Description

- Registered in Italy in 2018 by the current owner, the Mercedes 450 SL version for the American market, first series, has covered approximately 132,900 miles and is equipped with CRS (Certificate of Historical Relevance) certification.
- The US market has always been the reference market for the prestigious SL of the R107 series; more than 2/3 of production was destined for the United States. The main features that distinguish it from the European version are the 4 round headlights, more prominent bumpers, air conditioning and better standard equipment. In the rare metallic olive green colour with tone-on-tone interior in green, equipped with both hard and soft top. Bodywork repainted years ago and in good overall condition, as is the interior; a protective shell on the dashboard.
- Mechanics in working order, always followed by a workshop specialized in vintage vehicles. Complete service made in 2021, used very little, but always kept in working order and ready to use.
- The American version of the beautiful SL R107, being more widespread, has very reasonable purchase prices and offers all the advantages and exclusivity of the top Mercedes spider. The roar of the V8 and torque are exciting and the 180hp is more than adequate to make the SL very enjoyable to drive. The 4-headlamp front gives the car its distinctive character. The hard top transforms it into a comfortable coupe with elegant lines.
-The Mercedes must be collected from the province of Pescara.
