About This Car

1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SL (R107)

Black (0400) with Anthracite Leather (271) and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)

39,360 miles

This is a very rare ‘Triple Black’ car with black coachwork, black leather and black soft top. Triple Black is an incredibly smart colour combination for an R107 SL, one we don’t see as often as we would like.

The combination of black paint with chrome brightwork gives the R107 a classic, 1950s style, which is appreciated now more than ever. When these cars were new in the late 1980s, buyers were more likely to opt for the metallic and pastel shades. For this reason we see very few pure black R107 SLs.

Leather and rear seating would have been expensive optional extras back in 1989, making this a very carefully considered purchase for the first owner.

Non standard factory extras specified with this car are Air Conditioning, Leather, Rear Seats and a Fire Extinguisher. These would have added almost £3,600 to the purchase price, or £10,000 in today’s money.

Brand new this car had a list price of £41,700.00 (£109,999.01 today) with options totalling

£3,451.19 ( £3,451.19 today) giving a total ‘new’ price in today’’s money of £119,102.79.

A rare chance to secure a black 500SL and a car that won’t be with us for very long.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour – the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.

All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
