1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL

Finished in rare blue black metallic and saffron interior(Lack-Code - 199 - blauschwarz/ Polster-Code - 274 - safran), this example represents the very high point of the venerable R107 series. This is a final production year car (Model Year 1989) and at 5.6 litres is equipped with the largest displacement engine ever offered in this chassis. (Over its seventeen-year run, the 107 was variously offered in 2.8 L, 3.0 L, 3.5 L, 3.8 L, 4.2 L, 4.5 L, 5.0 L and 5.6 L guises.)
Most notably, this is a European model trimmed car--distinguished by its unique bumpers, headlamps, front signal lamps, front and rear number/license plate mounts, rear deck spoiler and the absence of a third brake light.
This matching numbers example has been sparingly driven, covering an average of less than 3,000 miles per year. As expected, the motor runs effortlessly while the transmission shifts with smooth precision. Outside, the car is in similarly exceptional condition, having been repainted and reupholstered at a cost in excess of USD 30,000 just five years ago. The work was undertaken by a specialist coach builder and restorer of classic motorcars. Receipts detailing work will be included with sale.
The car is 29 years old and is not without imperfection (a few rock chips from motorway debris, wear etc.) The hard and soft tops are incredibly preserved as is the bright work throughout.
Car is sold as-is where-as but seller encourages inspection to fully appreciate.Reduction in car collection motivating sale.
