Back in 1963, the all-new Mercedes-Benz 230SL represented a huge improvement over the outgoing 190SL roadster. Its 150 hp, six-cylinder engine replaced the 190’s four-cylinder, and it was gradually increased in size to the most desirable 180 hp, 2.8-liter engine in late 1967. The bulbous bodywork of the 190 was replaced by Paul Bracq’s crisp, angular design, with its unusual concave hardtop roof that led to the famous “Pagoda” sobriquet. After the W113’s demise in 1971, the new R107 generation of Mercedes SL would be produced for the next 20 years.
Tomini Classics is proud to present the ultimate Mercedes 280SL restomod, equipped with a 4.3-litre, 340hp AMG powerplant and modern amenities like ABS, air conditioning and many other refinements in braking, suspension and steering that make this car the ultimate everyday classic. Much like Singer did to the Porsche 911, Mechatronik combines timeless looks and modern dynamics, reimagining and re-engineering a classic from the ground up.
