There are plenty of new cars to see at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, but even in such a significant event it is the old stuff that are the coolest. If you don’t believe that just pop by Brabus’ booth and check out this Mercedes 280 SL Pagoda next to their modern creations.
This amazing Mercedes 280 SL Pagoda by Brabus Classic will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show as an example of what the Classic department of the German tuner is capable of. Working with Daimler’s own classic division, these guys can turn the clock back on any old Mercedes and make it showroom fresh.
Powered by a six-cylinder 170 horsepower engine, the 1969 Mercedes 280 SL Pagoda is possibly the classiest of the classic Mercs, with the exception of the SL Gullwing, of course. Brabus cars have zero kilometers on the clock after restoration and feature all the original equipment, including fabric soft top, leather seats, Becker Europa radio, mechanical antenna, all-original precious wood trimming, and 4-speed gearbox.
As for the pricing, a Pagoda, or as some say Pagode, these days amounts to a piece of jewlery, with big diamond in it, owned by some royalty. It is only going to appreciate in time. That is why the 249,000 EUR price tag is not that bad!
