280SL made its public appearance early in 1968. Most notable was the increased engine displacement to 2,778 cubic centimeters, this time with a bump in both torque and horsepower (to 180). Interiors were upgraded, along with a myriad of detail refinements. The final 280SL came off the assembly line in March 1971. A total of 23,885 were produced during the model run, making it the most popular of all the roadsters built to date. The example we are offering is a Manual 1971 car that is confirmed to have spent time in South Carolina, USA. Fresh from nut and bolt restoration the car sits in a gorgeous Red exterior over Black interior with Black Hard top.
