  • Description

    The R107, where to start? Perhaps that is the start, the fact it will, every single time. Unlike many contemporary sports cars. Bullet proof engines and mechanicals. Actual water tight hoods, simple ergonomics, comfort and luxury, all the things’ we Brits seldom managed to roll into one for a top-down driving experience much past the 1950’s! Everyone loves the side profile, the buttery smooth ride and the timeless flat decked lines, this one is one of the rarer 380 variants, with the V8! To my research only around 200 SLs of any description are still on the road that were registered in 1984, so I’d venture that this low mileage and perfect colour combo car will be one of the best!


    Flick the key and she springs into life as a 46k mile Mercedes V8 should. Almost silent and silky smooth, drop the selector into drive and you’re ready for one of the best cruisers the world has seen to usher you through more admiring glances than you’d get in the wildest modern supercar, universally loved this really is the quintessential German sports tourer. Even when the sun isn’t shining, you have the option of the soft top / factory hardtop in great condition to use the car in winter should you dare!


    I remember hearing around 10 years back from Quentin Wilson that the SL hasn’t ever lost any of its value from the day it was delivered and will always be a safe purchase if you buy a good car, the same still applies her, an incredible car, with the best colour combination, the plaid seats and a nice history file to support the low mileage, whether this is a present for a loved one, a car to tick a European tour off your list or another undisputed classic for the collection, you can’t go wrong.

  • Technical specification

    Coming to us from a regular client, who has not only cracking taste in cars, but a rather wonderful collection. We were instructed to give the car a full inspection prior to sale and any issues have been addressed already, so the new owner will know that it is as simple as to turn the key and enjoy this wonderfully presented classic. Beautiful paint and brightwork, an amazing interior and a lovely clean engine bay too, it really wants for nothing to be enjoyed or shown.

    The paintwork was given a full two stage machine polish and a layer of wax to protect it, giving the as new shine you see in the photos, it really is as good as they get. Totally rust and rot free underneath and mechanically spot on too. Driving without fault and having had a full service, along with fresh fuel hoses as a matter of precaution too.


    The car has its full Mercedes book pack present, along with an abundance of invoices dating back to 1994 in the history file. The service records who very strong until that point, but the cars minimal mileage over this period have meant that the car was serviced by its then owners or at local specialists as per the invoices as opposed to main dealers, though it is safe to say that they’ve done a great job until this point, as we didn’t need to do very much at all to get the car to our exacting standards. The MOT history is also almost perfect too & the car will come supplied with a full years MOT for the new custodian.


    Your chance to cruise off into the sunset in perhaps the all-time #1 sports car of any era.
