Officially presented in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show, the 230 SL represents a model 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 of comfort and driving pleasure, which in the original "pagoda" shape of the hard top, transforms into an elegant coupé in the cold season.
At the ends of the front stand large headlights, incorporated into the glass fairing, similar to that of the 220 and 300 sedans.
The shape of the trunk is flat, the two small bumpers under the tail lights make it very original.
The sides are enhanced by large windows and a rather low waistline.
The interiors are well cared for, the seats are comfortable and spacious.
Access to the passenger compartment is easy, even with the hard top, thanks to the width of the doors on whose internal walls there are convenient rigid pockets.
The “heart” of the 230 SL is a 2306 cc straight-six, single overhead camshaft, capable of delivering a maximum power of 148 hp, positioned at the front with rear wheel drive and four-speed synchronized gearbox.
The braking system is of a mixed type: disc at the front and drum at the rear.
The Mercedes 230 SL was a great commercial success internationally, especially in the US market where it reached its consecration.
Even today, thanks to its classic and timeless line and its ease of driving, the 230 SL remains an iconic car always coveted by collectors around the world.
