1965 MERCEDES BENZ 230 SL
Hendon Way Motors
The simply stunning Pagoda is one of the most iconic designs of all time. According to a statement from Mercedes Benz at the time of the Pagoda’s launch: “it was our aim to create a very safe and fast sports car with high performance that despite its sporting characteristics provides a very high degree of travelling comfort.” The result was a perfectly Franco-German, track-bred, tech gilded, boulevardier; equally happy driving the back-roads of Switzerland and cruising the beach-front of St. Tropez. Huge thanks to the patience of our driver, this shoot certainly required it. I think by the end he suspected I was having him move just because I just enjoyed the superb sound of the engine so much!
