This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 500SL R107 in Signal Red, complete with hardtop, softop and Beige sports check and MBtex upholstery personifies this SL as the (we think) most sort after and attractive combination of speciation and colours that suit most tastes.
A car that maybe pushing 40 years old…. But can still hold the proverbial candle to most cars on the road today … it’s range topping 5 litre 245bhp motor mated to an excellent Mercedes-Benz (own) manufactured 4 speed automatic gearbox, which was, at the time way better than whatever Borg-Warner or ZF could even hope to offer.
This Mercedes-Benz SL is in our opinion the best combination of specifications.
It’s condition is simply straight/excellent.. it’s lines unmarred as it’s unmarked paintwork suggests.
Mechanically it matches its stunning aesthetic stance, and needs to be seen to be appreciated, so one can only advise any inspection and road test drive.
Owned for the last 21 years by one gentleman that serviced and looked after her with regular servicing, which is full and mostly Mercedes-Benz.
The mileage is fully documented as 93k miles which is low and not often repeated with full history, backed up with a plethora of bills (£16k) and MOTs.
