When it was introduced in 1963, the Mercedes-Benz 230SL two-seater marked a huge improvement over the outgoing 190SL roadster. For one thing, it boasted a 150 hp six-cylinder engine, instead of the 190’s four-cylinder. Surrounding that was a crisp, angular design, with an unusual concave hardtop roof that led to the sobriquet “Pagoda Top”, by which the model has since been known. It led to a successful dynasty that would be produced until 1971 with engine displacement gradually increased throughout the run to the most desirable 2.8-liter 280SL.

While not intended as an out-and-out sports car, Eugene Bohringer succeeded in winning the rugged Spa-Sofia-Liege Rally in the 230SL’s competition debut, which Sporting Motorist called “the sort of debut one would expect from the Stuttgart factory.”  Mostly, though, the pagoda top SLs became the choice of celebrities and the wealthy, more likely to be seen cruising sunny coastal roads, or parked in front of trendy restaurants and grand hotels, than covered in mud with rally numbers on the sides.

The car on offer is the “California Coupe” model, so named because it is fitted with a detachable hardtop, but not with a soft top. The black leather interior is in good condition, with a rear fold-down “kinder seat.” Recently tuned up, this roadster is fitted with the most desirable 2.8-liter, fuel-injected, 180-horsepower six-cylinder engine, promising 0-60 mph in 10 seconds and a top speed of 120 mph.
 
With the preferred four-speed manual transmission, instead of the more common automatic, some enterprising motoring is possible. The black paint is excellent and the panel fit typically precise. With only 22,378 original kilometers, this uncommon black on black 280SL is ready for some spirited sprints or a casual cruise around town.
