When Mercedes launched the R107 series SL in 1971, as a replacement for the previous SL of the 60’s, it was to become their second longest running production model of all time, remaining at the forefront of the Marque’s line-up until its eventual replacement in 1989.
Based on the chassis of the W114 saloon, but with the engines from the larger and more powerful S Class cars, the SL was a near perfect blend of speed, refinement, safety and style, over-engineered in the world famous Mercedes-Benz style. A stylish 2 seated drop head convertible that offered occasional seating for two more passengers in the back, the car was an immediate success world-wide, thanks in part to the standard equipment of a fully lined factory hard-top that made the SL usable daily in all climates. The 500 SL used a 4,973 cc engine that produced 240 HP and 402 Nm (296 lb/ft) of torque at just 3200 rpm! The 500 SL was published by Mercedes-Benz as having 0-60 mph times of 7.4 seconds for a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).
This beautiful low mileage 500SL is presented in absolutely remarkable condition with a fully documented history including 18 service stamps and Data Card in the original maintenance booklet.
