History

In 1963 the Mercedes-Benz 230 SL, internally dubbed 'W 113', was displayed to the public as a replacement for the 190 SL and the legendary 300 SL. Both had been extremely popular automobiles. The 230, 250, and 280 SL comprised the third generation of the Super Leicht, meaning Super Light. The 230 SL was able to continue the proud tradition established by its predecessor by doubling the sales rate when compared with the 190 SL models best year.

The 230 was a revolutionary design for the Mercedes SL model line, dressed in elegantly squared surfaces and proportions and offered as a GT two-seater roadster or coupe. It was a drastic restyle when compared to it predecessors. The 230, 250, and 280 SL were powered by a inline-six cylinder engine and outfitted with front disc brakes and a single pivot independent rear suspension. The 230 SL was capable of 125 mph and was available with either an automatic or 4-speed manual transmission. It was the first time an SL had been offered with an automatic transmission. A third version was introduced in May of 1966 with a 5-speed gearbox.

It was not only a fast car but a safe car with its use of deformation zones located in the front and the rear. The roadster version even had a collapsible hood. Production continued until 1967. During its final year of production there were 135 examples produced. Entire production was nearly 19,400.
