About This Car
1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 300 SL
Nautic Blue Metallic (929) with Grey Leather (278) and Dark Blue Fabric Soft Top (5010)
There are certain colours that collectors, investors and enthusiasts gravitate to above all others. For a Mercedes-Benz R107 SL, Nautic Blue is one of those colours. Matched here with Grey Leather, the end result is a smart, regal looking classic car that wears it’s chrome with pride. There is something about the way the Nautic Blue finish is complimented by the chrome. The light interior completes the package, with the darker shades of wood giving the cabin an air of opulence and class.
Nautic Blue has always been a popular R107 shade, but this car matches a highly desirable colour combination with exceptional provenance and incredibly low mileage – the complete picture of a superb SL.
