The Mercedes-Benz SL range of models have been in production for over sixty years metamorphosing from the Le Mans winning W194 of 1952 to the technologically advanced, aluminium bodied supercars we find today at Mercedes-Benz World. One thing however, has not changed over the years – its fundamental character and identity as an upmarket well-built sports car.
Backed by its racing pedigree the SL’s glamorous reputation was further enhanced by its appearance on TV when it was rare to see an episode of Dallas or Dynasty in the 1980’s without the SL making an appearance! These 3rd generation SL’s, the R107, looked ‘the part’ in all their guises – the soft-top up or down or with the Pagoda hard-top in place. The simple to use, almost genius soft-top mechanism when folded down out of sight under a panel gives the car its beautifully sleek, uncluttered appearance.
Finished in the classic combination of red with palomino leather, this lovely example has covered only 66,000 genuine miles and comes with hardtop roof. These timeless classic Mercedes Sports were built to last and needed very little in the way of maintenance. With a full service history and a recently completed MoT and Service.
