Description
 
The SL series from Mercedes-Benz that was introduced in 1963 continued the designation of the 300SL and 190SL, but was in fact an entirely new concept. It was one that brought more emphasis on luxury and comfort while retaining the SLs essential sportiness, a mixture that Mercedes engineer Fritz Nallinger called motoring happiness. The W113 was an immediate success for Mercedes, but it would prove to be more popular and longer-lived than most would have believed, culminating in the 280SL in 1968 Powered by a fuel-injected 2,778cc single overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, the 280SL developed 180 brake horsepower and 193 lb-ft of torque. The unit body/frame two-seat coachwork was tight, solid and attractive and today, a generation after it was built, still communicates style and discerning taste. Add the incredibly high standards to which these cars were built, and they make an ideal and highly usable classic. This very pretty 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL is finished in red with black leather interior with black carpets, brand new black cloth top, automatic transmission, correct Becker radio, color-coded full hubcaps and Michelin tires. The paint, chrome and interior are all strong, and the engine bay is well detailed and very tidy. Also included is all of the original Mercedes literature that came new with the car. This solid, gorgeous 280SL is perfect for anyone looking for a classic SL to enjoy on the weekends. The 280SL is just as pleasant, as comfortable and as beautiful today as it was over forty years ago. This example demonstrates that handily.
