The Mercedes Benz SL, Sport Light, was first launched in 1954 and caused a sensation with its Gullwing doors and motorsport derived technology.
The third generation SL, the R 107, followed the Mercedes Benz SL tradition of front engine, rear wheel drive with an incredibly smooth, luxurious & now powerful package. The 500sl was manufactured between 1980 and 1989. It’s all aluminium 5.0 V8 produced 237 BHP with 402 nm torque which powered the 500sl to a top speed of 225 km/h
The 500sl’s advanced driving dynamics, solidity and ease of use were in a different league compared to its W113 Pagoda predecessor. The values of the W113 Pagodas have increased steadily over the last ten years with the values of the R 107’s following due to the popularity of 1980’s modern classics or “Youngtimers” as they are also known.
The 500sl is a modern classic icon and the respected flagship Mercedes Benz of the era with the heritage of Mercedes Benz adding unrivaled credibility in the collector car world
