Do not miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless Mercedes convertible! This is a NO RESERVE auction.
Only 5,351 units of this model were produced in 1989, this was also the last and most sought after year of production. The R107 replaced the W113 (Pagode) in 1971, and was succeeded in 1981 by the W126C for coupe models (SLC), and by the R129 for convertible models (SL) in 1989. Some changes regarding the engine were already implemented in 1976; the electronic (Bosch D-jetronic) was replaced by the mechanical (Bosch KA-jetronic) fuel injection in all models. In comparison with other engines on the American market, the Mercedes models were always poorly motorised. This is why Mercedes decided to introduce the 560SL (BM107.048) in 1983. The 5.6-litre V8 engine (M117E52) produced 227 HP (4750 rpm) and 366 Nm (4000 rpm). This 560 model was only available for the US market.
This Mercedes is in an original condition (hardtop, engine and transmission are all original). The car starts straight away and idles nicely at 800 RPM and brakes properly.
This Mercedes is equipped with all luxury options such as air conditioning, airbags, power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control and a third brake light. The engine compartment also looks fresh and well-maintained.
The car has reasonably good Midnight (Dark) Blue paint (Paint code 904), up close it has some signs of wear, this is to be expected with a car of this age. The original interior is also still in a very neat condition, as pictured. The car comes with the original manual, booklets, original first-aid kit and a matching spare wheel.
These Mercedes R107 convertibles are starting to follow the prices of the Pagoda, so don’t wait too long! Especially in this neat and original condition, these classic SLs are becoming harder to find. The 560SL model is much sought after and increasingly rare.
