The Mercedes-Benz SL variant was a two-seat convertible/roadster
with standard soft top and hardtop as well as optional folding
seats for the rear bench. The SLC (C107) derivative was a two door
hardtop coupé with normal rear seats. The SLC is commonly referred
to as an 'SL coupé', but in reality it was an S-class coupé,
replacing the former saloon-based 280/300 SE coupé in the
Mercedes-Benz line-up and was every bit the luxurious touring car
it was designed to be.
