The new Mercedes-Benz SL series debuted at the Geneva motor show in March 1963, and the 230 SL is now referred to as the "Pagode" model due to its distinctive hardtop roof. Its successor, the famous 190 SL, was the first SL series that consciously incorporated numerous safety features. It was the first time that an SL model had offered a reinforced passenger cell, crumple zones, radial tyres, disc brakes and also optionally available seat belts. Often hailed as a design icon today, roughly 50,000 models of the "Mercedes-Benz Pagode" were manufactured during various stages of development between 1963 and 1971, now making it a truly sought-after classic car that fetches high prices. The Mercedes-Benz 280 SL from the Schuco Edition 1:87 boasts many lovingly crafted details even in this small scale and is truly a must-have for every Mercedes-Benz and HO model collection. Like all the models of the Schuco Edition 1:87, the Mercedes-Benz 280 SL is equipped with a metal body and comes in a high-quality show box.
