MERCEDES-BENZ 280SL ROADSTER/COUPE
2-door 2-seater roadster/coupé.
Third and final derivative of car first seen in 1963, this time with 2.8-litre single cam/170bhp engine, disc brakes all round, and choice of soft-top or steel hardtop. Four-speeder, or even automatic. Quick - up to 120mph - but still inflicted with swing-axle rear suspension. Replaced by bigger, beefier 350SL.
