Description

"The iconic R107 Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster and SLC Coupé became so successful in the 1970's and 80's that it enjoyed their second longest production run. Originally introduced in 1971 in 350 SL guise with a 3.5 litre V8 engine, it spawned some eight further engine derivatives and numerous options to extend the customers’ desire for the wonderful roadster until 1989. The Roadster was always intended for luxurious top down motoring and as such, attracted celebrity ownership and a host of film and television appearances. Offering 197 bhp and a smooth automatic gearbox with a top speed in excess of 130 mph imagine cruising along French boulevards or through Beverley Hills and you will understand the target audience for this iconic SL Roadster.
First registered in 1979, the sixth year of production for the 107 series, this Mercedes-Benz looks resplendent in blue with blue seating. This SL has been in the current owner’s tenure for 21 years. The history file contains a number of old service invoices and an MoT history dating back to 1993.This autobahn cruiser is presented with a factory hardtop and original Mercedes-Benz tool kit. The car is accompanied by an MoT test certificate valid until 31st May 2019. This desirable V8 engined SL awaits a new owner to enjoy the next chapter of ownership."
