The Mercedes-Benz W 113 roadsters, designed by Paul Bracq, were produced from 1963 through 1971. Their distinctive "pagoda" hardtop roof, designed by Béla Barényi, gave them their contemporary nickname. The W 113 SL replaced both the legendary 300 SL (W 198) and the 190 SL (W121 BII), and it was in turn replaced by the R107 SL. All models feature an inline-six cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection using a mechanical pump system adapted from the diesel motors. All are rear-wheel drive, but are also equipped with independent rear suspension, a feature that greatly improved road handling. While the SLs are relatively heavy compared to other similar roadsters, weight was reduced in part by the use of aluminum panels for the trunk lid, front hood, tonneau cover and door skins. These SLs were typically sold with a soft top and an optional removable hard top, the so-called "Coupe/Roadster" configuration. A 2+2 was introduced with the 250 SL "California Coupe", which had a rear bench seat instead of the soft-top.
