  • MOTIKON is proud to announce that we currently have five specimens of the desirable Mercedes-Benz 280 SL W113 in restoration. The cars will be restored to their former glory, with the utmost regard for originality and usability.

    The model, more commonly referred to as the Pagoda, was developed under the watchful eye of none other than Fritz Nallinger and Rudolf Uhlenhaut and is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models produced.

    Penned by the celebrated Paul Bracq and Béla Barényi, the W113 is one of the true motoring icons of the 20th century. It was unveiled at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, and its new Germanic design starkly contrasted with the more rounded designs of the time.

    At launch, the W113 was twice as expensive as the Jaguar E-Type, indicating the tank-like build quality and refinement that the Pagoda offers to this day. It is one of the most sought-after collectors’ cars in recent years.

    The W113 is well-liked amongst enthusiasts for its combined sporting and grand touring characteristics. All five of our cars are in the sought-after 280 SL iteration, which finally gave the W113 the power to match its sporting prowess.

    The cars are reborn into nearly the same condition as on the day they rolled out of the factory in Sindelfingen, with minor modern improvements such as electronic ignition. All five of our Pagodas are equipped with the well-suited fluid-flywheel automatic gearbox.

    Our cars will be completely renovated with a new interior, paint, and an engine overhaul, and they will receive a complete EU specification conversion. Additionally, several upgrades will be made, all to maximize reliability while retaining originality.

    Two of the Pagodas can be configured to your liking, with delivery taking place during 2023. The cars will be available to view at our showroom in Uppsala, Sweden, and we are able to assist you with all your practical needs.
