THE MERCEDES-BENZ R107

When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it – after all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built fewer than 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The next-generation 230/250/280SL in 1963 brought Mercedes’ sports car down to Earth, replacing both the incredible 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL.

For the next SL, Mercedes started with the chassis of the mid-size “W114/115” model and added the motors from the large “W116” S-Class. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date.

By the late 1980s – near the end of production – the third-generation Mercedes-Benz SL was somewhat dated. Although it had gotten various updates and new engines over the years, it was still fundamentally the same car Mercedes-Benz had introduced back in 1972. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand’s lineup, until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This highly original example of the Mercedes-Benz 560SL is believed to have been in California since new. The car’s CARFAX report shows consistent emission inspections in the Palmdale and Pasadena, California regions, and corroborates the mileage of just over 50,000 miles since new.

Elegantly presented in white over the original grey interior, this beautiful 560SL is complete with both soft and hardtops, books and tools. A high quality Mercedes-Benz ideally suited to open top touring, with nearly all the power amenities as a modern car, yet with the elegance and style of the classic Mercedes-Benz SL.
