The Geneva Motor Show in March 1963 was the scene of a remarkable and universally acclaimed premiere: With the 230 SL, Daimler-Benz presented a new sports car that was to replace two models of the previous sales program. The newcomer had a difficult legacy to compete - and not only because his two predecessors, the 190 SL and the 300 SL, had been extremely popular and successful right from the start, and the 300 SL had become legendary during his lifetime. Much more serious was the fact that both types, despite all the family resemblance, represented fundamentally different vehicle concepts that were difficult to reconcile. With the new model a middle course was taken: The 230 SL, internally called W 113, was neither an uncompromisingly tough roadster nor a meek boulevard sports car, but rather a comfortable, two-seat touring car with high performance and optimum driving safety. Apart from the wheelbase - the magic value of 2400 mm had been taken over unchanged - the new SL had virtually no similarities with its two predecessors. Nevertheless, the W 113 was not a complete redesign, but its technical concept largely corresponded to the 220 SE; For example, the shortened and reinforced frame floor system of the tail fin limousines including front and rear suspension has been used. The engine had also been developed from the 2.2 ltr. Unit of the 220 SE; by drilling to 2.3 ltr., increasing the compression and using a six-stamp injection pump, the power could be increased to 150 hp. In addition to the standard 4-speed manual transmission was, for the first time in a SL model, available on request, a 4-speed automatic transmission. The third variant was added in May 1966 by the Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen (ZF) related 5-speed manual transmission. Less than a year after its presentation, the 250 SL has already been replaced by a new model of the 280 SL. In the course of the market introduction of the new middle-class types not only the saloons, coupes and convertibles of the upper class, but also the SL received a 2.8 ltr. Engine. The engine variant used in the 280 SL mobilized 10 hp more than the basic version of the 280 SE thanks to a camshaft with changed timing. Compared to the 250 SL had the performance increased by 20 hp and torque by 10%. Externally, the 280 SL was apart from the nameplate, only to distinguish the modified wheel covers of its two predecessor models.

About this car: Completion and delivery to the United States in 1968 before the car is sold on October 18, 1968 to Mr. Edmund R. Halsey of Wilson, Connecticut. The purchase price with retrofitted radio and air conditioning was $ 8,793. The car remained until the early 90s, owned by the Halsey family, but in the meantime moved from the east coast to California. Insurance certificates and various bills from California are still available. According to American Title and various calculations can be understood that the car had its first owner change in 1996. The new owner, John Roberts keeps the car until 2013. In the same year, the sale to Holland and the immediate resale to Germany. In the following 2 years, the car including the hardtop, was be fully restored to the highest standard. Extensive restoration documentation and a valuation report provide detailed information.
