The very pretty and highly desirable Mercedes-Benz 250 SL was the successor to the popular 230 SL and was first introduced to the public at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. The brief production run ended a year later in January 1968 and because of this short run, the 250 SL is the rarest of the W 113 (Pagoda) series cars. These lovely German stalwarts were offered with a four-speed automatic, a four-speed manual box or the ZF five-speed. Also, for the first time an optional limited slip differential was also available.
This left hand drive example was registered new in 1967 and is offered with automatic transmission. Presented in metallic yellow paintwork with a contrasting blue factory hard top and dark blue interior, the paintwork retains a deep shine as does the chromework, and the interior is in good order although there are some age related blemishes throughout, as you would expect for a car of this age. Offered with an MoT test certificate valid until April 2023, the current UK V5C registration document and sundry invoices. These are sought after models and totally restored examples are fetching six figure sums in some instances.
