History of the Mercedes W113

1963 is perhaps one of the most important and exciting years for new automobiles. Not only was the Porsche 911 presented for the first time in 1963, no, also the beautiful convertible W113 during the Geneva Motor Show. Due to the optionally available, inwardly curved hard top, the SL was quickly given the nickname "Pagode". This convertible was the successor to the 190 SL and 300 SL. It was a great success for Mercedes, because a total of almost 50,000 units had been delivered by the end of production in 1971. The W113 gradually came to the stores as the 230, 250 and later also as the 280 SL. The new SL sees itself as a sports two-seater with high performance, the best driving behavior and well-maintained comfort. It is not surprising that he proved himself in one of his first outings during the legendary "Spa - Sofia - Lüttich" rally and drove home victorious with Eugen Böhringer / Klaus Kaiser. The design comes from the legendary Paul Bracq and it still delights customers to this day. The distinctive masculine lines with the Mercedes star emblazoned in the middle characterize the unmistakable SL face. The bonnet has a slight, additional curvature in the middle to provide enough space for the standing six-cylinder. Even then, extensive safety measures were introduced with the SL, including a stiffer passenger cell, crumple zones, later safety telescopic steering column, seat belts and an impact absorber in the steering wheel. The SL series was also equipped with a dual-circuit brake system and front disc brakes, gas pressure shock absorbers and radial tires.

History of the 230 SL offered here
The Mercedes 230 SL offered here is very special and almost unique. According to the Mercedes Classic Center, it was first delivered to Mozambique. In addition to the color combination ivory 670, the first owner ordered the extremely rare and expensive 5-speed gearbox with a rear axle ratio of 1: 4.08 and km display (code 230). During the turmoil of the "Carnation Revolution" in the middle of the 70s, this Mercedes then made it to Portugal and was sold there and driven by the 2nd owner for a few years. This SL was decommissioned at the beginning of the 1990s. In 2013, the Scuderia Sportiva Colonia had the opportunity to purchase this Mercedes Benz through a friendly middleman in Portugal and gradually subjected it to a complete "nuts & bolts" restoration. Now completed, this Mercedes convinces with its elegant and original color combination. The engine and the gearbox are of course "matching". All work has been carried out professionally and appropriately and the new owner can look forward to an almost brand-new convertible with a unique history. The BECKER Radio that is missing in the pictue, is meanwhile installed.
