1969- Mercedes- Benz 280 SL
Meet the Mercedes-Benz 280 SL hardtop, a star of the European Series by Mattel! This beauty was introduced in the 1969 Hot Wheels lineup and exclusively crafted at the Hong Kong factory, gracing collectors for at least two years.
Inspired by the 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL with its potent 2.8-liter fuel-injected 6-cylinder engine, Mattel's version wows with an opening hood revealing a meticulously detailed 6-cylinder engine. The iconic Mercedes-Benz "tri-star" symbol can be spotted on the front grille, hood, and rear deck.
This model boasts blue-tinted windows, red-painted taillights, and a detailed interior featuring a matching steering wheel. What's more, most colors of this car also came with a black-painted roof, which is becoming increasingly rare and valuable among collectors.
