Do you think it would have possible to put a more stylish R107 300Sl Mercedes-Benz together in 1988?

This model was supplied from new with the sublime colour combination of a metallic straw-coloured exterior complimented with beige leather upholstery interiorly. Furthermore the car has a number of tasteful and handy options. It has automatic transmission, an ambient thermometer, a hardtop, ABS, headrests, heated electric wing mirrors, an illuminated vanity mirror in the sunvisor, rear bench, central armrest, climate control, electric windows, tinted and heat reflective windows, headlight wash and wipe system, catalyst and a black hood.

It was originally a Swiss supplied car that found its way to the Netherlands in 2010. Since then it has only had one owner who used the car to his hearts content whilst at the same time taking very good care of it.

The car still looks fantastic. Both paint and bodywork are in particularly good order. The bodywork has nice and thin, correctly aligned panelwork. The straw-coloured metallic finish, the brightwork and the hardtop are all in wonderful condition. The car stands proudly on its authentic rims with correctly sized Michelin tyres. The hood is also in very good shape and is a neat and perfect fit.

The inside is just as alluring. The beige leather is in peak condition and is pleasing to the eye. The wooden dashboard inlay and the carpets are both also in a very fine state. Always a talking point in an older Mercedes is wether it still has its original radio: we are pleased to rapport this one does. The R107’s dashboard is a subtle affair and thanks to the climate control it is nice and neat.

Mechanically this Mercedes-Benz has been exceptionally well maintained, so it doesn’t come as any surprise to hear that the 190 Ps, 3.0 litre straight-six engine runs quite smoothly. The engine is attached to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The R107 has a top speed of 210 Km/hr and a lot of torque. Matters such as the brakes and suspension have also always been properly maintained, thereby contributing to the very sturdy driving characteristics of this 300SL. In short this R107 300SL is built like a tank, everything seems to have been built to be everlasting.

This Mercedes-Benz comes with a complete car wallet and many receipts from the last eleven years.

This is not just a lovely European supplied Mercedes-Benz R107 300SL on the outside, it is also a superb car to travel in.
