Of all the now long line of Mercedes SL models, it is the W113 series cars that continue to capture the imagination. With or without the sensuously dished hardtop that graced them with their 'pagoda' nickname, the Paul Bracq designed Roadsters have an understated elegance that demands a second look. This combined with memorable build quality to create one of the great motorcars of the period, the last and most powerful version of which was the 170bhp 280SL launched in 1968.
This left-hand drive example dating from 1970 was imported into the UK from Dubai in 2016 and has been in current ownership since that date. With a recorded mileage of 24,205, this one UK keeper example is finished in Light Beige with Cognac interior which is thought to be original. The 280 SL was treated to a comprehensive restoration that was completed circa 10 years ago and has been sparingly used in the time since. Accompanied by the original service booklet, warranty card, and booklet, dealer directory, import paperwork, and a V5C. Offered with factory hardtop in Tobacco, the hood requires some minor fettling due to being stored in the down position.
