The Mercedes-Benz 420 SL, also known as the R107, is a classic and iconic luxury convertible produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1971 to 1989. It was introduced as a successor to the 280 SL and was later replaced by the R129 in 1990. The 420 SL was powered by a 4.2 litre V8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The 420 SL was a popular choice among the wealthy and celebrities during its production run, and it remains a sought-after classic car today. Its sleek and timeless design, combined with its powerful engine and luxurious interior, make it a true classic that is still admired by car enthusiasts around the world. Overall, the Mercedes-Benz 420 SL is a classic luxury convertible that represents the pinnacle of Mercedes-Benz engineering and design from the 1970s and 1980s.
This delightful example of the German classic was originally registered in June 1988 and presents immaculately in dark blue metallic with a contrasting grey leather interior. This V8 engined example of these ever popular convertibles features rear seats and is fitted with a wind deflector. The vendor commissioned his trimmers to replace the seats and add blue piping, which although not a factory option looks stunning. With a no expense spared approach to the works undertaken the car is now one of the finest examples we have seen. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until March 2024 and a file containing the original stamped service book and various bills and receipts. This wonderful example is just waiting for the sun to shine to be fully enjoyed.
