Officially presented in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show, the 230 SL represents a car with a marked personality.
Its elegant design, with refined finishes and a noteworthy engine, makes it one of the most beautiful and iconic cars in its segment.
It is a Gran Turismo capable of providing an excellent mix between comfort and driving pleasure, which in the original "pagoda" cut of the hard top, turns into an elegant coupé in the cold season.
At the ends of the front stand large headlights, incorporated into the glass fairing, like that of the 220 and 300 sedans.
The silhouette of the trunk is flat, the two small bumpers under the tail lights make it very original.
The sides are enhanced by large glass and a rather low belt line.
The interiors are very well cared for, comfortable and spacious seats.
Access to the cockpit is easy, even with the hard top, thanks to the width of the doors on which comfortable rigid pockets are made.
The "heart" of the 230 SL is a six-cylinder in-line of 2306 cc, SOHC, able to deliver a maximum power of 148 hp, positioned front with RWD traction and four-speed gearbox.
The braking system is mixed: front disc and drum on the rear.
The Mercedes 230 SL has been a great commercial success internationally, especially in the US market where it has reached its consecration.
Even today, thanks to the classic and timeless line and its ease of driving, the 230 SL remains an iconic car always coveted by collectors all over the world.
