Vehicle Description

The Mercedes-Benz W 113 Is A Two-Seat Roadster/Coupe, Introduced At The 1963 Geneva Motor Show, And Produced From 1963 Through 1971. The Lead Designers Were Paul Bracq And Bela Barenyi, Who Created Its Patented, Slightly Concave Hardtop, Which Inspired The "Pagoda" Nickname.

Like the other W113 cars, the 280 utilized a monocoque chassis, with front suspension courtesy of coils and wishbones, while the rear incorporated a single-pivot swing axle and transverse springs set up to compensate for camber. Four-wheel discs provided braking power.
