Unveiled in 1963, the W113 ushered in a new era for Mercedes-Benz’s SL sports-roadsters.
The complex and costly 300 SL was no longer viable, and the 190 SL had been criticized for prioritizing style over performance.
While the W113 shared its underpinnings and fuel-injected six-cylinder engines with others in the lineup, the crisp and faultless styling of Paul Bracq and Bela Barenyi established the model as an instant classic.
The unique concave hardtop earned the nickname ‘Pagoda’ which stuck through the car’s entire production run.
The W113 established the blueprint for nearly all future SL models, combining luxurious trimmings, impeccably sophisticated style, and engineering excellence in a motorcar meant to deliver its occupants safely, rapidly, and in unrivaled comfort and style.
