1981 Mercedes Benz R107 280SL | SOLD

The Mercedes-Benz R107 was produced from 1974 to 1985. It is a two-door roadster with a soft top and a removable hardtop. The 280SL is powered by a 2.8-liter inline-six engine that produces 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. The car is known for its sleek and elegant design, with a long hood and short rear deck. It was also equipped with many luxury features for its time, such as power windows, air conditioning, and leather seats. The R107 280SL is a popular classic car among collectors and enthusiasts, and it continues to be a sought-after model today.

This 280 SL is a beautiful example of Mercedes’ iconic and stylish two-seater convertible in iconic silver paint. It was delivered new in April 1981 through Zung Fu Mercedes-Benz in Hong Kong. It was specified in silver with Black Leather interior. Optional extras included a factory hardtop in matching silver and air-condition.

The SL was a highly desirable car when it was new as it was the only Mercedes-Benz roadster available during its entire production and the economic boom of the late 1980’s meant that demand far outweighed supply, leading to premiums being paid for these cars. As a result, many SL’s changed hands a number of times in their lives but this car only had 4 previous owners throughout its 42 year life.

This is a truly excellent example of Mercedes’ iconic and stylish two-seater convertible in a period colour. The car is in fantastic mechanical and driving condition, with no rust or corrosion in the problem areas. The soft top presents neatly while a colour-coded hard top, allows enjoyable all-year driving.
