MODEL HISTORY

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a grand touring car manufactured by Mercedes since 1954.

The designation SL derives from the German Sportlich-Leicht, (English: Sport Lightweight).

The original idea was suggested by American importer Max Hoffman, who perceived a market for a toned-down Gran Prix car tailored to affluent performance enthusiasts in the booming post-war American market, which remains the primary market for the vehicles.

The 250 SL was introduced at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show.

Production had already commenced in December 1966 and ended in January 1968.

The short one-year production run makes the 250 SL the rarest of the W 113 series cars.

The 250 SL retained the stiffer suspension and sportier feel of the early SLs, but provided improved agility with a new engine and rear disc brakes. Range also improved with increased fuel tank capacity from 65 L (17.2 US gal) to 82 L (21.7 US gal).

Like its predecessor, the 250 SL was offered with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and 4-speed or ZF 5-speed manual transmissions.

For the first time, an optional limited slip differential was also available. Of the 5,196 250 SLs produced, more than a third were sold in the US. [WIKIPEDIA]
