A classic tourer with an additional dose of durability and finesse.
Mercedes-Benz have a reputation for comfortable touring cars, it's been well established prior to the R107 SL making its first appearance in 1972. The brand's virtues were strengthened by the SL's ingrained quality, ease of use and mechanical hardiness. All this has made it into one of the easiest to own classic tourers today. Robust engineering and durable materials go a long way into making the SL a safe choice for those who like to travel in style without the uncompromising nature of other open-top classics of the era. Powered by the surprisingly frugal yet flexible 2.8-litre straight-six engine, the car can still hold its own on modern roads. With decent accommodation, the availability of a hardtop roof, and excellent parts availability, the SL continues to flourish in popularity.
Currently with its fourth female owner, this 1984 280 SL has only seen ~8,000 carefully driven miles over the last 20 years, and has an impeccable service history. Stored indoors throughout during this time, the car has seen plenty of attention to ensure its runs just as it should.
