  • The Paul Bracq-designed Mercedes-Benz 113 series succeeded both the 190SL and the 300SL, and made its public debut at the 1963 Geneva Auto Show. The first model, the 230SL, was a comfortable, well-equipped and compact two-seat sports touring machine that provided better performance than the 190SL. Instantly recognizable by virtue of their unique and strong detachable hardtop design, the cars were colloquially known as “pagodas”. The well-balanced chassis was designed by Rudi Uhlenhaut and based on a solid unit-body platform. Initially, magazine road testers bemoaned the relatively soft spring rates and 150 horsepower rating of the 230SL, but became believers when Uhlenhaut himself drove a 230SL to lap times that were only 0.2 seconds slower than those of a Ferrari 250GT! Furthermore, a 230SL won the prestigious Spa-Sofia-Liège rally in 1963. A very successful design, the 113 series remained in production for nine years with nearly 49,000 examples built, and it continues to be a favorite among todayÂ’s collectors. In true Mercedes-Benz fashion, the 113 series cockpit is comfortable, well-appointed and weather proof, and the carÂ’s construction and attention to detail is consistent with renowned Mercedes-Benz standards. It harnesses a 180 bhp, 2,778 cc single overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, Bosch fuel injection, automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and anti-roll bar, rear suspension by single low-pivot swing axles with trailing arms and coil springs, four-wheel vacuum-assisted hydraulic disc brakes.
    The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in stunning Light Ivory with an impeccably kept original Black MB-Tex interior and matching convertible top. It has been driven just 17,300 miles from new and it shows! This US version is fitted with all available options, including both hard top and soft top, factory air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, Becker AM/FM radio, as well as its original books and tools. This is an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire what we believe to be one of the very best 280SL’ Roadster on the market today.

    Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in "AS IS" condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no oral statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $285 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).

    In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.

    Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
