The era

In the 60s, awareness grew for better safety measures on the road. Mercedes was one of the pioneers of this cause and stepped up its research and development to improve the passive safety of vehicles. The re-sults were presented at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show when pioneering safety features were incorporated in their SL series: rigid passenger compartment, defined crumple zones front and rear, telescopic steering column with impact absorber, an interior with no sharp edges and corners, radial tires and seat belts as op-tional accessories. Incidentally, the nickname Pagoda emerged due to the shape of the concavely- arched hardtop, a concept aimed at improving the available interior space.

The condition

It is a very elaborately restored automobile. During the restoration special emphasis was placed on the original specifications of the manufacturer. The result is a vehicle with a new car character. Due to the special restoration services, this vehicle stands out clearly from the normal classic carmarket as well as from the other classic cars with the state mark 1. The work carried out is extensively documented, the Mercedes-Benz data card and an individual valuation report are available.

The performance

With the 2.8 litre-engine it is the dynamic representative of the Pagoda series and still easily re-aches its 200 km/h top speed. The solid, stiff construction, the proven, long-lasting technology, the class look, the good running performance and its workshop friendliness can bring joy to a future owner for decades to come. Its running performance, its safety concept and the especially comprehensive extra equipment make it an ideal classic touring car, but it could also enrich a collection. With its optimum condition value increases are inevitable.
