HISTORY OF THE 280SL
The 113 Mercedes-Benz platform was introduced in the summer of 1963 with the 230SL. Designed to continue the SL line from the iconic 190SL and the legendary 300SL, the new 113 SL provided a sporty driving experience with an adequate level of comfort. The iconic Pagoda shape was defined by the removable hardtop and aluminum boot that concealed the convertible top when not in use. While the large chrome grill and three pointed star in the front harked back to the previous generation of SLs, customers were enamored with the newly introduced fuel injected inline-six cylinder engine, excellent handling suspension and powerful brakes. The 280SL was first assembled in December 1967 and marked the third and final iteration of the 113 chassis. With an upgraded 2.8 liter 195 horsepower engine, the 280SL transitioned the 113 chassis from a sporty two-seater to a finely appointed, adequately powered sports roadster. In the U.S., most 280SLs received a factory 4-speed automatic transmission. Considered by some Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts to be the last classic SL, the 280SL has become a highly sought-after automobile by both collectors and motoring enthusiasts.
