With production from 1971 to 1989, the R107 was one of the few longest-lasting Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The R107 received a very minor update in 1972 with new rubber edged door mirrors from the W116 and a major update in 1985 for the 1986 model year. The engine options were updated in 1980 for the 1981 model year with new aluminum V8 engines from the W126 S- Class introduced in 1979, while the 2. 8-litre straight-six engine was carried over. It was updated again in 1985 for the 1986 model year with a new 3. 0-liter W124 inline six-cylinder engine and enlarged 4. 2- and 5. 5-liter V8 engines, while the 5. 0-liter V8 engine was carried over .

The R107 received its first update in 1985 with a deeper front air dam, a revised braking system with larger discs and four-piston calipers, a driver's side airbag, for the European market, catalytic converter option. The 5 mph bumpers and four round headlamps mounted on US models remained unchanged despite revised US FMVSS regulations allowing 4. 5 km/ hr bumpers and close-fitting headlamps beginning with the 1982 and 1983 model years, respectively The American model received the third brake light in 1986, mounted on the trunk. The 560 SL was only sold in the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia.

The SL presented here is a very original car with only 81, 000 miles driven. He still has all the American things installed, such as the chrome rims, thicker bumpers and the double headlights. It drives and shifts like a top Mercedes. A beautiful original Mercedes for relatively little money.
