2. Model History

After The The Mercedes Benz Factory Ceased Production Of The Beautiful Mercedes Benz W113 In 1971, We Had To Wait A Further Twelve Months Before The Ultra New And Radical Mercedes Benz SL R107 Model Was Showcased At MB Showrooms To Eager Buyers All Around The World And Was To Be An Instant Successful Chapter For The German Factory. The R107 Series SL Gave Those Luxury Hungry Buyers More Up To Date And Relevant Stylish Interiors, A Wider Choice Of Bigger Engines And A Re-Designed Sharper, More Contemporary Bodywork And Still After Nearly Forty-Six Years, This Important And Integral Mercedes Benz Classic Has Only Ever Become More Attractive And Desirable To Worldwide Collectors And Enthusiasts. The R107 Typified 70`s & ’80s Glitz, Regularly Starring Alongside A Pair Of Shoulder Pads & Stetson Head Wear On Dallas, Dynasty And Was Of Course Often Seen On The American TV Crime Show Hart-To-Hart, But It Also Has An Enduring Appeal That Goes Way Beyond That, As This Distinctive Model Boasted The Longest Production Run Of Any SL Brand And Was Sold For An Incredible 17 Years Duration From 1972 To 1989. Many Believe That The SL Was So Very Successful Due To These Splendid Cars Being Adored By Both Female & Male Drivers, With The Performance Delivery Being Silky Smooth, Legendary Build Quality Detail And A Body With Straight Muscular Lines Mixed With Elegant Curves, With Even The SL Denoting "Sport Light", So Perfect For Any Gender To Really Enjoy. Between 1985 & 1989 The Factory Included As Part Of Their SL Line Up The Fabulous SL500, With This Now Rare Edition To Have A Larger V8, Which Produced A More Than Healthy 240 BHP, Capable Of Accelerating Both Driver And Passenger From 0-62MPH In Just 7.4 Seconds, Would Further Glide To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 140 MPH, With All Of This Power Controlled By The Silky Smooth Four Speed Automatic Transmission. Of Course, The Previous W113 Has Done Remarkably Well On Value Growth With Many Perfect Right Hand Drive Examples Left, Offering Prices Ranging From £100,000 To The Dizzy Heights Of Near £200,000 For The Very Best Left To Acquire, Which In Turn Has Strengthened The Values Of Next Generation R107 Model, With Further Future Investment Opportunity Growth Being Inevitable, With Rare Low Mileage, Perfect Examples Being Snapped Up By An Every Demanding Global Collectable Market Place.

3. Interior

The Mercedes Benz SL Interior Offers A Truly Retro Feel, With The Build Quality And Finishing Detail Being Second To None, With Luxurious Refinements And Comfort Still Evident After Nearly 33 Years. This Lovely Modern Day Classic Mercedes Benz Was Opted From Factory With The Black Leather Sport Seats Beautifully Complimented With Black Piping, The Lighter Tan Carpets That Have Been Protected With The Mercedes Benz SL Over Mats, Black Leather Look Trimmed Door Cards, The Ebony Black Dash That Wraps Around This Inviting Cabin, The Beige Fabric Roof Lining, The Obsidian Black Leather Bound Four Spoke Steering Wheel, Chromed Seat Brackets, Chromed Lined Internal Door Brackets And Decorated With Burr Walnuts Polished Veneers Detailed With Chrome, That Finalise This Elegant Environment Off Perfectly. The Interior Finish, Along With The Total Interior Condition Is Presented In Fabulous Order And With This Will Delight The Next Prospective Lucky Keeper.
