Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1963 as replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL is a landmark model which founded a sports car dynasty that would prove an enormous commercial success for Mercedes-Benz The 230SL abandoned its predecessor's four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3-litre fuel-injected six derived from that of the 220SE and producing 150bhp. An instant classic, the body design was entirely new while beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes and a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

Top speed was in excess of 120mph. The Mercedes-Benz 230SL was owned by countless film stars and celebrities, becoming one of the iconic sports cars of the 1960s, and even managed a debut competition victory in the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally. Christened 'pagoda top' after their distinctive cabin shape, these SL models were amongst the best-loved sports-tourers of their day and continue to be highly sought after by collectors.

Our car is a greray value example, driving as it should, and quite sorted. The colours are great, it is UK registered, all EU taxes paid and can be exported anywhere with ease. It is perfect for your holiday home or for continental cruising! This is possibly your last chance to buy a Pagoda in this price bracket.
