White on Red Leather is such a classic 1960s combination, and it suits this elegant German sports car perfectly. Known for building cars with exceptional fit and finish, Mercedes was at its peak in the 1960s and the 280SL model was no exception. At its launch in 1967, its elegance, sophistication and above-standard engineering made it an instant hit.
Owned by its original buyer up until 2000 and with just 3 other owners since, this classic has been well documented since new – a rarity for cars of this vintage. Serviced by authorized Mercedes-Benz dealerships since delivery, this car has spent it’s whole life in western Canada. Not only is this a beautiful car to look at and drive, but the history and archive of original service records give this collector’s piece a story and personality that go beyond its 4 wheels. Nick-named “Pagoda” by its enthusiasts, this roadster comes complete with the removable hard-top that these cars were famous for.
Along with being fun to drive, this 280SL has great value and shows excellent long-term potential as an investment. Listed in 2011 by GQ as one of the “Ten Cars that made Mercedes-Benz”, the 280SL model represents the brand’s personal approach to building sports cars. When compared to other notable sports cars from the 1960s the 280SL makes no compromises, yet it remains at a price-point in the market that makes it very appealing and competitive.
