Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and remaining in production until 1971, the Mercedes W113 “Pagoda” got the nickname from the slightly concave hardtop designed by Paul Bracq. The 280 SL’s inline six-cylinder 2.8-liter engine develops and impressive 170 BHP and was paired to either a 4-speed automatic or the manual gearbox with 4 or five forward gears.
The Pagoda’s timeless elegant design and exceptional ease of use make it popular amongst both car collectors and those entering the collector car world. In addition, these models are well supported by Mercedes Benz and model specialists with a vast network of suppliers.
This example is a 1968-year model car with the 4-speed automatic transmission. It underwent a full restoration by German Autohaus (a respected Mercedes Benz specialist in Bryanston) approximately 10 years ago. It was resprayed and trimmed in black a few years later for a previous owner and has been managed by our storage division over the last eight years.
It has been fastidiously maintained and is one of the best 280SL Pagoda examples in South Africa.
This Mercedes Benz 280sl Pagoda is available for viewing at the Crossley & Webb showroom in Gardens Cape Town
