The Mercedes-Benz 280SL was considered to be a thoroughbred sporting machine that isn’t stark on accommodations or cramped for space. It didn’t make you pay for soul-stirring performance with ringing ears or stiff joints on the body after a spirited drive. It was widely touted as being a civilized sports car.

The 280SL combined superb handling that was described in that period as “leechlike” with a track five inches wider than a similar era Porsche and eight inches wider than that of the respected E-Type Jaguar. “Fully controlled power drifts are this car’s bag in the corner” so stated Motor Trend magazine. In turn, you could stop with total authority with massive disc brakes at all four corners. Road & Track magazine said the steering system was “the best available anywhere.” The lavish cockpit was considered, in similar tests of the era to be unanimously rated as “the most comfortable” for similar cars of the era. Additional praise was heaped upon the 280SL with Road & Track further stating that “the ride, over all sorts of roads, is fantastic.” “The limousine sports car” moniker was attributed to Motor Trend when the car was new.

This stunning 280 SL “Pagoda” is an originally French car that has been fully restored to a notable level of perfection (9/10). The restoration process was thorough and the car has been properly stored and preserved ever since. It has both the soft top and the hardtop.
