1986 Mercedes-Benz 500SL


The Mercedes-Benz was manufactured since 1954 and the designation SL derives from the German ‘Sport Leicht’ or ‘Sport Light’ and was first applied to the 300SL ‘Gullwing’ named after the upward opening doors. The term SL-Class refers to the marketing variations of the vehicle, including the numerous engine configurations spanning five design generations. The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 automobiles were produced from 1971 through to 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by Mercedes-Benz, after the G-Class. The R107 took the chassis components of the mid-size W114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the S-Class (W116). The SL variant was a two seat roadster with standard soft top, hardtop and optional foldable seats for the rear bench.

This ice blue example comes with original hard top, full service history from new and has been in dry storage for the last 10 years. Restoration work was carried out on the body, chassis and chrome completed in December, 2018. The gearbox has received a full overhaul, with steering, brakes and wheels refurbished as well as new wheels.
