1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL Seller’s Guide


1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL

First shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 as the 230SL, the W113 line was the widely popular successor to the 300SL Mercedes Gullwing – a legend even to this day. The new SL design incorporated a contemporary, bright, comfortable and spacious feel for its owners, and would see several variations throughout the years. These variations included the 230SL and the 250SL, with the last being the 280SL. The 1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL saw 7,935 units throughout its production year and was available in both a 2-door Roadster and 2-door Coupe. The 1970 Mercedes 280SL was bigger, wider and heavier than its predecessor and was the perfect auto for those buyers who sought driving comfort, road handling and quality of construction. Buyers also enjoyed having various engine options including a V-8 with either a 3.5 or 4.5-liter cylinder, or a six-cylinder engine with the capacity of 2.8 liters. Most models were equipped with an automatic transmission, and could reach a top speed of 121 mph. Today, many buyers turn to the 280SL for those same reasons.
