Mercedes Benz 500sl (R107)

1982 - 128 000km - R 525 000

The R107 series Mercedes Benz SL was an instant success with an elegant design, advanced driving dynamics and solid build quality. Ease of use was on a superior level compared to its predecessor, the W113 Pagoda, which meant that the R107 series SL’s were truly daily use sportscars. The 500sl was manufactured between 1980 and 1989 and was powered by an all aluminium 5.0 V8 which produced 237 BHP.

The R107 series Mercedes Benz 500sl is a modern classic, an icon of the 80’s and the respected flagship Mercedes Benz of the era with the heritage of Mercedes Benz adding unrivalled credibility. For this reason, examples of high quality are sought after by, not only collectors, but also by those who want to experience the timeless quality of Mercedes Benz sportscars of this era.
