The R107 and C107 Mercedes-Benz SL variants have long been revered amongst classic car devotees, being built to exacting engineering standards and with a subtle air of sophistication. These cars were built from 1971 through to 1989, the second longest single series ever produced by Mercedes-Benz after the G-Class. The SL (R107) was a two-seat convertible with standard soft top, optional hardtop and optional folding seats for the rear bench. Its sibling, the SLC (C107) or ‘SL Coupé’ derivative, was a two-door hardtop coupé with normal rear seats.  It was launched at the Paris Motor Show and signalled a shift in management thinking at Stuttgart about what made a successful luxury coupé. Sporting a longer wheelbase and sufficient interior room for four, the SLC was a sleek two-door car that combined the seating advantages of a four-door saloon with the style of a sporty coupé.  

Originally registered on 1st May 1973 this SLC is finished in light blue metallic and has a velour interior. We are advised the V8 engine starts and runs well. These cars are from the era when Mercedes-Benz were known for building the best quality cars in the motor industry. Supplied with a V5C and offered for sale without reserve.
