"Introduced in early 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280 SL. The body and chassis of the 3rd generation SL was considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor but it still showed a slight resemblance. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generations of SL’s, the vehicle came as an open roadster with a removable hardtop roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during the production run.This delightful example of Mercedes-Benz's 'Little Black Dress' is presented in metallic Silver with matching blue interior complete with new carpet set. Accompanying this Mercedes-Benz is an MoT test certificate valid until 30th May 2019 and the all important hard top is presented in lovely condition.This vehicle is supplied with a V5C registration document and original book pack, owner's manual, maintenance booklet with 10 service stamps and numerous documents and old MoT test certificates. Finished in a very appealing colour combination this 380 SL is sure to be a very popular drop-top among our auction attendees."
