- A desirable 300 SL recently inspected by the SLSHOP
The Mercedes-Benz R107 SL model was launched in 1971 and continued a tradition of two-door sports tourers from the world famous German manufacturer that dates back to 1954. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent all-round suspension. The success and popularity of the model is borne out by the 237,287 units that were produced during the cars impressive 18 year build run.
This stunning example of the facelift 300 SL is presented in Ivory with beige MB Tex trim, Mercedes-Benz's extremely durable alternative to leather, and looks new. This example recently inspected by the SLSHOP was supplied new with optional extras including electric windows, rear seats, paint work protection, heat insulating glass and a contrasting dark brown hood. Boasting just three owners from new, this 300SL has received a new speedometer which means the total mileage stands correctly at 60,529. This is documented in the vehicle's history folder and the original speedometer is present with the car. Within the original wallet we find the owner’s manual and 11 service stamps coupled with invoices throughout the 1990s and 2000s. The 300 with its 3.0 litre straight-six engine has long been seen to be the best combination of power and drivability for the R107, and this example comes with the added comfort of being inspected and maintained by the country’s leading Mercedes-Benz SL specialist. A unique, low mileage example with years of enjoyment potential. A fine machine in all round excellent condition.
