1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Pagoda Coupe

While it wasn't the thinly disguised race car that was the 300SL, the 230SL would go on to become a masterpiece in its own right. The design by Paul Bracq would go become an icon and cement the tri-point star as a luxury legend in the US. The solid chassis, powerful brakes, and superb fuel-injected inline-six gave the car good performance for its day, and its image was helped by wide adoption among celebrities and other elites. The 230SL also represented a leap in automotive safety — it was the first car designed with a rigid passenger compartment with designated crumple zones, an industry first. This 1965 example comes in white over a black interior, with an immaculate body and recently recovered interior. The original hardtop covers a working soft top underneath, and a recent mechanical refresh means this classic is ready to drive.
