The 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in its stunning factory correct color combination of Anthracite Grey with a matching removable factory hardtop over a black interior with matching black folding convertible top. It was sold new in January 1970 by Imported Cars in Greenwich, Connecticut, and has been under meticulous care since. In 2014, the Pebble Beach Concours winning specialists of Manns Restoration were commissioned to perform a full restoration with over $100,000 invested during the process. This 280SL presents wonderfully today, displays 49,000 documented miles on the odometer and is still propelled by its numbers matching drivetrain. A plethora of original documentation accompanies this classic Mercedes-Benz including its original books, tools, service and restoration invoices. We are extremely proud to offer this 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and wonderful restored condition.

The 113 Mercedes-Benz platform was introduced in the summer of 1963 as 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. The large chrome grill and three pointed star upfront harked back to the previous generation of SLs while customers were enticed by the 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 generation of the 113 chassis. With an upgraded 2.8 liter 195 horsepower engine, the 280SL marked the 113 chassis transition 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 and air conditioning. Considered by some to be the last classic SL, the 280SL has become a highly sought-after automobile by both collectors and motoring enthusiasts.
