This car becomes more and more collectible every day...a luxury cruiser if there ever was one. Collectors are familiar with the Mercedes SL roadsters from the 1970s. However, not everyone is familiar with the hardtop 4-seater SL, called the SLC. Built on a slightly longer wheelbases, these handsome coupes were luxurious sport-touring cars with admirable performance and typical Mercedes luxury. If you need a little practicality with your sporty performance, this 1978 450SLC is a great choice.
The 450SLC is powered by a single overhead cam 4.5-liter V8 making 222 horsepower and 278 pounds of torque, which were impressive figures in 1974. With Bosch fuel injection, the engine has a bubbly, friendly idle, and smooth power delivery that feels like the engine will pull forever. A dual exhaust system with a single muffler and resonator delivers a pleasant, bubbly idle and a rich full-throttle growl that is perfectly appropriate to the sport/luxury mission of the SLC. The 4.5-liter engines are typically Mercedes reliable, and with a long production run, parts are still plentiful and easy to find.
Great-driving, fun, comfortable car, even four decades later later. If you're looking for something a little out-of-the-ordinary that can still be driven and enjoyed like a modern car, it is the 450 SLC.
