One of my favorite understated cars of the 1960s:
• 4-speed automatic gearbox
• Mercedes’ formidable works rally driver Eugen Böhringer won the 6,600km 1963 Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in a specially prepared 230 SL
• Pagoda ownership was more about understated style and long-distance holidaying.
• Fuel-injected, SOHC six-cylinder engines came as standard, with the first cars’ 2,308cc (230 SL)
• The latter (280 SL) 2,778cc engine finally gave the elegant car a little more ‘go’
Simple, well-proportioned, and built like a bank vault:
