The 280 SL Roadsters are without a doubt the sweet spot of the classic Mercedes-Benz model range. They remain attainable despite rapidly increasing values over recent years, in addition to being extremely stylish, and reliable enough to be used for pleasure on a frequent basis. The elegant and understated styling of these Roadsters, penned by designer and artist Paul Bracq, made the model a desirable accessory for young Hollywood celebrities in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The magnificent 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL California Coupe Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous Satin Beige Metallic over Cognac leather interior. This incredible motorcar was sold new in Van Nuys, California and remained in California all this time with only three meticulous owners.
