Introduced early in 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280SL. The body and chassis of the 3rd generation Mercedes-Benz SL was considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor but still showed a resemblance to them. The front and rear axles were similar to those of the 200-250 models, with independent wheel suspension using double wishbones and anti-drive control at the front and a diagonal swing axle at the rear. A four speed fluid-coupling automatic transmission was available as an option. The 3.5 litre, V8 engine underwent slight modifications to those being used on other models and the gear shift lever was placed on the floor in the centre of the car. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generation SL's, the vehicle came as an open roadster with removable hard top and went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz.
