The Mercedes-Benz R107 series sports cars were produced between 1971 and 1989, when replaced by the R129 series SL-Class, with around 240, 000 built during that period. They were offered with a number of different engine options - initially just a V8, then a smaller capacity straight 6 as well.

The R107 used the chassis components of the midsize Mercedes-Benz W114 saloon series, but in a shorter-wheelbase, 2-seat, convertible/ roadster style with standard soft-top, and optional hardtop. The body style did not materially change from their introduction in 1971 through to the end of production in 1989.

The 300SL model was available from September 1985, fitted with a 3. 0 litre straight 6 engine, Bosch fuel injection and a 4-speed automatic transmission. The car offered here was registered new, in Jersey, in September 1987. Essentially in the hands of only 2 owners since that date, it has covered less than 19, 000 miles and really can be described as being in an ‘as new‘ condition.

With a full dealer service record and having covered a very low mileage, this car runs and drives exactly as it should, with the solid feel of a near-new vehicle.

Having been garaged and cosseted throughout its life, the bodywork is in immaculate condition with hardly a blemish to betray its age. The Arctic White paintwork is near perfect in every respect. The underside of the car is very clean with only a few small spots of surface rust. The engine bay is tidy and very presentable with the bonnet sound-deadening lining freshly replaced. The hardtop is in excellent condition, as is the folding hood which appears not to have been used previously.

With such limited use, as might be expected, the interior is in near-pristine condition. The blue leather seats are unmarked with only the slightest patination; the dashboard and doorcards are in excellent shape; even the carpets display very little sign of use. The interior of the hardtop is spotless.

Although this Mercedes is actually 35 years old, its original unmarked condition would suggest it had only been around a couple of years at most. To find a classic car like this is not an everyday occurrence. As such, it offers a rare opportunity to acquire a desirable SL Class roadster with a very low mileage and in as near as possible ‘new’ condition – visually stunning and fully functional in every respect.

The car is currently Jersey registered and we can assist with shipping and importation processes if required.
