Royal Flush – An SL Full House

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.
