- Ultimate driver's car
- Detailed history
- Automatic gearbox

After its iconic predecessor, the 190SL, surpassed its competitors with flying colors, it was time for renewal. Mercedes joined forces with French designer Paul Bracq to give the entire SL-line a fresh new touch, and this was an immediate success. In March 1963, when the Mercedes-Benz 230 SL was presented at the Geneva International Motor Show, it caused a sensation in the automotive industry. It went down in history as a very powerful two-seater roadster that distinguished itself from its competitors due to excellent seating comfort, outstanding driving performance, and remarkable safety features. This Mercedes 280SL retains a classic red/beige color combination, reflecting its original delivery in 1970. Meticulously refurbished to the highest standards, the beige full leather interior looks as immaculate as the day it left the dealership. Additionally, all dashboard buttons are still functional. What makes this 280SL even more special is that it still has the original Becker Mexico cassette radio in it, and it works fine.

Remarkably, this car has never been restored, yet it maintains a level of cleanliness which is truly impressive. With an excellent body condition and first-class technical performance, it glides effortlessly on the road. The optional automatic 4-speed gearbox shifts with the smoothness of a new car. Often people think that there are undoubtedly costs associated with an unrestored car. Well this 280SL is proof that this is not always the case. Mercedes from this era, when cared for, will go down as one of the best and most indestructible cars in history. Evidenced by many invoices, it can be seen that this car was regularly serviced, and all technical issues were addressed to keep it in the best possible condition. It therefore goes without saying that driving this beauty is an absolute pleasure. The steering feels light, the car has power in excess, and the rock-solid automatic gearbox does its job perfectly. This is a straightforward driver's car that isn't afraid of adventure. Ready for many carefree summer drives, trips, or even as a daily driver!
