THE MERCEDES-BENZ R107
When Mercedes redesigned its famed SL in 1971, there was a lot of equity behind it. After all, when the incomparable 300SL Coupe and Roadster were built only just 20 years before, they set the world on fire. The result was a luxurious V8 Convertible that ended up being the longest passenger car series ever produced by Mercedes to date. Despite its age, the final iteration, the 560SL, remained a prized automotive status symbol and an iconic part of the brand’s lineup until it was finally replaced by the all-new fourth-generation SL in 1990. Launched in 1980, the 380SL convertible and 380SLC Coupe retained the Type 107 bodyshell first introduced in 1971 in virtually unchanged form apart from the addition of a front spoiler.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
Completed at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant in February of 1982, this exceptional 380SL was delivered new to Vancouver, B.C. through Mercedes-Benz West Broadway. The new Mercedes-Benz looked just as it does today: finished in (DB473 Champagne Metallic over a Chocolate Brown interior and generously optioned and equipped with both the car’s soft and hardtop.The original and only owner was clearly very fond of the car, they would keep the car for over three decades until it was purchased by our company.
Today, this fine Mercedes-Benz presents in extraordinarily original condition throughout. With just over 98,000 documented kilometres from new, the car appears to be just a few years old, with original finishes throughout and a comprehensive history file containing the original books, tools and spare key. We have every service record back to 1982 that comes with the car. Overall this is an extremely original, high quality Mercedes-Benz ideally suited to open top touring, with nearly all the power amenities of a modern car, yet with the elegance and style of the classic Mercedes-Benz SL.
