1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC Chassis no. 107.02412022419 4,520cc SOHC V8 Engine Bosch Fuel Injection 180bhp at 5,200rpm 4-Speed Automatic Transmission 4-Wheel Independent Suspension 4-Wheel Disc Brakes *Believed to be 2 owner car *Striking color combination *High quality, solid Mercedes-Benz cruiser *Complete with books and tools THE MERCEDES-BENZ R107 First introduced in 1971/72, the luxurious 450 SL roadster and 450 SLC coupé were outwardly identical to their '350' (3.5-liter) sister models, though endowed with superior performance courtesy of a more-powerful 4.5-liter V8 engine. Built on a longer wheelbase, the coupé accommodated two rear seat passengers and provided greater boot space than the roadster. Mercedes-Benz's increasing preoccupation with safety was evident in the design of the interior, which boasted a padded dash top, recessed or flexibly mounted switch gear, and padded steering wheel on a 'collapsible' column. Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection was standardized for 1975, electronic ignition and self-adjusting hydraulic tappets being introduced at the same time. Maximum speed of this superbly equipped top-of-the-range coupé was around 215km/h. THE MOTORCAR OFFERED Such is the quality of these cars that if looked after well, they do preserve exceptionally as evidenced by this very fine example. Remarkably, it is believed this Mercedes has been under the care of just two owners over the course of its life. As such, it benefits from a thoroughly logged maintenance record within the original books accompanying the car. A striking color combination of Anthracite grey over a fully red interior make this SLC stand out from the more typically staid specifications of most others. Despite the high mileage, the coupe shows in good condition and has not been molested by any aftermarket accessories, as evidence by the Becker radio still found in the dash board. In its timeless colors and with dependable mechanical underpinnings, coupled to the fact that these Mercedes are incredibly modern to drive compared with almost all of their contemporaries, make this a perfect daily driver today, or future collectible.
