The 280SL 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 exquisite 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in classic and desired Astral Silver Metallic over a black interior and matching folding convertible top. Fitted from the factory with every available option, including rare Frigiking air conditioning. This investment-grade original California car has been meticulously maintained from new and has never left the state of California until our acquisition, which would explain its extraordinary condition. Over the years I've owned more 280SL Roadsters than any one individual in the country and I can say with certainty this is without question one of the nicest original, well-preserved examples I have seen. We are proud to offer this numbers matching original California 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster to the most sophisticated investor, collector, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this iconic motorcar.
