OVERVIEW

The Mercedes-Benz W 113 is a two-seat roadster introduced at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, and produced from 1963 through 1971. It replaced both the 300 SL and the 190 SL.

The W 113 SL was developed under the auspices of Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger, with lead designers Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, who created its patented,[3] slightly concave hardtop, which inspired the "Pagoda" nickname.

All models were equipped with an inline-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, boot lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminum to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combined with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires a first for Mercedes, gave the car superb handling for its time] The styling of the front, with its characteristic upright Bosch "fishbowl" headlights and simple chrome grille, dominated by the large three-pointed star in the nose panel, paid homage to the 300 SL roadster.

The cars are easy to drive, but with a refined quality and glamorous film star appeal which makes them appeal to the stylish everywhere.
