Mercedes 560 SL R107 1986 – SPRZEDANY

Mercedes 560 SL R107 posiadał największy silnik z wszystkich roadsterów tej generacji i był dostępny jedynie poza Europą, w tym w USA, skąd pochodzi licytowany egzemplarz. Wyróżnia się aluminiową maską i pokrywą bagażnika, którą możemy rozpoznać dzięki umieszczeniu na niej dodatkowego światła stop. Czerwony lakier z czarnym skórzanym wnętrzem prezentuje się doskonale, a samochód jeździ wyśmienicie. To perfekcyjnie utrzymany wóz, zachowany w oryginalnym stanie, z przebiegiem zaledwie 58 tys. km. Mimo, że licytowany był bez ceny minimalnej, przebił wszelkie oczekiwania uzyskując 35.750 USD (ok. 135 tys. PLN).

In 1971, Mercedes-Benz introduced the successors to the W111 coupe and W113 sports models. Designated in-house as C107 and R107, respectively, they used the chassis components of the W114 sedans with V-8 engines of 3.5, 3.8, 4.2, 4.5, 5.0, and 5.6 liters. Some six-cylinder cars were also built, using 2.7- and 3.0-liter engines from 1975 to 1989.

The first SL model debuted in April of 1971 as the 350 SL, with the first U.S. models appearing in 1972, still named 350 SL but featuring a 4.5-liter engine. Unsurprisingly, the 450 SL name was adopted for 1973, and engines increasingly grew in size, all the way up to the 560 SL of 1985, including for the USA and other non-European markets, produced until 1989. This car featured the largest engine of all, as well as alloy engine hoods and trunk lids. The engine itself was also all-aluminum.

A beautiful and remarkably well-kept car, this 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL shows just 36,000 actual miles on the odometer. Finished in red, it has a black leather interior and is well equipped. Its features include an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, factory air conditioning, a Clarion stereo sound system with auxiliary speakers, and both hard and soft tops. Included with the car are books and manuals, including the owner’s manual and 1986 warranty book, as well as a spare set of keys, an original Mercedes-Benz key fob, and a clean CARFAX report.

Although nearly three decades old, this 560 SL presents like a car that is barely broken-in. A strong, straight, complete, and honest car, it has enjoyed the ownership of just two caring individuals who have attended to its every need. It is the perfect running and driving example to keep on enjoying in the comfort and style for which the R107 is famous.
