Known History

 

History

 

The 280SL combined superb handling that was described in period as “leechlike” with a track five inches wider than a similar era Porsche and eight inches wider than that of the respected E-Type Jaguar. “Fully controlled power drifts are this car’s bag in the corner” so stated Motor Trend magazine. In turn, you could stop with total authority with massive disc brakes at all four corners. Road & Track magazine said the steering system was “the best available anywhere.” The lavish cockpit was considered, in similar tests of the era to be unanimously rated as “the most comfortable” for similar cars of the era. Additional praise was heaped upon the 280SL with Road & Track further stating that “the ride, over all sorts of roads, is fantastic.” “The limousine sports car” moniker was attributed to Motor Trend when the car was new.

 

This car

 

This Pagoda is magnificently finished in beige grey over a cognac interior (original colour combination). It was completely and thoroughly restored two years ago. Its restoration was carried out with a very high degree of perfection, having been rebuilt from A-Z, with photos supporting this process. The car is presented in pristine condition, working perfectly and with only approximately 1.000km since the restoration.We have several maintenance records and receipts from along the years, including the car’s purchase receipt, dating back to 1970. The original Mercedes-Benz datacard is also available. This exemplar is offered with both its soft top and hardtop.
