Zoom Classic Cars proudly offers this beautiful Mercedes Euro
280SL. With a special ground effect package and the optional
factory 5 speed transmission, it is a rare example of this timeless
Mercedes Roadster. Finished in "Signal Red" it features a black
interior that shows very little wear. It is powered by the bullet
proof 2.8 Liter twin cam engine, developing 185 HP. Power is
transferred to the rear by the afore mentioned factory 5 speed
transmission which was a rare option. This Euro 107, as it is known
by Mercedes aficionados, is said to be one the best, if not the
best driving SL of the series. Powered by a straight 6 engine
(making the front end of the car lighter than the V8) it promoted
sportier handling and a better-balanced car. The twin cam design
put out more horsepower than all but one V8 Mercedes of the time.
The seldom found 5-speed manual transmission, provides good
acceleration and exceptional high-speed cruising ability, all while
providing much better fuel economy than the V8 cars. Considering
the above and the the lower maintenance costs of the V6 vs the V8
it all adds up to very desirable package for a Mercedes Roadster.
As an added bonus, the Euro versions featured anti-lock brakes,
which were not available in the US at the time.We are offering this
rare example at $19,900. Please call Hank with any questions at
201-317-9277 or email to [email protected] The vehicle is
located in MD.
