Mercedes Benz W113 280 SL 1968 “Pagode”

Details

Model History

The Mercedes-Benz W 113 is a two-seat roadster/coupé, introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, and produced from 1963 through 1971. It had the hard mission of replace at the same time both the 190SL and the 300SL, combining the price of the first one with the performance of the second. It was designed by Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, who devised its distinctive, patented, slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the "Pagoda" nickname.

Exterior

The bonnet, trunk lid, door skins and tonneau cover are made of aluminum to reduce weight. The short and wide chassis, the styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch "fishbowl" headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, turn this car into a splendid piece of art.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes

Excellent suspension, with powerful brakes and radial tires give the car a superb handling.

Engine & Transmission

Inline-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection, Automatic 4-Speed Gearbox, everything in perfect shape, so you can fully enjoy the pleasure of driving one of the most charismatic cars of all time.
