Description

The Mercedes-Benz 280SL was a car introduced in the 1969 Hot Wheels series.

Mercedes-Benz introduced the 280 SL in 1968. The car sported a 2.8 litre fuel-injected 6-cylinder engine which produced 170 hp and a top speed of 125 mph (~200 km/u). 

The Hot Wheels version has an opening hood with the 6 Cylinder engine underneath. The Mercedes-Benz logo can be found on the hood and trunk lid. Early versions had Delrin bearing style suspension, then later changed to cap style. As this model was only made in Hong Kong, all production pieces have blue tinted glass (only prototypes have been found with clear glass). The interior came in dark or white. Because the hood opens, the 280SL is often found with a paint chip in the center of the hood where it bangs into the cowl when opened.

The European-only releases of this casting featured a black painted roof.

The Mercedes-Benz 280SL was re-released in the 1973 lineup with enamel paint.
