"Some cars don't change, they just get better. The Mercedes-Benz 280SL, latest version of a line that began as the 230SL in 1963, is the same as ever, just better," reckoned Road & Track after testing a 280SL in 1968. "For those who value engineering finesse and high quality construction, it's alone in the field," concluded the highly respected American motoring magazine, while its manufacturer considered the 280SL, "a Grand Tourer in the traditional sense" and "a unique combination of sports car performance and saloon car comfort (a Mercedes-Benz saloon naturally)," opinions that the majority of commentators were only too happy to endorse. Manufactured in October 1969, this 280SL roadster with the desirable manual transmission is finished in Burgundy metallic with matching hardtop, black leather interior and new matching carpets. The car was thoroughly restored in the mid-1990s, benefiting from extensive bodywork renovation, the sills, floorpan and wings all receiving attention. New brakes were fitted in 1997 and the car underwent further (part) restoration and routine full servicing by a certified M-B mechanic in 2002/03 with bills for €13,000. In present ownership since 1999, the car is described as in good condition in every respect, with very good chassis. It is offered with photographic record of its mid-1990s restoration and German TÜV valid until October 2004. Dieser aufwendig gepflegte und gut erhaltene 280SL mit Handschaltung und Hardtop, ist weinrot-metallic lackiert, mit gleichfarbigem Hardtop und schwarzem Lederinterieur. Mitte der neunziger Jahre erfolgte eine sorgfältige, fotodokumentierte Revision der gesamten Karosserie und Bodengruppe. 1997 wurde die Bremsanlage grundüberholt und die Auspuffanlage erneuert. Erst kürzlich wurde eine weitere aufwendige Inspektion und Revision für €13,000 von einem Mercedes KFZ-Meister durchgeführt. Der Roadster wird mit KFZ-Brief und TÜV bis 10/04 versteigert.
