An Iconic Mercedes sportster, that’s better suited to cultured cruising than hair raising.

Classics, don’t come more timelessly elegant than the Pagoda Mercedes, in any setting, and these cars are perfectly capable of crossing continents without breaking into a sweat. Now, much more valuable than the R107 SL that succeeded it, Pagoda (codenamed W113 by Mercedes) values are on a trajectory that few could have foreseen just a couple of years ago.

Some eye-watering values mean tarted-up cars aren’t rare – especially ex-US examples. Many SL’s are imports from the sunshine states, where the heat has taken its toll on rubber and trim and paint. On the other hand, European left-hand drive cars are more likely to have been cherished, but as there’s little difference in values between left and right-hand drive cars, you’re better off going for one of the latter.

Despite its two-seater convertible configuration and sharp styling, the Pagoda SL is much more of a cruiser than sports car. In place of colossal maximum speed and breath-taking acceleration, the magic of this car lies instead in its refinement, comfort and superb road behaviour.

ABOUT THIS CAR

 This is a NZ New, factory RHD car.
 Mint Condition – very useable classic.
 Excellent grip, handling, seating, brakes and fuel economy.
 Brand New Soft Top
 All Vinyl redone
 Woodwork re polished
 Brand New Soft top
 Spare Wheel / Jack all with car
 Good service history.

A great investment, as values are soaring. If you’ve taken your eye off the Pagoda ball over the past couple of years, you’ll be amazed at how far and how fast values have climbed. You’ll now need at least NZD80K to secure a 230 Pagoda that isn’t a liability and we all know what restoration costs nowadays (I personally know of a 230SL, that was restored at a cost of NZD100K+ recently.)

At this year’s Essen classic show in Germany, there were numerous Pagodas for sale at around 200,000 euros – and they were finding buyers. Despite such a stratospheric – and swift – increase in values, we are convinced that the trend is set to continue.

This is a very clean example – best described as Mint rather than Concours, suitable for a lot of people out there, who are after a really good Pagoda; for those people, who have accepted that to secure a good example, they’ve got to dig deep.

TRANSPORT / SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.

Viewing is STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT only.
