Offered at No Reserve, this R107 SL would benefit from some TLC...

  • Dating from 1978, the 230bhp, 450SL was no slouch with 0-60 in 9.7 seconds and 133mph
  • This is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive car now finished in Navy Blue with a matching hard top
  • Fitted with later M-B 'Starfish' alloys but the valuable original 'Mexican Hat' alloys are included
  • R107 SLs are fast, comfortable and discreetly understated, and quite valuable in good condition
  • Some time and a moderate investment would take this Classic Mercedes to the next level

This car was consigned by Nick Bicknell. Please feel free to contact Nick on 07957 279000 / nickb@classiccarauctions.co.uk
