Barons Bring Gorgeous Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda and Jaguar E-Type to Auction
Once owned by the Sultan of Brunei, these are two truly amazing drop tops.
With Drive it Day quickly approaching Barons Auctions has acquired several beautiful cars from the Sultan of Brunei. However, the two highlights of the fleet are a 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda and a 1973 V-12 Jaguar E-Type. Both vehicles were impeccably cared for, the 1964 Mercedes-Benz has only acquired 8,500 miles since 1988 and is expected to go for a pretty penny, between $94,080-$112,896 to be exact.
The gorgeous 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda was one of 19,831 made between 1964 and 1967, however far less are on the road today. The 230 SL Pagoda was powered by an inline-six making only 150 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. Still, the car’s looks far outweigh the power delivery.
The 1973 V-12 Jaguar E-Type packs a little more punch with a 5.3-liter V-12 pumping out 272 hp and hitting 60 mph in under seven seconds. The E-Type is projected to go between $75,264 and $94,080.
If both of these vehicles are out of your price range, the Spring Classic at Sandown Park will have plenty of more affordable options.
