Mercedes-Benz 250SL w113 SL Pagode + Hardtop '66 1966

Allmän beskrivning : The original 300SL established the SL name, but it was the family of SLs, starting with the 1963 230SL, that made it big business for Mercedes. Effectively replacing the 190SL and 300SL, the '63 230SL was about the same length as the 190SL, but about the same width as the 300SL and, like the 300SL, powered by a fuel-injected six-cylinder engine. It was plusher than the 190SL, but less expensive than the lavishly detailed 300SL, and so civilized that it was the first SL to be offered with air conditioning and an automatic transmission. With its square cut lines, the 230SL set the styling idiom for subsequent Mercedes products throughout the '60s. But it was the optional hardtop, which dipped at the center, that was the car's most distinctive feature. It was designed to maximize the height of the side windows to improve visibility and ease getting in and out of the car. The result was a roof that looked like a pagoda, and that became the name that stuck with the car. Like the 190SL, the 230SL's chassis was strictly conventional (for a Mercedes). The suspension consisted of double wishbones up front and the rear still had those somewhat nasty swing arms. The body was mostly made of steel, except for the doors, hood and deck lid, which were aluminum. Mercedes also claimed that this new SL was the first sports car to feature a rigid cockpit protected by front and rear crumple zones (which the company had pioneered on its sedans). It was the first passenger car to have an alternator rather than a generator and the first sports car with an automatic transmission (conveniently overlooking that the first Corvette in 1953 was offered only with a two-speed automatic). ower for the 230SL came from a slightly enlarged version of the 2.2-liter OHC straight six then powering the maker's mid- and full-size sedans. Displacing 2.3 liters and breathing through Bosch mechanical fuel injection, it was rated at a full 170 horsepower. The manual transmission was a conventional four-speed, but the optional automatic used a fluid coupling instead of a torque converter and functioned as a clutchless semiautomatic. The 230SL was a sensation, attracting not just men but — thanks to the automatic transmission, elegant appearance and tasteful appointments — women. It wasn't really a sports car as much as a relentlessly practical (even the trunk was large) two-seater of grace, luxury and competence. And Mercedes didn't tamper with it much over the next eight years. 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. 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. The main change was the use of the 2,496 cc (2.5 L) M129 II engine. The wider power band of the 250 SL resulted in noticeably improved performance compared to the 230 SL.

om Mercedes-Benz
År 1886 byggde Karl Benz Benz Patent Motorwagen allmänt betraktas som den första bilen. Lite visste han det var att vara i början av världens mest kända biltillverkare. -Mind Du satsningen finansierades av hans hustru Bertha Benz.

Inte alltför långt Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft grundades av Gottlieb Daimler och Wilhelm Maybach började marknadsföra sin bil 1901 använder nu kända namn: Mercedes (spanska för skänk från ovan), som valdes efter deras distributör Emil Jellinek dotter.

För att göra en lång historia kort, Daimler fusionerades 1926 med Benz & Cie., Blev Daimler-Benz och anta Mercedes-Benz som sin bil varumärke

Även anses av vissa konservativa sanningen är faktiskt tvärtom, Daimler-Benz historia är fylld med "firsts": Honeycomb radiator, float förgasare, fyra hjulbromsarna 1924, (även om Duesenburg Model A rapporterades att idrottsliga dem så tidigt som 1922 ), första dieseldrivna personbilar 1936, Mercedes-Benz 260 D, första direkt bränsleinsprutning i Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (väl inte riktigt så liten 2-takts Gutbrod hade faktiskt den första direkt bränsleinsprutning), fram och bak deformationszoner ie. säkerhetscell av Béla Barényi patenterades 1951 och introducerades i "Ponton" -modellerna, Anti-bromssystem (ABS) erbjöds först på W116 450SEL 6.9, första produktions krockkuddar ... och listan kan göras lång.

Under sina 100 + år har Mercedes producerat mer än en skälig andel av ikoniska bilar; SSKL, 710 SSK Trossi Roadster, 770K Grosser, 540K Spezial Roadster, 300SL Gullwing, W100 600 Pullman, W111 280SE 3,5 Flachkühler, w113 230SL Pagoda, w109 300 SEL 6,3, W201 2,3-16 Cosworth för att bara nämna några.

Man får inte glömma de berömda Silverpilarna (Silberpfeile) antingen W 25, W 125, w154, w165, w196 som alla var mer än kapabla att kastar sina motståndare på banan.
