Description

"The very pretty and highly desirable Mercedes-Benz 250 SL was the successor to the popular 230 SL and was first introduced to the public at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. The brief production run ended a year later in January 1968 and as a result of this short run, the 250 SL is the rarest of the W 113 (Pagoda) series cars. It retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs but provided improved agility with a new 150bhp, 7 bearing engine and it also came with rear disc brakes. The range was also improved with the increased fuel tank capacity which went up from 65 litres to 82 litres. These lovely German stalwarts were offered with a four-speed automatic, a four-speed manual box or the ZF five-speed. Also, for the first time an optional limited slip differential was also available which improved the handling no end.This lovely matching numbers example is presented in white with its black factory hard top and black interior. This remarkable car comes with a full and comprehensive service history, invoices and old MoT test certificates. Amazingly, it also has its original green log book, two keys and manuals. This is one of the nicest examples of this desirable classic we have seen and is in excellent order throughout according to the owner."
