The Mercedes R107 was launched in 1971 and production continued through to 1989, being the longest single series ever produced by the firm, besides the G-Class utility vehicle. The R107 replaced the W113 Pagoda SL in 1972 and was replaced by the R129 SL in 1989. The R107 had the longest run of any Mercedes chassis, built for 18 years from 1971 to 1989. Some 237,000 R107 SL's were built and about two thirds were sold in the US. The car was essentially a two seater sports car although a small seating arrangement was available behind the front seats. The SLC was made alongside the SL, sporting a coupe body similar to the SL but with 10 inches added to the chassis creating a fully functional four seater which allowed passengers in the rear to travel in comfort. Mercedes offered a number of engine choices over the years, the first cars in 1971 having the 350 engine, a V8 3.5 litre unit fitted. By 1973 a larger 4.5 litre V8 was available, constructed primarily for the US market and in 1974 the 280 engine was introduced, a 2.8 Litre straight six which was probably more suitable for the European market given the petrol crisis during that period. The 380SL we offer today is resplendent in red coachwork with a grey Mercedes-Benz Tex interior. Built in 1985, B924 VUA comes complete with cruise control, fog lights and a Gemini alarm system. Supplied with a full UK V5 registration document, current MoT road test certificate and road tax at time of writing. A 12 month service was carried out by Charterhouse Garage in Surrey in 2009 which included new shock absorbers, front and rear. In addition, a rare and desirable hard top accompanies the car which allows all year round driving.
