Although many changes were made throughout the life of the M129 SL body shape, the major changes were only to be an increase in engine capacity - and although the 250SL's power was almost identical to the 230SL, its larger capacity motor did have more torque.

Safety improvements also led to 4 wheel disc brakes being fitted and a softer "pressure absorbing" steering wheel being fitted.

The 250SL was only in production for one year, and was soon replaced by the larger engined 280SL.

This has lead to some debate amounst Mercedes fans as to which model is the more collectable, the superior performing 280SL or the low volume 250SL. Certainly from a rarity point of view, the honours must go to the 250SL.
