  • The 280SL Roadsters are without a doubt the sweet spot of the classic Mercedes-Benz model range. They remain attainable despite rapidly increasing values over recent years, in addition to being extremely stylish, and reliable enough to be used for pleasure on a frequent basis. The elegant and understated styling of these Roadsters, penned by designer and artist Paul Bracq, made the model a desirable accessory for young Hollywood celebrities in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

     

    The magnificent 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous Dark Red over a Black interior with a black folding convertible top. This investment-grade example has been the subject of a complete restoration by Marque specialists to show quality standards. This is an original one-family owner car that is fitted with all available options, including rare factory air conditioning! Over the years, I have owned more 280SL Roadsters than any one individual in the country and this example is one of the nicest we’ve seen in years. I personally believe the investment potential of this iconic motorcar will grow beyond your imagination. We’re proud to offer this incredible motorcar to the most particular collector, investor, or enthusiast who aspires to own one of the best!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
