Electrified Mercedes-Benz SL W113 ‘Pagoda’ by Everrati

Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati™), the leading technology company specialising in redefining and futureproofing automotive icons through the integration of cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, is setting new standards for understated, sustainable luxury with its zero emission Mercedes-Benz SL W113 ‘Pagoda’, full details of which are being revealed today.

One of the most timelessly elegant, stylish, and collectible cars of all time, examples of the Mercedes-Benz SL ‘Pagoda’ have been owned by countless celebrities since its arrival in 1963. From legendary musicians, such as John Lennon and Tina Turner, to actors, such as Audrey Hepburn and Charlton Heston, to more modern stars including David Coulthard and Harry Styles, the SL ‘Pagoda’ truly deserves its place in the automotive hall of fame.

Now, Everrati has respectfully redefined the masterpiece. Hand-built and meticulously restored to concours standards by industry-leading Mercedes-Benz specialists and re-powered with a cutting-edge OEM-grade electric powertrain completely designed, developed, and manufactured in-house by Everrati, the elegant SL ‘Pagoda’ has been hand crafted as the world’s ultimate open top, two-seater zero emission luxury grand tourer.

Like all Everrati redefinitions, EV technology is integrated sympathetically, using CAD to maximise the installation, in a manner totally in keeping with the true spirit of the original and its manufacturer. The transformation to electric power involves the optimisation of overall weight and weight distribution – keeping these important metrics as close to the donor SL ‘Pagoda’ as much as possible – while chassis response, performance and safety are enhanced, reinvigorating the vehicle’s character. Structural integrity is also retained, and the conversion is completely reversable, maintaining value and options into the future.

For the redefined SL ‘Pagoda’, two bespoke versions of Everrati’s proprietary OEM-grade electric powertrain are available, enabling customers to tailor their vehicle to specific use cases. As standard, the electrified SL ‘Pagoda’ comes with a 54.4kWh battery, enabling 160 miles of zero emission range and 0-60mph in sub-8.0 secs. Prioritising even greater performance and distance, a ‘Touring’ version is also available, featuring a larger 68kWh battery allowing an extended range of more than 200 miles and a sub 7.0 second 0-60mph time.

Both versions have the same 300bhp cutting edge electric motor, a limited slip differential and regenerative braking allowing ‘one-pedal’ driving when the opportunity arises. AC and DC fast charging is also included, allowing owners to top up en-route quickly should they need to.

Inside, the redefined interior of the SL ‘Pagoda’ can be specified with a super soft luxury leather with a matt finish and haircell grain from Everrati partner Bridge of Weir, maker of the world’s lowest carbon leather for the automotive industry. Covering the luxurious and supremely comfortable seats, as well as the dashboard and door panels, this opulent material is available in beautiful light Vanilla, Cashmere, and Fawn, to the darker Fastnet and Black hide colours.

Hides more in-line with those available in period Mercedes-Benz SL ‘Pagoda’ models are also available – and are demonstrated on the first customer commission. Other stand-out details include custom-designed dials, showing vital information whilst maintaining an ‘original’ appearance. Combined with optional modern conveniences such as seamlessly integrated, Bluetooth® controlled high end audio, heated seats, the Pagoda is fully equipped for a short cruise along the coast or a longer touring journey.

Offering an exquisite blend of heritage, luxury, sustainability, and future-proofed technology, the SL ‘Pagoda’ redefined by Everrati presents a unique proposition. As car custodians, Everrati stays true to the quality of the vehicle yet provides an OEM-grade powertrain upgrade that exceeds the performance specifications of the original enabling unparalleled enjoyment and fun for multi-generational owners’ recreation and preservation.
