More recently seen cruising the Croisette at Cannes and winding along the Haute Corniche above Nice, an iconic Mercedez-Benz 280 SL Pagoda will be auctioned at the Classic Car Auctions June Sale at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, near Leamington Spa, on 10th June, 2017.

Driven only occasionally, the 2.8 litre engine is in good running condition with just 95,900 Km on the clock (59,600 miles) indicating its rare use over 47 years. The car has just recently been imported to the UK and the bodywork, paint and trim are in almost pristine condition. Its gleaming metallic paintwork is complemented by a dark brown hardtop and brown leather interior.

Supplied with manuals, service book and the original bill of sale, the Pagoda has a reasonably good history file; very good until the mid-nineties. The car is left-hand drive with a manual gearbox and has a sale estimate of £50,000 - £55,000.

'It's not often that such a cared-for, elegant, family-owned car comes to the market, especially with such an aura of glamour,' says consignor Nigel Gough, classic car specialist, Classic Car Auctions. 'The exterior of the car is in such beautiful condition and I expect many bidders will fall in love with it at first sight. It's a lovely example of sixties sophistication and elegance.'

The Classic Car Auctions Sale at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, CV31 1XN, commences with an afternoon viewing on 9th June, 2017 with the auction starting the following day, June 10th, at 12:30pm.
