About the car

The W 113 is a two-seater convertible cabriolet from Mercedes-Benz which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1963. It was intended to replace both the 190 SL and 300 SL models. Thanks to its optionally available inwardly curved hard top, it gained the nickname of Pagoda. A total of 48,912, with optional manual or automatic gearbox, were built in the 230 SL (1963 – 1967), 250 SL (1967) and 280 SL (1968 – 1971) models.
