The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL was a two-seat roadster produced from 1963 to 1971. It was introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show and replaced both the legendary 300SL (W198) and the 190SL (W121). The model is well known for its distinctive, patented, and slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the “Pagoda” nickname.
All W113 SL models were equipped with a straight-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, boot lid, door skins, and tonneau cover were made of aluminium to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes, and radial tires gave the W113 superb handling for its time. The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch “fishbowl” headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star, paid homage to the already legendary 300SL roadster.

The simple yet elegant lines of the W113 SL strike a stunning pose against our studio backdrop. The glistening metallic blue paintwork presents beautifully all round and looks particularly eye-catching on a Mercedes of this vintage. The overall finish is to a very high standard, with all brightwork retaining a fantastic mirror shine. The front and rear lights are also in perfect condition and the black mohair soft-top is free from any signs of wear or damage, even to the rear window.
