We thought a little blog was in order as our showroom currently has a full house… meaning we have in stock at least one of each badge designation the R107 SL wore during it’s lifetime. In numerical order these badges were 280SL, 300SL, 350SL, 380SL, 420SL, 500SL and 560SL.
R107 Engine Timeline:
R107 SL Production began in 1971 with the 280SL, 350SL and 450SL.
In 1980 the 350SL and 450SL were replaced by the 380SL and 500SL.
In late 1985 the 280SL was replaced by a new 300SL, and the 380SL by the 420 SL.
The 500SL engine continued and a new 5.6 litre V8 was added for export markets, notably the USA and Japan.
For every SL owner we have met, the key aspect in ownership and running these amazing motorcars is ensuring that this prized possession remains a joy to use whenever, wherever and however; protecting and increasing its value over time.
As the World’s largest specialist in classic SL’s we have drawn upon our experience with our customers, with hundreds of cars and thousands of hours behind the wheel and under the ramp to develop CARE; a way of engaging a community of owners and protecting the value of their investments as well as enhancing their cars condition, reliability and desirability.
