The R107 model Mercedes-Benz, is well recognised today and it was rare to see an episode of Dallas or Dynasty in the 1980’s without an SL making a star appearance. The W107 model improved through the years with technical innovation but still managed to keep its fundamental character and identity of an up-market, high-quality sports car. Its reputation went from strength to strength. The genius soft-top mechanism which folds down out of sight under a panel ahead of the boot lid gave the car a beautifully sleek, uncluttered appearance. Of all the engine offerings the 280 remains the most sought after with the 2.8 litre engine offering plenty of power but with the advantage of less weight and this improved handling.
This Mercedes-Benz 280 SL cabriolet was originally delivered in Europe in 1978. Nicely finished in Silberblau with dark blue leather interior and matching hardtop, this is a well presented example of possibly one of the most usable and stylish modern classics available today. The SL is offered with Dutch registration papers.
