$10



A superb and rare photo of the magnificent Mercedes-Benz 250 SL of 1967, photographed during its official introduction in the same year.



This magnificent photograph shows one of Mercedes ‘ most famous sports cars in a very stylish way. The Mercedes-Benz 250 SL debuted in 1967. It was part of Mercedes’ W 113 model series that consisted of the 230 SL, the 250 SL and the 280 SL. They were produced from 1963 through 1971. They were sold as the "padoga roof" SL Class. The W 113 replaced the W 198 SL-Class in 1963 and was replaced by the R107 SL-Class in 1972. All models boast an inline six-cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel motors. All are rear-wheel drive, but are also equipped with independent rear suspension, a feature that greatly improved road handling. Most of these early SLs were sold with both the removable hard top and a soft top in the so-called "Coupe/Roadster" configuration, but there was also a "California Coupe" version available that came with the removable hardtop but no soft top. In these models, the soft top well (between the passenger compartment and trunk) is removed, and a drop-down bench seat is installed in its place. While the SLs are relatively heavy compared to other similar roadsters, weight was reduced in part by the use of aluminum panels for the trunk lid, front hood, tonneau cover and door skins.



The 250 SL


The 250 SL was basically a one-year model, 1967, although many were sold in, and titled as, 1968 model year cars. This model is the rarest of the W 113 series of SL cars. The main changes were the use of a 2.5 liter motor with seven main bearings instead of four, and addition of rear disc brakes. The 250 SL retains the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SL's but provides significantly improved performance, especially given the engines wider power band. The 250 SL was also available with a ZF 5-speed manual transmission that was available through 1970. Of the 5,196 250 SLs built, 3,808 cars were exported (1,791 of which to the USA).
