STORY

The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda is an iconic vehicle produced by the German automobile brand Mercedes-Benz in the 1960s. The official name of the model is Mercedes-Benz W113, but it is better known as "Pagoda" due to its unique, outward-curving hardtop, reminiscent of the shape of a Chinese temple roof.

The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1963. It was the successor to the 190 SL and the legendary 300 SL. The vehicle was designed by Paul Bracq, a French automobile designer.

The 230 SL was equipped with a 2.3-liter six-cylinder engine that produced 150 hp. The Pagoda was the first Mercedes-Benz production car with a fuel-injected engine. The car's design featured a low beltline and large windows, which provided good visibility and a pleasant driving experience.

The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda has achieved status as a sought-after collector's vehicle over the years. Its timeless design and innovative technology helped make it a classic in automotive history.

PERSONAL STORY

This pagoda comes from a very prestigious collection in Vaduz and was part of this collection for over two decades. Here it was carefully preserved and authenticated.

This German classic has been enriching our collection for a long time.

The Pagoda is the perfect all-round classic car. A convertible when the weather is nice, a coupe when the rain comes through. This vehicle also likes to show off its iconic hardtop on the streets.
