The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 were produced by Mercedes Benz from 1971 through 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, etc. up to the 560 SL. The SLC (C107) derivative was a 2 door hardtop coupe with normal rear seats. The SLC is commonly referred to as an ‘SL coupe’, and this was the first time that Mercedes Benz had based a coupe on an SL roadster platform rather than on a saloon, replacing the former saloon-based 280/300 SE coupé in Mercedes lineup. The SLC had a shorter production run compared to the roadsters which meant that less than an eighth of the 107 chassis were built as 450 SLC’s.
This luxury Mercedes Benz coupe is very well presented and comes complete with such refinements as air conditioning, sunroof, electric windows and leather interior. Mated to an automatic gearbox, this powerful V8-engined Mercedes Benz is finished elegantly in Tunis beige metallic livery and matching brown interior. Offered at a sensible reserve, the potential for this quality Mercedes Benz coupe to offer a good investment is undeniable.
