About This Car
1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 500 SL
Pine Green (254) with Beige Leather (275 and Black Fabric Soft Top (9001)
This car represents an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to enjoy continental cruising in a well cared for and superbly presented V8 engined SL. Owned by a customer who we have known for some time, this car has always been kept in the very best running order and has enjoyed a number of European adventures. In the last few years this car has been subject to an extensive amount of work, including the all important suspension bushes to ensure it handles as well as the day it left the factory.
The colour is Pine Green 254, one of 17 different green shades offered for the R107 SL but a colour that was only available for the final three years of production. It is a very rare colour to find on any SL, let alone a late model V8 with beige leather.
In addition to being a rare colour combination, this car also boasts air conditioning. This optional extra would have cost the first owner just over £1943, or just over £5100 in today’s money! Add to that the additional £851 of the leather seats, and you end up with a total ‘new’ price of around £44,500 – roughly equivalent to £117,000 today.
This car is well known to SLSHOP. Coming with a large file of invoices and receipts, it underwent significant preparation before first appearing in our showroom in 2018. The spend at that time was over £5,000, covering work and parts to bring this car to our high presentation standards.
The current owner purchased this 500SL from SLSHOP in August 2019; but has since decided to replace this SL with an Aston Martin. Though we’re not sure we agree with that decision, it does give someone else the opportunity to own this incredibly rare R107.
We believe the combination of colour, equipment and careful stewardship make this 500SL the perfect companion for your next big trip.
