HISTORY OF THE 1971 MERCEDES-BENZ: The 2.8 liter 280 SL was introduced in 1967 and continued production largely unchanged through 1971 when the W 113 was replaced by the entirely new, and substantially heavier, R 107 350 SL/450 SL. The previously optional oil-cooler became standard with the 2.8 liter engine. Most 280 SL cars built for the U.S. market were equipped with automatic transmission. Manual transmission cars came with either a 4-speed manual transmission or the very rare ZF 5-speed manual transmission, which is now sought after by collectors, and typically commands a 10% price premium. In the European market, manual transmission cars were still dominant. 23,885 280 SLs were produced, of which 12,927 units went to the U.S. and 5,754 to other countries outside of Germany. 1971 is considered an extremely collectible year, as only 830 examples were produced this year.
