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,’ enthused 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).’ It goes without saying that these were opinions the majority of commentators were only too happy to endorse. The vendor acquired this right-hand drive 280SL from Mercedes-Benz in Germany in 1969, and used it as a second car in South Africa until he emigrated to the UK in 1988. Used in this country only rarely, it is described by the vendor as in good mechanical condition, with ‘fair’ coachwork and paint. An automatic transmission model finished in white with red interior, it is offered complete with hard and soft tops, current road fund licence, MoT to 20 May 2005 and Swansea V5.
