Highly desirable when they first launched, the Mercedes Benz SL models still remain as much sought-after classics to this day. Though not as powerful as the 300SL, or as curvaceous as the 190SL, the 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SL was well balanced, a high performer, and an exciting daily driver. Thirty years later, many parts for these models are still available directly from Mercedes Benz, and many owners continue to use these quietly confident vehicles as their everyday-driver. Only 830 units were made in the last production year of the Mercedes 280SL, however over the course of production approximately 23,885 were released. The United States version of the 1971 280SL shared standard features with the European models that included a tachometer, four wheel disk brakes with power booster, three point seat belts, manual windows, wood console box between two front bucket seats, and much more.
