Trade-in car. You may have been given the assignment by your manager to build an SL that would make you forget the world-famous W113 Pagoda. That would not have been easy in principle. However, Mercedes would not be Mercedes if they did not come up with another scoop that would set the bar in the car world so high with the arrival of the W107. Production of the R107 began in 1971 and when the last one was built in 1989, Mercedes had produced more than 237,000, making it, together with the G-class, one of the longest-running models in the brand’s history. The R107 (“R” for Roadster) was important for the American market and so it had to be equipped with all kinds of luxury options in order to sufficiently satisfy the customer.

This 280SL was only delivered in Europe, strangely enough, an inline six could not meet the extremely strict emission standards in the United States, where the 5.6 litre V8 could. This 280SL was first registered in 1979 after which it was exported to California. For those who love numbers; A 6-cylinder in-line of 2.8 litres (intended as a more economical model in connection with the oil crisis of the early 1970s), 185 HP and a 3-speed automatic transmission, a top speed of 207 kilometres per hour, no figures to be ashamed of. at that time, typical . This example has only driven 124,446 kilometres during its 44-year life, quite unique, right?
The beautiful colour, Milan Brown, makes this car look very chic. The car is intended for the right enthusiast who really just wants to drive and enjoy this R107.
The overall condition of the car is quite original and untouched, we call that ‘in good used condition’. Some time ago the car received new paint (not unusual for a car from California, the sun apparently shines there quite often), and the interior is largely original with the associated correct signs of wear. The engine runs very nicely, and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly, driving an R107 gives you that typical luxurious Benz feeling that only Mercedes can do. Ready for many more years of driving pleasure, why not as your new daily driver?
