Model 230S Fintail
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. Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1963 as replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL abandoned its predecessor's four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3 litre fuel-injected six cylinder engine derived from that of the 220SE and producing 150bhp. An instant classic, the body design was all-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 230SL even managed a debut competition victory, winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer. Finished in grey with a tan interior, with just 73,000 KMs recorded this is a good opportunity to acquire a well preserved example of Mercedes class-leading executive car of the 1960s.
