The R107 had a daunting task, to replace the popular SL Pagoda model.
The 280 SL was produced in about 25.000 units.

As for the suspension, a modern independent wheel front end with articulated wishbones, coil springs and stabilizer bar was chosen. At the rear, the solution of the rear axle with oscillating arms was abandoned in favor of a diagonal arm scheme, also with coil springs and stabilizer bar. Typically Mercedes the rest of the mechanical approach, which included: rear-wheel drive, power-assisted ball circulation steering and self-ventilated disc brakes on all wheels.

The relatively long wheelbase for a 2-seater spider (the rear bench, in fact, could accommodate a maximum of one bag), or 246cm, also contributed to improving driveability.

Produced in versions 280, 300, 350, 380, 420, 450, 500, with displacements from 2746cc up to 4973cc, and powers from 177CV up to 245CV.
