The R107 Mercedes SL has to be considered one of the greatest examples of German engineering.
The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL is a well-known icon and has become something of a default choice for those looking for dependable quality open-top motoring. When compared to other historic cars of a similar vintage, the strong performance, smooth ride, and excellent build quality are what set it apart. By the virtues of its careful ownership profiles, unstressed simple engines and excellent parts availability, their reputation for reliability as well as genuine provision for comfort and ergonomics makes them almost default options for the thinking person's idea of an open-top classic car.
This 1982 280 SL comes with a detailed and regular service schedule and has seen extensive cosmetic work over the last 20 years, including the renewal of the bulkhead. The car also will be legible to road tax-free status in a couple of months and comes with an excellent hood, original factory colour hardtop, as well as a smartly-presented exterior.
