THE MERCEDES-BENZ 230SL

Launched at the Geneva Auto Salon in March 1963, the 230SL – or W113 in Mercedes-Benz lan-guage – was a very different sort of sporting car then its fire-breathing predecessors. Intended as the replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL abandoned its predecessor's four-cylinder engine in fa-vor of a 2.3-liter fuel-injected six-cylinder SOHC engine, producing 150bhp. The new engine was derived from that of the great 220SE. The Paul Bracq-penned body was an all-new, stylish design which became an instant classic. Beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes, and the choice of a four-speed manual or automatic transmission. Top speed was in excess of 120mph.

MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular 230 SL was built in 1967. It is a desirable manual transmission car and the car has been meticulously maintained and serviced.

Fully documented since 1995, the numerous maintenance records and parts acquisitions reflect the care and commitment of its caretakers over the years. The result is a car is in superb mechanical and cosmetic condition.
In early 2016 the consignor, an avid Mercedes Benz enthusiast, acquired the car. Although the car was in very good condition he chose to have a new interior installed, including new seat pads, a new OEM Windshield, and interior wood. The car was sent to noted SL expert Dan Caron in Sarnia, Ontario for a full mechanical service. During this time the instruments were rebuilt by North Hollywood Speedometer.

Anyone who has driven a well set-up manual 230SL will attest to their roadability and that they are an excellent drivers car. In fact at the introduction in 1963 Chief Engineer Rudolph Uhlenhaut set a lap time of 47.50 seconds at Annemasse Vetraz-Monthoux race track a mere .20 seconds slower than a 250 Ferrari driven by Mike Parks. Well presented and finished in its original color of dark red, and contrasting parchment interior, the opportunity to acquire this stunning 230SL should not be missed.
