THE LEGEND WHICH IS THE MERCEDES-BENZ SL R107 ROADSTER SPORTS CAR WAS PRODUCED BY THE MERCEDES-BENZ MARQUE FROM 1971 UNTIL 1989, BEING THE SECOND LONGEST SINGLE SERIES EVER PRODUCED BY THE AUTOMAKER AFTER THE G-CLASS. THE R107/ SL IS A STRIKING CONVERTIBLE WITH A DETACHABLE HARDTOP ROOF. DURING ITS PRODUCTION RUN THE SL WAS THE ONLY SPORTS ROADSTER OFFERED BY MERCEDES-BENZ. THE SL (R107) VARIANT WAS A 2+2 SEAT CONVERTIBLE ROADSTER WITH HARDTOP AND CONVERTIBLE SOFT TOP CONCEALED BEHIND THE REAR SEATS AND A HINGED VALANCE COVER. THE 350 SL HAS A 3. 5 LITRE V8 ENGINE. IN ESSENCE IT WAS AND REMAINS THE ULTIMATE GRAND TOURER !

THE BEAUTIFULL EXAMPLE OFFERED HERE IS FINISHED IN UNMARKED DEEP SURF BLUE METALLIC WITH EXCELLENT BRIGHTWORK, BOTH OF WHICH GIVE OFF A MAGNIFICENT SHINE. THE " MEXICAN HAT " ALLOYS ARE LIKEWISE IN GREAT CONDITION FITTED TO MATCHING TYRES WITH AMPLE TREAD. BOTH THE HARD AND SOFT TOP ARE IN GREAT SHAPE, WATER AND WIND TIGHT. THE INTERIOR IS A VERY PLEASANT PLACE TO BE, CLEAN & UNCLUTTERED WITH QUALITY FINISHES FROM THE FLOOR TO THE ROOF LINING.
