Lot 270 - 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC
|Sold - £3,962
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.
This nice left hand drive example is presented in white with grey/black interior which has been reupholstered in herringbone and looks very presentable indeed. The car comes with electric windows, cassette radio, some previous servicing receipts, old MoT test certificates and its UK V5 Registration Document. These 2+2 German luxury touring sports coupés are very sought after and being offered at No reserve, this example is surely one to go for!
Interested parties should note that this car has developed an electrical fault which now prevents it from starting. Also, it has partially seized on its brakes and cannot be driven away and will need transporting.
