The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 was produced from 1971 through to 1989 and were described by many as one of the best looking cars Mercedes-Benz produced to date. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names. The R107 replaced theW113 SL-Class in 1972 and was replaced by the R129 SL-Class in 1989. The SLC replaced the W111 Coupé in 1971 and was replaced by the C126 S-class coupe in 1981. The SLC derivative was a two door hardtop coupé with normal rear seats. The SLC is commonly referred to as an 'SL coupe' but in reality it was an S-class coupe replacing the former saloon-based 280/300 SE coupé in the Mercedes-Benz line-up. In September 1977, the 450SLC 5.0 joined the line. This was a special version of the big coupé, featuring a new all-aluminium five-litre V8, aluminium alloy doors, hood and boot
Presented in Silver Blue with a blue leather interior, this much underrated SLC was formerly owned by a collector and used as a daily driver, it comes with a large quantity of MoT test certificates to support the recorded mileage as being correct and a file of correspondence and service/parts invoices.
