The last version to join the range entered production in 1967, the 280SL. Like the previous models the 280SL had a beautifully proportioned sports body which had two comfortable seats (a third, sideways facing seat was a popular SL option) and could be fitted with a distinctive (Pagoda Roof) Hardtop.
