Located in San Diego, CaliforniaFresh out of a Vintage European Collection, This ultra-rare, California 1980 280SL with 4 speed manual transmission has been held in a private collection by the current owner for over 10 years. No expense was spared in enhancing and maintaining this classic piece of history. Exhaustive records dating back to the 1980â€™s from the original owner detail the carâ€™s Daimler Benz in Germany maintenance records as well as all importation records & mechanical history which includes a full engine rebuild/overhaul 10,000 miles ago. Mechanically this 280sl with its M110 engine handles and performs the way itâ€™s designers in Germany intended it to. With outstanding compression, the dual overhead cam inline 6 accelerates with plenty of low end torque and power yet still pulls strong at speeds of 80 M.P.H. The manual 4 speed gear box allows for shifting at higher RPMs making allowing for a more sporty drive. Recent suspension work makes for a tight ride while the newly replaced shifter bushings make shifting a pleasurable experience. It is abundantly clear why many prefer the lighter weight of the inline 6 R107/C107 versus itâ€™s heavier V8 counterpart.
