The Mercedes-Benz W113 roadsters. designed by Paul Bracq. were
produced from 1963 through to 1971 and were known as the 'pagoda
roof' SL. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with
multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted
from the diesel motors. Rear-wheel drive configuration was
complemented by independent rear suspension. a feature that greatly
improved road handling. Most of these early SL's were sold with
both the removable hardtop and a softtop. In 1960. Ballinger
eventually proposed to develop a completely new 220 SL design based
on technology from the W112. This led to the W113 platform with an
improved fuel-injected 2. 3 litre M127 inline-six engine and the
distinctive 'pagoda' hardtop roof. The 230 SL made a remarkable
debut at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 where
Nallinger introduced it as follows; "It was our aim to create a
very safe and fast sports car with high performance which. despite
its sports characteristics. provides a very high degree of
travelling comfort. "

This 1965 lefthand drive Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda fitted with a
manual gearbox was supplied new to the USA and remained in
California until 2009. It was then imported to France and. shortly
afterwards. is believed to have been restored. Finished in red with
matching hardtop and black softtop all in excellent condition. the
interior has tan leather seats and tan carpets also in very good
condition. This 230 SL is supplied with a French registration
document. a French transfer document. a UK MoT test certificate
which expires in February 2017 and. if the car is to remain in the
UK. a NOVA certificate will be issued. Christened 'pagoda top'
after the distinctive roof shape. these SL models are amongst the
best-loved sports cars of their day and the desirable manual
versions remain highly sought after by collectors.
