Introduced in early 1971, this impressive two-seater sports car replaced the 280 SL. The body and chassis of the 3rd generation SL was considerably heavier and longer than its predecessor but it still showed a slight resemblance. The standard transmission provided a top speed of 130mph and a very respectable 0-62mph in 8.8 seconds. As with the previous generations of SL’s, the vehicle came as an open roadster with a removable hardtop roof. The R107 body shape went on to become one of the longest running styles from Mercedes-Benz, remaining in production until 1989 with some 13 variants during the production run.

This delightful example of Mercedes-Benz's 'Little Black Dress' is presented in metallic Silver with matching blue interior complete with new carpet set. Accompanying this Mercedes-Benz is an MoT test certificate valid until 30th May 2019 and the all important hard top is presented in lovely condition.
This vehicle is supplied with a V5C registration document and original book pack, owner's manual, maintenance booklet with 10 service stamps and numerous documents and old MoT test certificates. Finished in a very appealing colour combination this 380 SL is sure to be a very popular drop-top among our auction attendees.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
