1989 Mercedes Benz R107 300SL | Under Offer


The SL Series 107, released in 1971 as the successor to the Pagoda (W113 series), established a new design line at Mercedes-Benz with the broadband H4 headlamps and the large fluted taillights. The appearance of the R107 was stylistic for the Mercedes-Benz design in the 70s. The R107 took the chassis components of the mid size Mercedes-Benz W114 model and mated them to the larger engines from the S-Class (W116).

Today, we are delighted to offer for sale this stunning 300 SL which was first registered in Hong Kong in July 1989 and presents very well and exudes elegance with white exterior in combination with the black leather trim. A very original and authentic copy, the car is powered by the more powerful and efficient 2962CC 6 cylinder engine in combination with the automatic gearbox, this is a rare find.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

The SL model has been part of the Mercedes-Benz line-up since 1954. The first generation of cars was completed in 1955 with the 190. The second generation began with the 230 in 1963 and was distinguished by its distinctive optional hardtop that earned the model its nickname ‘Pagoda top’. The factory codename for the SL launched in 1971 was R107. The Mercedes-Benz R107 and C107 were produced from 1971 through 1989, being the second longest single series ever produced by the automaker, after the G-Class. They were sold under the SL (R107) and SLC (C107) model names as the 280 SL, 280 SLC, 300 SL, etc. up to the 560 SL.

This model enjoyed an impressive build run until 1989 and over its eighteen year reign, the R107/C107 range was powered by no less than eight different engines, two sizes of straight-six unit and six versions of V8’s. Late in 1985, the 280 version was succeeded by the 300SL of which 13,742 were produced. Also in 1985, the Bosch KE Jetronic was fitted. The KE Jetronic system varied from the earlier, all mechanical system by the introduction of a more modern engine management "computer", which controlled idle speed, fuel rate, and air/fuel mixture. The final car of the 18 years running 107 series was a 500 SL painted Signal red, built on August 4, 1989; it currently resides in the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
