The Mercedes 230 SL Pagoda has lived to see another day in a whole new way. A top favorite of exclusive and exquisite car-collectors, the Pagoda now undergoes a massive makeover by Carlex.

The Cabriolet looks every inch like the stylish and classy original, but with a brand-new approach. The interior has been tweaked to fit the owner’s request. Now the seats are covered in new two-tone leather made especially to look retro-chic. Wood was used extensively in the Mercedes 230 SL Pagoda as well.

A bespoke cargo space and a wooden crate, that plays the part of a picnic basket, have also been fitted onboard the car.

With much attention to detail, Carlex has recreated the vintage ambience onboard the Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Pagoda, that would surely impress even its creators, Paul Bracq and Bela Barenyi.

The Poland-based aftermarket experts decided to stay away from the 2.3-liter engine, so the power unit still develops 150 horsepower, making the cabriolet run from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 11.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 200 km/h.

The Polish experts did not mess with the beautiful exterior either, so it still keeps the sensual lines of the car presented in March 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show.
