Vehicle Description

It was flavour of the month in the late 1980s, and it has become totally fashionable again today: The unusual, but amazingly beautiful colour combination of petrol-metallic paintwork and beige interior, as proudly displayed by this Mercedes-Benz 560 SL of the R 107 series.

It is a late model from the penultimate year of the production run, delivered in 1988 to its destination in the USA. Only this year, the erstwhile top of the range convertible found its way back to good old Germany. The mighty 5.6 litre V8 delivers 169 kW (230 hp), and befitting its rank, it sends drive to the rear wheels by means of a 4-speed automatic gearbox.

The 560 SL features airbag, power windows, cruise control, centre armrest and the original Becker Grand Prix radio.

With 126,000 unwarranted miles on the clock, this is an attractive looking car in a good state of preservation, outside and in. The dashboard is devoid of cracks, only the wood in the centre console has minor imperfections. A body-coloured hard top in good shape comes with the car.


 

A pearl for the overseas market – now she’s coming home!

The Mercedes Benz R 107 roadster series, unveiled in 1971, became the convertible with the highest production numbers of any SL, with over 237,000 units built over 18 years, which also means the longest production-run of any Mercedes-Benz passenger car series ever.

The 560 SL (1985 to 1989) was conceived as an export model for the American, Australian and Japanese market and never officially offered in Europe. The 5.6-litre eight-cylinder engine (M 117) was created by lengthening the stroke of the 5.0-litre V8, it produces 170 kW (231 PS).

Only the Best “Made in Germany” for the States – the SL 560 US versions were shipped from the factory “fully loaded”. The only additional equipment on the options list was a seat heating.
