MERCEDES-BENZ 280 SL
A superior display of power coupled with sporty elegance: the Mercedes-Benz Pagoda presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 caused a sensation not only among experts. The 230 SL was the worlds first sports car with an innovative safety body, from 1967 to 1971 the further developed 280 SL came off the production line. The two-seater Roadster is launched with unique comfort, exeptional performance and unprecedented driving safety for a sports car. Visually, the removeable coupé roof designed by Paul Braque and arched inwards is reminiscent of the curved roofs of asian temples and the "Pagode" was born. BRABUS is now reviving this legend with the unique 6-star restoration.

The BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration
Thousands of hours of labor, the expertise from more than 40 years of experience with Mercedes-Benz cars, and an unconditional love of detail: That is what distinguishes a BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration. At the end of this elaborate process are historically authentic automotive works of art – in a quality as if the classic had just come off the production line. A solid investment with an incomparable fun factor.
From the first to the last screw
The start of any BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration of a Mercedes-Benz classic always is the complete disassembly of the base vehicle in our workshop. All parts are inspected and indexed in the process. Unserviceable parts are discarded. Others that are suitable for reconditioning are returned to new condition by our specialists with utmost care. All missing, damaged or worn out components are replaced with newly manufactured genuine Mercedes parts – from the first to the last bolt. An unparalleled approach in the restoration of vintage cars.
New age shine
The automotive gem is brought back to life with maximum precision and deep devotion: This starts with the chemical removal of all paint. The engine and transmission are thoroughly overhauled, the interior is elaborately restored, the body is given a cataphoretic dip primer coat as can be found on modern production vehicles and then undergoes a comprehensive rust protection treatment before receiving its final paint finish. Once all work steps are completed, the Mercedes classic once again shines in its new old luster.
GRADE A+ CERTIFICATE
After the completed BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration, Classic Data, the leading experts’ organization for vintage cars, awards the vehicle a grade of A+. In addition, because of the unique quality of the work and its true-to-the-original character, the vehicle is given a supplementary certificate attesting it "new car character." The car is like new – the BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration even surpasses the original delivery condition with regard to the quality of workmanship and rust protection. A classic you can only find in this quality at BRABUS Classic.
Of course, a BRABUS Classic 6-Star Restoration is in line with the "matching numbers“ principle: The restored vehicle came off the production line at the time with exactly the same engine and transmission that it is equipped with now. This also applies to all other parts and major assemblies. In addition, the paint color and the color of the interior plus many more details correspond to the original version.
