The Attractions

If your taste in classic cars includes pleasant rides in a comfortable spider, the R107 is all you'll ever need. Elegant, impeccably built and equipped with a range of powerful engines, there is an SL to suit almost every taste.

The cars destined for America received the biggest engines, including the 4.5-litre M116 V8. Thanks to the brand's renowned quality, cars from drier climate states are usually well preserved and are often chosen for repatriation to Europe.

This is one of those cars, a 1978 450SL in an understated dark blue colour. It is complete with factory hard top, new fabric roof and newly restored interior and is in excellent condition both inside and out. It is equipped with beautiful 'Mexican Hat' wheels and looks elegant and ready to travel.
