Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this low mileage example of the very stylish Mercedes-Benz R107, which has remained in long term ownership for the past 25 years. This vehicle is highly original, and has always been garaged, which is evident in its exceptional condition. The colour combination is classic, and certainly suits the SL extremely well.
When Mercedes launched the R107 series SL in 1971, as a replacement for the previous SL of the 60’s, it was to become their second longest running production model of all time, remaining at the forefront of the Marque’s line-up until its eventual replacement in 1989.
Based on the chassis of the W114 saloon, but with the engines from the larger and more powerful S Class cars, the SL was a near perfect blend of speed, refinement, safety and style, over-engineered in the world-famous Mercedes-Benz style. A stylish 2-seater drop head sports convertible that offered occasional seating for two more passengers in the back, the car was an immediate success world-wide, thanks in part to the standard equipment of a fully lined factory hard-top that made the SL usable daily in all climates.
Classic Cars website wrote, “If you’re after a stylish, sharp-suited roadster to potentially use all year round, then look no further. The R107 SL was improved continuously throughout its 18-year lifespan, with the result that the later the car, the better it is – run-out models from 1989 are most buyer’s top choices. They continued, “The golden rule is to buy the best car you can afford. Happily though, once you’ve found the right car for you, R107s can be enjoyed in much the same way as a modern Mercedes-Benz, with all the reliability you’d expect in that regard but with infinitely more character and personality.”
Supplied new by Robinsons Autostar Garage, Mercedes-Benz, Norwich, in May 1989, the 300 SL has benefitted from regular dealer servicing, and comes complete with its original leather handbook, driver’s manuals, Gemini alarm and Pioneer radio manuals. The history file contains invoices, historic MOT certificates, V5s and road tax discs. To retain this quantity of historical information is really first-class. The car will also be sold with a 12-month comprehensive warranty. Available to view now at our London showrooms.
